Zimbabwe to Compensate White Farmers by September

President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government has promised to compensate displaced white commercial farmers by September this year.

The move, which is aimed at facilitating the country’s international re-engagement efforts and boost investor confidence, will see the new administration coughing up close to $9 billion for the misdeeds of former president Robert Mugabe’s regime.

Mugabe’s government dispossessed at least 4,000 white farmers under his controversial land reforms programme that was aimed at distributing farms to “landless blacks”, but led to a massive slump in agricultural production.

Hillary Clinton: Running as a Capitalist Hurt Me in 2016 Presidential Election

OAN Newsroom
UPDATED 7:05 AM PT — Thurs. May 3, 2018

Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton signals the Democrat Party may be moving more toward socialism, admitting she regrets running on a pro-capitalist platform.

During an interview Wednesday, Clinton said her decision to identify as a capitalist hurt her in the 2016 election.

She said her economic policies were a hard-sell to Democrat primary voters.

The former secretary of state went on to admit that her former opponent and self-proclaimed Democrat-socialist Bernie Sanders polled more favorably among young voters.

During an earlier interview, Clinton said the reputation of capitalism is pretty much in tatters among young progressive voters, and that American companies are to blame.

Giuliani puts the kibosh on Stormy ‘payoff’ claim, and throws Laura Ingraham for a loop

Rudy Giuliani dropped what many are calling a bombshell during an interview on Fox News Channel’s Hannity, saying that President Donald Trump paid back his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, the $130,000 paid to porn star Stormy Daniels.

And while Giuliani was adamant that the pay off didn’t involve campaign money, the revelation sent the left into a frenzy because Trump stated on April 6 that he was not aware of the payment — even Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, a former defense attorney, said “that’s a problem,” but is there a simple explanation that’s being missed?

In a panel discussion Wednesday night on FNC’s The Ingraham Angle, contributor Byron York suggested that Giuliani “may not have thought this whole thing through,” prompting an interesting reply from Ingraham.

“If you go on ‘Hannity,’ you better think it through,” she said. “I love Rudy, but they better have an explanation for that, that’s a problem.”

Giuliani told Hannity that the $130,000 payment was “perfectly legal.”

“That money was not campaign money, sorry,” he claimed. “I’m giving you a fact now that you don’t know. It’s not campaign money. No campaign finance violation.”

When Hannity asked if this was because the money was “funneled” through Cohen’s law firm, the former mayor said, “Funneled it through the law firm, and the President repaid him.”

But Giuliani would also say Trump “didn’t know the specifics” of the payment.

Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., a participant on Ingraham’s panel, had a ready explanation that proved to be much closer to the truth, based on a later clarification by Giuliani.

“I don’t think somebody with President Trump’s income level writes all of his checks, you know what I mean?” he told Ingraham. “It would not surprise me if he authorized a payment and it gets lost in the shuffle. I know that sounds crazy perhaps on a certain level but here’s a guy with a massive income and he’s dealing with a lot of things.”

In a later interview with the Washington Post, Giuliani insisted the disclosure was no gaffe, saying he discussed it with Trump beforehand.

With the anti-Trump forces whipped into a lather over the possibility that Trump has been caught in a lie, Giuliani added more context to his comment with Fox News’ John Roberts — which is being described as “damage control” by the media.

“Rudy Giuliani told me that while reimbursed Cohen for the $130k SD payment, POTUS didn’t know what the money was used for. Giuliani says Cohen merely told the President he had “expenses” for which POTUS reimbursed him,” Roberts tweeted.

The payment is being described in the media as a “loan” because Trump reimbursed Cohen and anti-Trump forces insist it is related to his campaign, which will ensure wall-to-wall coverage.

But there’s so much vagueness in Giuliani’s revelation. In the end, it’s more likely to serve as another rabbit hole the president’s detractors will go chasing down in their quest to destroy him.
