U.S. Attorney Condemns Project Veritas? Unbelievable!

In opposing James O’Keefe’s Motion for a Special Master, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York dangerously condemned Project Veritas as not worthy of journalistic protections afforded under the First Amendment, writing “Project Veritas is not engaged in journalism within any traditional or accepted definition of that word.”

Today however, in an unrelated matter, New York Supreme Court Justice Charles Wood seemed to disagree.

During a nearly a two-hour oral argument on whether the New York Times engaged in litigation misconduct by publishing the privileged attorney-client communications of Project Veritas’ lawyers in Project Veritas’ defamation case against the Times, Justice Charles Wood compared Project Veritas with the New York Times and noted that “both sides” in the case (both Project Veritas and the New York Times) “are media organizations” to which the First Amendment protections apply.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) have reintroduced legislation that urges the U.S. State Department to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization.

The measure, which was introduced in the Senate by Cruz with a companion bill in the U.S. House of Representatives by Diaz-Balart, requires the State Department to report to Congress about whether the Muslim Brotherhood meets the legal criteria for designation, and if so, will enable the United States to take action that could stifle the funding they receive to promote their malign activities.

The Senate bill is co-sponsored by Sens. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). The House bill is cosponsored by Reps. Kay Granger (R-Texas), Chuck Fleishmann (R-Tenn.), Bill Johnson (R-Ohio), Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.), Guy Reschenthaler (R-Pa.), John H. Rutherford (R-Fla.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Mike Bost (R-Ill.), Glenn Grothman (R-Wis.), Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) and Pat Fallon (R-Texas).

Several U.S. allies, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, have designated the Muslim Brotherhood as a terror group. Hamas, which is a Palestinian offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, is designated a terrorist organization by the State Department.

Things that tell a lot about a person’s psychology and personality

The unspoken things that tell about a person’s psychology and personality are many. The following thoughts stand out among them:
  1. Talk fast/interrupts: Was raised in a family where their opinion didn’t matter. And the only way to be heard was by getting it out as fast as possible, or interrupting.
  2. Empathic/Caring: Most likely had a abusive childhood. Some of the most abused can be the most caring.
  3. Emotions: If they have trouble expressing emotions or hold them in, another sign of a traumatic childhood, or past relationships.
  4. Soul Mate: Quickly call you their soulmate or “one” before you even learn their middle name. While I believe this connection can happen on rare occasions, but best to run if it happens quickly to be safe.
  5. Gossip: Do they constantly talk about others? How they talk about others is what they are saying about you too.
  6. Drama: Is there always a catastrophe in their life? Do they always create drama. This person needs drama in their life to distract them, from there self.
  7. Fault: Do they accept it when they are wrong? Or do they project, blame shift and deny responsibility. This here tells you how trustworthy and honest the person is.
  8. How they treat others: How they treat less fortunate is a direct reflection of who they really are. If they act superior to most, you have your answer.
  9. Friends: If they have none, or many, pay attention to that. They are the sum of the five people they hang around most. If their friends are liars, and dishonest, there’s your answer.
  10. Family: listen how they talk about their family, good or bad. Nobody’s family is perfect, if they paint their family as perfect, or try and make excuses for bad behaviors, well…..it will tell a lot if they are trustworthy and honest.
  11. Eye contact: If the person maintain eye contact in conversations. This show confidence and respect.
  12. Relationships: Do they quickly jump from one relationship to another with little to know alone time. This person is very insecure.
  13. Grandiose: Do they portray and image on social media and to others. But if you really get to know them, they are nothing like that. They often believe they are something they are not.
  14. Actions: You notice their words don’t align with their actions. They say one thing and it’s complete opposite. Untrustworthy.
  15. Attention to their presence: How does everyone react when they walk in a room? Does everyone get quiet, or are they open and happy to see this person? You can tell a lot how others perceive them when the relationship is new with this person.

Is morality relative to culture?

In Europe, in 1492, it was the moral thing to do to be covered head to toe. Yes, dress did sometimes accentuate some parts like cleavage in women. It was immoral to uncover body parts such as the buttocks or genitalia.

In the Americas, many tribes lived their entire lives in the nude. They went around their daily lives in the nude because the warm, humid environment year round made clothes unnecessary and and making them was a waste of time and resources.

When the Europeans encountered these tribes, they thought they were immoral because they were nude. They thought they were lascivious and loose because they were nude.

In fact, they followed codes of conduct around relationships and sex that were in many cases even stricter than the Europeans’. The nudity was not relevant to their conduct. They were not having sex around the clock as Europeans thought.
