    This isn't quite a pardon, but involves Dershowitz and a corrupt Jewish crook being helped by the Trump administration to get his claws on his assets that were blocked by sanctions in the US. Israeli billionaire Dan Gertler was sanctioned in December 2017 by the US Treasury for bribing Congo officials to get his hand on mining rights (including diamonds). This prohibited Gertler from doing business with U.S. citizens, companies or banks. The Democratic Republic of Congo is one of the world’s richest countries in natural resources, while the population is dirt poor. Dan Gertler is also a business partner of Beny Steinmetz (who was recently convicted in Switzerland), whose nephew is in business with Jared Kushner (husband of Ivanka Trump). Gertler hired Alan Dershowitz (him again!) and former FBI director Louis Freeh to petition the U.S. government to remove him from the sanctions list. On 15 January, in its final week as U.S. President, Donald Trump’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (of the Treasury Department) eased sanctions against Dan Gertler. While the license doesn't remove Gertler, or his more than 30 companies, from the sanctions list... it authorises, until 31 January 2022, “all transactions and activities” otherwise prohibited by sanctions against them. In other words, until 31 January 2022 he can conduct business in the US as if he isn't sanctioned. The most important aspect is probably that also Gertler’s assets are unblocked that have been held by banks in the US, including Citibank, Deutsche Bank, Bank of New York Mellon and Wells Fargo.

If he quickly moves his funds it wouldn't matter much if the Biden administrations cancels the license.

    For some reason the official White House statement "forgot" to mention that Alan Dershowitz also lobbied for the following violent criminal's pardon - Jonathan Braun. Dershowitz claimed that he was paid only “a very small amount of money” to get Braun out of jail. The White House falsely claimed that Braun had served 5 of his 10-year sentence, while he had been incarcerated for only 1 year, and also misspelled his name. In 2009, agents from the DEA raided a house on Staten Island that Braun’s drug ring used to stash large stockpiles of drugs. Immediately he rented a car to escape to Canada. After several months, he fled to Israel, where he continued to run his drug operation. In the fall of 2009, Braun foolishly returned to the US, where he was arrested. Braun was indicted in 2010 and in 2011 pleaded guilty to importing drugs and money laundering. As part of his plea, Braun was released on bail to continue his life of crime as a loan shark for small businesses. Braun blackmailed his victims into paying through threats and actual violence. For example, in the summer of 2018 Braun threw a man off a two-story balcony in Staten Island. In 2019, Braun was finally sentenced to 10 years for being one of the major distributors of marijuana in New York City. Braun was finally locked up in January 2020.

    I agree... I can't really remember the March 1975 riots over the new city hall at the Waterlooplein as I was less than 1 year old, but protests continued throughout the decade. As far as I can tell these were more extreme than what we're seeing now. See the news on these riots in 1980 (in Dutch). The difference is that the protests now aren't just "extremists", but many "good citizens". Protesters include grandparents that don't want their grandchildren to grow up in the corona police state. And the protests aren't limited to the big cities (Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague), but are also happening in the smaller cities in the south and east of the country (Eindhoven is the only "big" city in the South-east).

    Today I went to the Museumplein in Amsterdam, I didn't see any damage, besides the damage to the lawn caused by the police horses and cars... The authorities are already calling this "the worst violence to hit the Netherlands in 40 years". I can vaguely remember the protests at the Waterlooplein when I was a kid, where they planned to build the new city hall, which seems more intense to me... All over the country, they've given the cops even more powers to harass peaceful citizens. What else can you expect in a police state? Israel's favourite Dutch politician Geert Wilders has already called fot the army to end the protests. The riot squad have broken up "illegal" protests in more than 10 cities, including: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Den Bosch, Zwolle, Amersfoort, Alkmaar, Hoorn, Gouda, and Haarlem.

    There has been at least one woman that lost her baby within 3 days after being poisoned with the experimental mRNA Pfizer vaccine:https://archive.is/5F5gF The following is the UK COVID-19 vaccination program Information for healthcare practitioners (republished 11 January 2021). It shows that women that get pregnant despite being vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine come under complete surveillance of Big brother (of course people that don't get vaccinated are also carefully monitored). These pregnant women won't get vaccinated during pregnancy, don't have to abort their baby, but for some reason have to be vaccinated ASAP after childbirth (Page 12). https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/951155/COVID-19_vaccination_programme_guidance_for_healthcare_workers_11_January_2021_V3.1.pdf

    The CEO United Airlines said companies should require employees to get vaccinated for COVID-19, according to a transcript of a Thursday townhall with company employees provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation. The airline is considering a vaccine mandate for employees, but there are “logistical challenges that we need to work through” before that happens, a company spokesman told the DCNF. “I think the right thing to do is for United Airlines, and for other companies, to require the vaccines and to make them mandatory,” United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby said in the townhall, according to the transcript. Kirby said the company has to overcome “logistical challenges” for the endeavor, according to the transcript. The company also noted that Kirby disclosed the information to the company’s workers “in the interest of transparency.” The CEO said he doesn’t think the company will be alone in mandating employee vaccinations.

    Giving the other side something they think has value but really doesn't is getting a great deal and that is what Trump did. Republicans thought Bolton as NSA was valuable to them and they saw value in not overriding the vetoes of a popular president from their own party. Rand gets nothing from anyone for his confirmations votes. And Rand has stated that a POTUS has a right to have his appointments confirmed, Trump never said Congress had a right to not be vetoed, he used veto threats to get things he wanted and he also issued vetoes.

    President Donald couldn't pardon him in Switzerland... Blood diamond merchant Beny Steinmetz (another client of Alan Dershowitz) was convicted for bribing officials to reap iron ore resources in the West African country Guinea. He was sentenced to 5 years in Swiss prison and a $56.5 million fine. In 2005, Steinmetz started paying bribes totaling nearly $10 million to Conté, who ruled Guinea from 1984 until his death: https://archive.is/HZYKB

    There are some genuine protests against the corona lockdown. Relatively many of these protests took place in (small) cities in the east and south of the Netherlands. Of the "big cities", no protests in Rotterdam and Utrecht. The protests near (and inside) the central station in Eindhoven look "violent". Yesterday, "illegal" protests against the fascist COVID-19 police state took place in Amsterdam, Eindhoven, The Hague, Tilburg, Venlo, Helmond, Breda, Arnhem, and Apeldoorn. The riot squad, once again, made an end to these protests in Amsterdam (Museumplein) and Eindhoven (18 Septemberplein). The cops used water cannons, horses, dogs, batons and tear gas against the demonstrators. You see, not "breaking" any curfew in the daylight, at the Museumplein in Amsterdam.

    https://www.takimag.com/article/the-week-that-perished-123/ The Week’s Most Humbling, Grumbling, and Bumbling Headlines ARBEIT MACHT KRANKHEITSFREI For almost a year now, anti-lockdown protesters and refuseniks in the U.S. have dropped the capital N-word regarding heavy-handed government efforts to control the behavior of Americans in the name of (supposedly) controlling Covid. The capital N-word is, of course, quite different from the lower-case n-word, which only rappers and Quentin Tarantino are allowed to use. Conversely, everyone’s allowed to say the big N-word—Nazi—as long as they’re lobbing it at someone in hatred and not claiming it for themselves with pride. And the repressive (and in many cases blatantly unconstitutional) responses to Covid by state and local governments have earned a lot of American politicians the “Nazi” moniker. Churches shuttered, small businesses padlocked, bench-sitters, park-players, gym-goers, maskless walkers, and restaurant diners rousted, fined, and in some cases jailed by “Covid Nazi” public officials. It must have been terribly upsetting for the Germans to see another nation claim the title of “Naziest of them all.” Rather like when the French see cheap illegitimate knockoff champagne.

    Bolton got a worthless position and humiliation but Trump got to please Republicans who wanted him and get their support for other good things. Rand gets nothing out of this vote and continues his stated betrayal of the Senate's role of consenting or not to cabinet nominees, Trump never said Congress has a right to pass bills so he would never veto one. Rand is also a Senator, the only power he has is to vote, Trump as POTUS had power to do far more than sign or veto bills and needed support from Republicans for what he did. Rand has no leverage with his single vote and would lose nothing by voting no, Trump had lots of leverage as the single person with veto power and he was able to use it to influence bills (if not dictate their entire contents) or to horse trade for Republican support on other things, he would have lost all of that if he went around vetoing bills and getting overridden all the time.

    Another freemason that became a "hero" of the American revolution is George Washington (US president 1789–1797). It isn't really secret, but it could come as quite a shock to learn that through the War of Independence, George Washington was a shareholder in the privately owned British central bank, Bank of England! The Continental Congress selected Washington as the commander-in-chief of the armed forces. As an appointed military officer, he held an “office ... under the United States” and could not “accept of any ... emolument” from a “foreign State”. In other words, General Washington wasn't allowed to accept a “profit, gain, or advantage” from a “foreign state-chartered ... company”, like the Bank of England: https://reformclub.blogspot.com/2019/05/general-george-washington-and-bank-of.html (https://archive.is/IMBQj) George Washington became "America's first spymaster" when he directed Major Benjamin Tallmadge to form the Culper Ring to covertly collect information about the British in New York in 1778. Maybe to help the British?!?

    In 1730 or 1731, Benjamin Franklin was initiated into the local Masonic lodge. Since then, Franklin in his articles for the Gazette praised Freemasonry in America. These writings are sometimes referred to as the beginning of Freemasonry in the USA. Franklin remained a Freemason for the rest of his life. See Benjamin Franklin pictured as a freemason (at the Loge des Neuf Soeurs in Paris?). In 1734, Benjamin Franklin became a grand master in Pennsylvania, and published the first Masonic book in the Americas (James Anderson's Constitutions of the Free-Masons). From 1735 to 1738, Franklin was secretary of St. John's Lodge in Philadelphia. In 1760, Benjamin Franklin was elected as Provincial Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of England.

    From late March to early April, because of the "pandemic", the number of non-influenza vaccinations dropped by more than 2 million in the US. Orders for measles-containing vaccines alone dropped by more than 300,000 doses. Not surprisingly the number of reports of adverse events (AEs) for infants younger than 2 dropped from 4,000 for 2016 to 2019, to 2,303 in 2020. While our wonderful media deny that vaccines cause Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) at the same time that the number of vaccinations dropped, the number of sudden child deaths also dropped. The number of SIDS dropped from about 20 from 2014 to 2019 to 5 in 2020.

    Most people these days know how bad slavery really was in the (not so good) old days, while continuing to be an obedient slave for their masters... It's interesting that many of the families that were wealthy centuries ago, still rule the world. This includes the descendants of slaveowners, like for example President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen. Her ancestors were among the wealthiest in British North America in the 18th century. Her grandparents were the cotton merchant Carl Albrecht (1875–1952) and Mary Ladson Robertson (1883–1960), who belonged to a plantation owning family of the southern aristocracy from Charleston. Mary descended from lieutenant governor of South Carolina James Ladson, who owned over 200 slaves. James Ladson's great-grandfather Joseph Wragg was the largest slave trader in British North America at the time slavery in the US was abolished. In the late 1970s, Ursula von der Leyen studied at the Fabian London School of Economics where she used the name Rose Ladson, in honour of her slaveowning ancestors. She married into the elite Von der Leyen family.
