  • James Comey: Fall of the legend

    Power Line ^ | June 20, 2018 | Paul Mirengoff
    Byron York describes the fall of James Comey. Byron notes that Comey, who presents himself as the Last Honest Man, is now under investigation for possibly mishandling classified and confidential information in his apparently all-consuming desire to get Trump. The view of Comey as the Last Honest Man was widely shared by mainstream media and among liberals after he faced down top representatives of the Bush administration in that dramatic encounter at the hospital bed of then-Attorney General Ashcroft. And during the 1990s the view of Comey as a man of integrity, though not the last such man, was almost...
  • Beer may lack fizz in Europe amid carbon dioxide shortage

    LONDON (AP) — No beer at this time of year? A British trade group says there’s a shortage of carbon dioxide in Northern Europe, sparking fears that drinks may lack fizz just as thirsty soccer fans fill pubs for the World Cup. Gavin Partington, director-general of the British Soft Drinks Association, says the shortage is due to the closure of several production sites for various reasons, including seasonal maintenance. But industry publication Gasworld says the situation is worse this year because normal maintenance has coincided with technical issues at chemical plants that also produce carbon dioxide.
  • Mueller Has Strzok Out

    American Spectator ^ | June 20, 2018 | George Neumayr
    The other night MSNBC ran a fawning documentary about James Comey. It was full of howlers about the unfathomable depths of his “integrity.” None of the clips age well, but one in particular captured the utter lunacy of Comey serving as Mueller’s presumed chief witness — a clip in which Comey accuses Trump of “lies, plain and simple” for describing the FBI as “poorly led” and in “disarray.” Here is a former FBI director categorizing Trump’s opinion, and a manifestly correct one at that, as “lies.” That’s the fatuous, un-rigorous level on which Mueller’s probe is proceeding. His forthcoming report...
  • Veep Mike Pence campaigned for Scott Wagner in Philly. A Philly lawmaker gave him the finger

    With national attention focused on the forced separation of families at America's southern border, this week isn't a very good week to be a Trump administration official (not that most are, of course). So it's not surprising that Veep Mike Pence was greeted by vocal protests when he swung through Philadelphia on Tuesday night to campaign on behalf of Republican governor candidate Scott Wagner. Some, such as state Rep. Brian Sims, D-Philadelphia, were slightly more emphatic in their opposition.
  • Far right reorganising for Tommy Robinson protests, say activists

    Guardian ^ | 20/6/18
    The far right in the UK is mobilising itself around protests over the imprisonment of the former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson, a group of MPs, union leaders and political activists have said. In a letter to the Guardian, they say a violent 15,000-strong far-right protest in support of Robinson in central London on 9 June raised concerns for those who value diversity. “The racist right are using Robinson to reorganise,” the letter says. It says Nazi salutes and Islamophobia were central features of the protest. At one point demonstrators chased police through the streets of Whitehall. “This is...

    THE man claiming to be Bill Clinton’s “love child” has hit out at the former President, accusing him of hypocrisy over America's immigration row. Danney Williams, 32, accused the ex-leader of double standards by showing sympathy for migrant kids separated from their parents at the US border but "abandoning his own son". Williams claims his mum Bobbie Ann, a former prostitute, became pregnant with him after meeting Clinton in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1984 and had a total of 13 trysts with the then state governor. Clinton married Hillary in 1975. The father-of-five has repeatedly called for Clinton to publicly...

    "If a man comes into your assembly with a gold ring and dressed in fine clothes, and there also comes in a poor man in dirty clothes, and you pay special attention to the one who is wearing the fine clothes, and say, 'You sit here in a good place,' and you say to the poor man, 'You stand over there, or sit down by my footstool,' have you not made distinctions among yourselves, and become judges with evil motives?" (James 2:2-4). Favoritism is motivated by an evil desire to gain some advantage for yourself. The story is told of...

    “Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the door of the furnace of blazing fire; he responded and said, ‘Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego, come out, you servants of the Most High God, and come here!’ Then Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego came out of the midst of the fire. And the satraps, the prefects, the governors and the king’s high officials gathered around and saw in regard to these men that the fire had no effect on the bodies of these men nor was the hair of their head singed, nor were their trousers damaged, nor had the smell of fire even come...

    I’m going to relay a one-time experience I had with Zen meditation when I was in my early 20’s. I didn’t need to visit Japan for this experience: Zen came to me in the form of a 2-day weekend retreat held in San Diego.  The event was held in a large two-or-three floor neighborhood house facing out on lovely Balboa Park with its large trees.   I gained much from this meditation retreat, and I would definitely encourage others to give it a go.   Before attending this retreat, I’d read that it may take a Zen monk many years to...

    I thought white people were evil. I was wrong. Whenever anyone mentions the historical atrocity of chattel slavery, white people will emerge from the dark crevices of humanity to gnaw away at the assertion like roaches on a discarded Cheeto. They will explain how most white people didn’t own slaves. They will offer a convoluted explanation about the Confederacy and Southern heritage. They will introduce the concept of “presentism”—the idea that we shouldn’t judge the actions of people in the past using modern-day standards—as if the white people of the past couldn’t quite grasp the idea of inhumanity and brutality...

    The Washington Times ^ | June 20, 2018 | Jeff Mordock
    The publisher of the National Enquirer has been subpoenaed for financial records in the Michael Cohen probe, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday evening. According to the Journal, Manhattan federal prosecutors are interested in the Enquirer’s payment of $150,000 to former Playboy model Karen McDougal. Citing “people familiar with the matter,” prosecutors in the Cohen case are investigating whether the payment for the rights to her story about a purported affair with then-TV star Donald Trump constitutes a campaign-finance law violation. The National Enquirer never ran the story, prompting speculation that Mr. Cohen, with the cooperation of Enquirer publisher American...

    It's not unusual for a writer to dedicate a book to their parents - but for Garrard Conley to have dedicated Boy Erased to his mother and father and thanked them in the acknowledgements is more surprising, given that it is all about what they put him through. They are the ones who told him he had to go through "gay conversion therapy" or leave the family forever. Conley had been outed to his parents by his rapist after being assaulted in college. But, to his Baptist preacher father and his mother, the crime was in him being gay. They...

    Police shot and killed an unarmed teen who ran away from a traffic stop Tuesday night in East Pittsburgh, authorities said. Authorities identified the dead teen as 17-year-old Antwon Rose, a Woodland Hills High School student who district officials said was one English class shy of graduating. He had been riding in a car linked to a non-fatal shooting 13 minutes earlier on North Braddock's Kirkpatrick Avenue, according to Allegheny County police. A 22-year-old man wounded in the North Braddock shooting was treated and released from a hospital. The deadly shooting in East Pittsburgh happened at 8:40 after borough police...
