Seth Rich’s Cousin Suspects He Was Killed For Talking To Wikileaks

Published

on

Jonathan Rich, the cousin of slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, is speaking out — and he does not believe that the murder was a botched robbery as the DC police and media claim.

In a now-deleted tweet, Jonathan responded to Sean Hannity of Fox News who had posted an article about their findings that his cousin had contacted WikiLeaks and sent them the emails which were released shortly after his death.

“First thing I said when my Dad told me was he knew something and he was murdered. The rest of the family thought I was nuts. See last name,” Jonathan tweeted.

He was promptly told not to comment by Andy Rich, and the tweet was deleted.

“This is not the place & not a topic for you to comment on. I love you but filter bro. #family,” Andy Rich tweeted in response.

Jonathan also responded to a tweet from James Woods on May 16, where he asked: “When will the #Russia gag start to wear thin? We are so over this baseless whining. Aren’t the #ToddlerTantrums wearing the #lefties out?”

“Maybe tomorrow when the #SethRich story hits Fox News,” Jonathan responded.

His first contact with a journalist about his cousin appears to be Kristen Soltis Anderson, a Republican columnist at the DC Examiner — in response to a tweet from the Democratic Party.

“He was my cousin we agreed on nothing, but he was a great kid who absolutely did not deserve this. #waste,” he tweeted at the Democratic Party’s Twitter account with the journalist tagged. It is unclear if he was responding to something that Anderson had retweeted, or if he had deliberately tagged her.

From there, he would occasionally comment on the case through his Twitter account, though his tweets went largely unnoticed.

On November 2, Jonathan responded to a tweet linking to a podcast that asked, “Why do people close to Hillary & Bill Clinton tend to end up dead in weird ways?”

“like my cousin.” Jonathan responded.

He expressed support for WikiLeaks in a tweet on October 14, posting a meme that read, “isn’t it strange that so many media outlets are now condemning WikiLeaks for doing what journalists used to do?”

On March 27, Jonathan posted a photo with Donna Brazile after she spoke at a fundraiser in Seth’s honor, and commented that she was very nice. Interestingly, the tweet that he was responding to was mocking the fact that she had given the debate questions to Hillary Clinton — a fact revealed by WikiLeaks.

“She spoke at my synagogue in Omaha. My cousin was the one killed in July in DC would worked for DNC. She came in for fundraiser,” Jonathan wrote in a follow up tweet.

In an article about the fundraiser, Seth’s father Joel said that his son’s motto was “go big, go bold, or go home.”

“Seth believed in making the most of each day and making the most of yourself,” Joel Rich said. “He wanted to create fun and laughter and to accomplish something that would help people. To make a positive change in their lives. His motto was, ‘Go big, go bold or go home,’” Joel Rich told the Jewish Press.

The question many now have — apparently including his cousin — is if that philosophy was what would ultimately lead to his death.

Early Tuesday morning, news broke that former DC homicide detective Rod Wheeler, who was privately investigating the murder, found evidence that the 27-year-old had been communicating with WikiLeaks. Since then, Kim Dotcom, who is close to WikiLeaks, has asserted that Rich was in fact the source and that he has evidence to prove it.

Another investigator involved in the case told Fox News that 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments were sent from Rich to MacFayden before May 21. That happens to be the number of emails included in the leak.

In a bizarre and aggressive statement following Wheeler’s report, Brad Bauman, the spokesman for the Rich family, who just so happens to be a Democratic Party crisis PR consultant, claims that even if an email [to WikiLeaks] was found, it would not be evidence of foul play.

The Democratic Party hired crisis manager has been spending his time silencing media exploring the allegations that Seth Rich was behind the DNC leak.

WikiLeaks has retweeted reports that he was behind the emails making their way into the hands of the controversial publisher, but have not issued any statements confirming or denying it directly.

We reached out to Jonathan Rich for comment for this story, but he did not respond by time of publishing.

See How This Trump Supporter Trolled De Niro At His Own Play

Published

on

A little more than a week after his vulgar anti-Trump rant at the Tony Awards, actor Robert de Niro was repaid in kind at the curtain call of his version of “A Bronx Tale,” the Broadway show.

In the style coined by independent reporter Laura Loomer, a man stood up at the end of the show, rushing the stage with a “Keep America Great” flag. De Niro is the director of the show.

“The times we live in,” wrote Joe Del Vicario, who was at the show. “At the end of A Bronx Tale, a man turned around and faced the audience to show us how big of a pair he has. He was escorted shortly after. It’s sad that people can’t enjoy a beautiful show and embrace its unifying message without politicizing it.”

 

But politicizing shows is nothing new for the left. In November 2016, a cast member of Broadway Musical “Hamilton” lectured Vice President Mike Pence after the show. Pence was booed while exiting the theatre.

WATCH:

“We, sir, we are the diverse American who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us.” said a cringeworthy Brandon Victor Dixon on stage.

After the show, Dixon continued injecting his politics into Broadway.

“We really thought this was an important moment to really say something,” he said. “To get in front of an individual with whom we feel we have differences and to make sure that he hears and he sees us.”

According to the new rules set by the left, yesterday’s “A Bronx Tale” protest is simply par for the course. The protestor, after all, was just getting in front of someone with whom he disagrees, right?

No surprise that the left does not want to play by the rules it has created.

Ted Cruz Beats Jimmy Kimmel in Charity Basketball Game

Published

on

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) beat late night television host Jimmy Kimmel 11-9 in a charity one-on-one basketball  game that came down to the wire.

“Can you be embarrassed by a picture of someone else’s dad? Because I am,” Kimmel said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” after Cruz was spotted a Houston Rockets basketball game last month wearing a t-shirt over a polo shirt. “When Ted arrived at the Toyota Center, some of the fans mistakenly thought it was Grandpa Munster Bobblehead Night. I mean, look at him. He looks, and I’m not joking here, he looks like a blobfish.”

Cruz responded by challenging Kimmel to a basketball game.

All right, Big Guy…you talk a good game. You besmirched my support for the Houston Rockets,” Cruz said on Twitter. “So let’s settle this man-to-man: one-on-one, hoops (or ‘ring-ball,’ if you prefer). The loser gives $5k to the (non-political) charity of the winner’s choice.”

The two played at Texas Southern University.

“The crowd is fired up,” Cruz tweeted before the game began, attaching a video of the arena.

The game was initially supposed to be played to 15, but the pair shortened it to 11 because it was taking so long.

Partick Svitek of the Texas Tribune covered the big game live:

“You’re a good sport,” a bitter Kimmel said after a crushing defeat. “I still think you’re a terrible senator.”

Ivy League Racism: Harvard Rates Asian Applicants Lower in ‘Likability,’ Other Traits

Published

on

Court documents unsealed Friday show that Harvard College consistently ranks Asian applicants lower on several personality traits than it does students of different ethnicities in its admissions process.

“Harvard’s admissions officials assign Asian Americans the lowest score of any racial group on the personal rating—a subjective assessment of such traits as whether the student has a ‘positive personality’ and ‘others like to be around him or her,’ has ‘character traits’ such as ‘likability … helpfulness, courage, [and] kindness,’ is an ‘attractive person to be with,’ is ‘widely respected,’ is a ‘good person,’ and has good ‘human qualities,’ say the court documents.

The Ivy League giant has been sued by Students for Fair Admissions, an activist group that is fighting the negative externalities of Affirmative Action, which is supposed to protect minorities against discrimination.

“It turns out that the suspicions of Asian-American alumni, students and applicants were right all along,” Student’s for Fair Admissions attorneys said in the court documents. “Harvard today engages in the same kind of discrimination and stereotyping that it used to justify quotas on Jewish applicants in the 1920s and 1930s.”

It has long been known that Affirmative Action policies negatively affect certain racial sub-groups, particular East Asians. A 2005 Princeton University study shows that Asian American students, on average, must score 270 points higher than Latino students, and 450 points higher than black students on the 1600 point SAT in order to be admitted to the same universities.

If Harvard were to admit students strictly based on merit and without consciousness, it would have a much higher percentage of Asian students.

But Students for Fair Admissions argues in its lawsuit that Harvard is actively taking measures to ensure against that. The group argues that Harvard has implemented a “soft-quota” of “racial-balancing” aimed at Asian students, which amounts to institutional discrimination in violation of civil rights law.

“Thorough and comprehensive analysis of the data and evidence makes clear that Harvard College does not discriminate against applicants from any group, including Asian-Americans, whose rate of admission has grown 29 percent over the last decade,” Harvard said in a statement.

Harvard failed to address the fact that the Asian applicant pool has grown more than 40 percent during roughly the same time period while other racial applicant groups has stayed approximately the same.

The school has previously defended itself by claiming that standardized test scores are not the only factor taken into consideration when admitting a student. That defense is meaningless in light of the fact Asians are scoring demonstrably lower on subjective personality assessments conducted by Harvard admissions employees.

The irony is palpable. Ivy League schools are the hotbed for social justice babble against perceived racism. But the racism that is right under their nose – blatant discrimination against a certain group of applicants solely on the basis of the immutable characteristic of race – not only goes unnoticed, but it rather defended.
