Accused six-time bank robber freed by state bail reforms is finally jailed — by the feds (LOOK)
An accused, six-time bank robber who’s become the face of all that’s wrong with New York’s new bail-reform law is now finally in jail — thanks to federal prosecutors, who have seized control of his case and done what no state judge was free to do. Gerod Woodberry turned himself in at the Manhattan Criminal Court building on Centre Street around 4 p.m., Friday — 18 days after his alleged spree began. “I’m Woodberry,” he told a court worker. “I’m the one that’s been robbing banks.”
The feds promptly scooped him up, arguing that Woodberry, 42, had been arrested, then quickly freed, last week after his fourth alleged heist, and then allegedly went on to rob two more banks. And those two latest allegations weren’t expected to land him behind bars either. As a non-violent defendant under New York law — Woodberry allegedly uses notes, not a weapon, to demand cash from tellers in Brooklyn and Manhattan — state judges are barred from setting any bail for him under the new reforms that went into effect on Jan. 1... https://nypost.com/2020/01/17/bail-reform-bank-robber-surrenders-inside-nyc-courthouse/
‘I’ve given up on your president’: Putin revealed contempt for Obama in 2013
Russian President Vladimir Putin said in 2013 that he was finished with President Barack Obama and would wait until the United States elected a president he could do business with. “I’ve given up on your president,” Putin said to then-Exxon chief Rex Tillerson, who would later become President Trump’s secretary of state. “I’ll wait for your next president and see if I can get along with him.”

Putin Sends His Constitutional Proposals to Parliament
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday submitted to parliament a package of constitutional amendments widely seen as an attempt to secure his grip on power well after his current term ends in 2024. Putin first presented the proposed changes in his state-of-the-nation address Wednesday, arguing they are intended to bolster the role of parliament and strengthen democracy. Kremlin critics have argued that they are intended to allow his rule for life... https://www.theepochtimes.com/putin-sends-his-constitutional-proposals-to-parliament_3210433.html
Antifa terrorists a NO SHOW at the Virginia pro-2A rally… deep state BACKS DOWN in presence of overwhelming patriot presence
The overwhelming numbers of armed patriots at the pro-2A rally in Richmond, Virginia has apparently caused Antifa terrorists and deep state operatives to back down from their plans to instigate staged violence for CNN’s cameras. While an estimated “tens of thousands” of armed patriots peacefully demonstrated at the Virginia capitol today, there were no reports of Antifa terrorists on the scene.
Ukraine and China Knew Hunter Biden Was a Chronic Drug Addict, Paid Him Millions Anyway – Used It as Fodder to Blackmail Joe Biden
Hunter Biden’s first arrest may have been when he was 18. Hunter was arrested on Jersey Shore related to drug charges in 1988 and had his record expunged. Many years later and after several stops into drug treatment facilities Hunter joined his father the Vice President on a trip to China in 2013 where Hunter — inexperienced and out of place — was able to secure a $1.5 billion from China for private equity fund which he was forming at the time. A year later in early 2014 Hunter was discharged from the Navy for testing positive for cocaine. Then in April 2014, just a couple months later, Hunter Biden Hunter joined the Board of Burisma Holdings in the Ukraine. Hunter served on the Board until early 2019. Hunter was paid approximately $50,000 a month in his position. The largest oil and gas company in the Ukraine hired a chronic drug addict only a few months after the addict was removed from the US Navy for doing cocaine... https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/01/ukraine-and-china-knew-hunter-biden-was-a-chronic-drug-addict-paid-him-millions-anyway-used-it-as-fodder-to-blackmail-joe-biden/
Indictments Coming? Obama & Hillary Look Like They Are Finally Going to Get Dragged into Barr & Durham’s Investigation
...Those of us who actually believe in the Constitution and the rule of law are awaiting U.S. Attorney John Durham’s factual findings and grand jury indictments detailing and holding accountable those responsible for the gross abuse of surveillance laws on American citizens by Obama’s intelligence community. In the meantime, it would serve us well to ignore the narrative engineers within the mainstream media, specifically from the New York Times (FBI) and the Washington Post (CIA) mouthpieces, who are working to lessen the impact of what is expected to be explosive revelations of political espionage arising from Durham’s work. And, if Durham is able to secure indictments against a slew of high-ranking Obama-era intelligence officials within the FBI, DOJ, CIA, and State Department this may be the breaking of the dam that will engulf many other scandals of his administration. These may include, but not be limited to, Uranium One, Skolkovo, Iran nuclearization, and collusion with the then corrupt Ukrainian government to help Hillary win the 2016 election... https://www.dcclothesline.com/2020/01/20/indictments-coming-obama-hillary-look-like-they-are-finally-going-to-get-dragged-into-barr-durhams-investigation/
Hillary Refuses to Support Bernie & Dark Secrets of the Past
She wants to be the first woman president and that has always been her goal. It was the reason she married Bill. All my sources have always made it very clear she has been the driving force behind Bill. She has tolerated his countless women because she is really a lesbian and it has been all about power. Some younger women hate her. They call her a “feminine nazi” who has hated men. It was Madeline Albright who had the audacity to say there was a “special place in hell” for women who don’t support Hillary Clinton. She expects women to vote for her just because she is a woman regardless of her political positions.
I have known women politicians like Maggie Thatcher. NEVER was there any emphasis that she was qualified because she was a woman. It was always about the issues – NEVER about gender. Hillary has NEVER gotten beyond the ’60s. She relives it every day in her world. She has been mad as hell because she was not born a man. It is well known that Bill Clinton lives in New York and Hilliary Clinton lives in DC where they collectively own separate residences. Now they only appear together in official capacities because the Clinton’s have a political partnership, not a marriage. Gennifer Flowers revealed in an interview that would ONLY be published in London, that she and Bill would have been together now if it wasn’t for Chelsea. She reported that Bill confided in her that Hillary was bisexual....
When they first got in the White House, a friend of mine who was the former chairman of the Republicans for Ronald Regan in a state, called me to tell me that a Secret Service agent had walked in on the second floor in the White House and caught Hillary in bed with another woman. She picked up an ashtray and threw it at him hitting him in the head. It was just a few weeks in the White House. I did not believe it and asked if this was what I was going to have to listen to for the next 4 years? He said this came directly from the Secret Service. I still did not believe it. Then I read a small piece on the incident. Hillary’s conduct with other women in the White House was indeed coming from the Secret Service and the rumor mill was overflowing so much that the Secret Service was warned to keep their mouths shut. The interesting aspect is that these stories would make the print, but typically OUTSIDE the USA – not within. https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/international-news/politics/hillary-refuses-to-support-bernie-dark-secrets-of-the-past/
