  • Strzok-Page Emails Reveal Disturbing Look at Early Mueller Investigation (Vanity)

    Yesterday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, released a majority staff report titled “The Clinton Email Scandal And The FBI’s Investigation Of It,” along with over 500 pages of text messages between agent Peter Strzok, formerly the Deputy Assistant Director of the FBI's Counterintelligence Division, and FBI attorney Lisa Page. Many of the text messages have not been released previously. One aspect of the newly released texts that has not received any media attention is the overwhelming number of texts that deal with Page and Strzok's comments on and numerous contacts...
  • Aaron Hernandez may have committed murder to cover up a shocking secret

    04/21/2017 2:25:06 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 40 replies
    Aaron Hernandez may have murdered Odin Lloyd to keep his own bisexuality a secret, according a report Friday that also said one of his suicide notes was addressed to a gay jailhouse lover. “One of the notes left by Hernandez was to his prison boyfriend, who is now on 24/7 suicide watch, multiple law enforcement sources confirm,” Newsweek reported. Hernandez’s sexuality had also played a role in the murder for which the disgraced Patriot tight end was serving life without parole in the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center, the report said. Hernandez may have fatally shot his old pal, Odin Lloyd,...
  • Aaron Schock asks judge to dismiss criminal indictment

    04/20/2017 1:50:10 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 5 replies
    WASHINGTON – Former Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Ill., on Thursday asked a judge in Springfield to dismiss his federal corruption charges, asserting the prosecutor crossed a line by violating separation of power provisions in the Constitution. “The wide-ranging Indictment against Mr. Schock repeatedly trespasses on land the Constitution reserves for Congress. The Indictment repeatedly relies on House rules or standards that were not designed to be the basis for criminal charges and are themselves ambiguous,” Schock’s motion to dismiss argues. Moreover, the motion states: “The relevant rules are simply not as represented in the Indictment; and are, in fact, inherently ambiguous...
  • Turkey’s Ruling Party Official Hails The Antichrist Saying To “Get Ready For Erdogan’s Caliphate”

    These guys are not kidding. And the media is also going ballistics (see Washington Post, The Jerusalem Post and Turkish Today’s Zaman, also here). The media explosion started when the head of a provincial branch of Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) has stirred the pot by tweeting that the country should “get ready for the caliphate” of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. A caliph is a spiritual leader of Islam who claims succession from Prophet Muhammad. The word, stemming from the Arabic khalifa meaning “successor,” has been the focus of much debate since being claimed by the Islamic State...
  • Schock in limbo as feds still loom

    One year after resigning in disgrace, Aaron Schock — the high-flying GOP congressman whose penchant for drawing publicity to himself was nearly unrivaled in the House of Representatives — has largely disappeared from view. But federal prosecutors still have their sights on him. There have been a few random glimpses of the Illinois Republican since his abrupt departure from Capitol Hill: having dinner with his father in Peru last summer, and snowboarding with a friend in Aspen, Colorado, in February. Just this month, Schock was seen lugging his gym bag outside the Longworth House Office Building. Sources say he is...

    ERRIADH, TUNISIA // In 586BC the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar laid waste to Jerusalem, inadvertently sowing seeds for a Jewish haven across the sea that has outlived his realm by 25 centuries and counting. Legend tells that refugees fled to the Tunisian island of Djerba, carrying a block from the ruined Temple of Solomon. Today it lies beneath the El Ghriba synagogue, the cornerstone of a thriving Jewish community. And after decades of Jewish exodus from Arab countries, that community is growing. For western holidaymakers, Djerba is a strip of lavish resorts along a sandy Mediterranean coast. For Tunisians, it also...

    Algemeiner ^ | 6-4-15
    Egypt’s National Center for Translation has just released an Arabic translation of the Torah. To be precise, they converted Rav Saadia Gaon’s 10th century translation of the Torah to Judeo-Arabic into Arabic itself. (Judeo-Arabic is mostly Arabic with Hebrew letters.) The Egyptian scholars who published the book emphasize that R’ Saadia was born in Egypt (in Fayoum, identified by R’ Saadia himself as the Biblical Pitom), and that his philosophy and translations were heavily influenced by Islam. They even claim that he borrows Quranic texts in some of his translations to Arabic. They don’t emphasize that R’ Saadia moved to...

    UPDATE 1x: State Rep. Mike Unes released the following statement: “It easy to kick a person when they’re down, but I’ve always strived to help a person up. I have reached out and offered my support to my friend, Congressman Schock. Obviously, this is a sad and disappointing day for Central Illinois. It’s unfortunate to have to address this issue so quickly following the announcement, but I have heard from a number of community leaders urging me to seek this position in the coming special election.

    Conventional biblical scholars tentatively position Moses during the Ancient Egyptian New Kingdom reign of Ramses II. Not much evidence supports this view. However, the Egyptian Twelfth Dynasty stories provide so many details which match the Exodus details, that these coincidences strongly suggest that both sources are describing the same events...

    After a contentious court hearing with convicted bomber Brett Kimberlin, conservative blogger Aaron Walker was taken into custody, The Blaze reported Tuesday. [snip] In 1981, Kimberlin was sentenced to 50 years in federal prison for a long list of crimes, including the 1978 terrorist bombing that brutally maimed Vietnam veteran Carl DeLong. He served 17 years in prison before being released. Since then, he has become a liberal activist whose work has been funded in part, by George Soros' Tides Foundation, Barbra Streisand and Teresa Heinz Kerry. On May 25, The Blaze published a lengthy expose on Kimberlin, detailing his...

    This is a breaking story. Please check back frequently for updates. UPDATE I: The Blaze spoke to a clerk at the District Court of Maryland for Montgomery County who confirmed that Aaron Walker was in fact arrested following his hearing with Brett Kimberlin. According to the clerk, he was arrested on second degree assault charges that were previously filed by Kimberlin when Walker, following a separate court hearing, took and held at bay Kimberlin’s iPad. Other reports on the web indicate that Walker was instead arrested for violating the “peace order” for which he was appearing in court. Walker laid...

    A few curious facts for the new to Elvis: Elvis Aaron Presley was born January 8, 1935 in a little house in Tupelo, Mississippi. He had a stillborn brother Jesse Garon Presley. There was no doctor yet present during the birth and Elvis' parents put him in a shoebox in the oven to keep him warm. His real hair color as an adult was dark blond. His eyes were extremely blue.He was shockingly different for the 50's and stunningly talented: Heartbreak Hotel Elvis was one of the most beautiful (I would argue THE most beautiful person) ever photographed.

    In the Old Testament tabernacle, a copy of the temple in heaven, the sanctuary was covered with curtains. To the left of the sanctuary entrance was a piece of equipment used to illuminate it, the gold lampstand. According to the pattern God gave Moses on Mt. Sinai, the shaft, branches, bowls, ornamental knobs and flowers of this lampstand were hammered from one gold piece. The center shaft was flanked by three branches decorated with almond blossoms on either side, all seven branches topped by little bowl-lamps containing olive oil. Inside the holy place (the sanctuary) but outside the curtain veiling...

    Red Bull gives you rotors? So what makes pilot Charles "Chuck" Aaron's airshow act so special? Well, all you had to do was watch his HELI-AEROBATIC act at Oshkosh to know that something SERIOUSLY DIFFERENT had come to Wittman Field. The Red Bull BO-105 CBS, made by Eurocopter/Messerschmitt Boelkow Blohm (MBB), blew everyone away with a routine rarely seen anywhere, much less at world-class airshow like Oshkosh.

    I don't do prayer requests very well, but a dear friend of ours needs one. Their grandson has a Schwannoma tumor on the vagus nerve and will be undergoing surgery on July 25. Their Dr. wants to remove it before it grows into the brain stem or chest area. This is a very rare tumor for an adult to have let alone a child. There have only been a handful of these surgeries done. They will not know until they get inside if this growth is on the side of the nerve or surrounding the mass. Please Pray for Aaron,...

    There's no denying 756 home runs, and if Selig wants to try, he'd better examine the rest of baseball history Baseball's most cherished record now belongs to Barry Bonds, and no matter what is said, written or alleged, there is no taking it away. Teeing off on a 3-2 pitch from Washington Nationals left-hander Mike Bacsik, Bonds launched his 756th career home run to the deepest part of AT&T Park on Tuesday night. The instant the ball left his bat and sizzled toward right-center field, there was no doubt the San Francisco Giants' controversial slugger had just elbowed his way...
