  • Comey’s False Presidential Handshake Claim

    What is the first thing you notice by looking at that film? If you’re like most people, you notice that James Comey is about a foot taller than anyone else in that entire room. Let’s be honest here: If the Director of the FBI really believed that, by wearing a blazer that is similar in color to the curtains in that room, he was going to avoid attracting attention from the President or anyone else, he is obviously too damned dim-witted to be the FBI Director, and needed firing for that reason alone. Now take a look at the photo...

    SEOUL: North Korea accused the United States on Tuesday of pushing the Korean peninsula to the brink of nuclear war after a pair of strategic U.S. bombers flew training drills with the South Korean and Japanese air forces in another show of strength. The two supersonic B-1B Lancer bombers were deployed amid rising tensions over North Korea's dogged pursuit of its nuclear and missile programmes in defiance of United Nations sactions and pressure from the United States. The flights of the two bombers on Monday came as U.S. President Donald Trump said he was open to meeting North Korean leader...

    One of the course designers, Doreen Bradley, director of learning programs and initiatives at the U-M Library, says misinformation, disinformation, half-truths and propaganda have always been around, but are these days so readily sharable that students encounter a much greater volume than ever before. Students taking the class will: •Learn how to find trusted sources of statistics. •Be challenged to confront their own biases. •Consider how their opinions, and the opinions of others, can affect the interpretation of news items. •Practice dissecting a news graph in order to understand the message that graph is trying to convey. •Assess how their...
  • Comey to Trump: The Russians Didn’t Influence the Election

    Townhall.com ^ | December 14 | Ed Klein
    In telephone conversations with Donald Trump, FBI Director James Comey assured the president-elect there was no credible evidence that Russia influenced the outcome of the recent U.S. presidential election by hacking the Democratic National Committee and the e-mails of John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. What’s more, Comey told Trump that James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, agreed with this FBI assessment. The only member of the U.S. intelligence community who was ready to assert that the Russians sanctioned the hacking was John Brennan, the director of the CIA, according to sources who were briefed...

    Remember when the liberals demanded that Donald Trump swear to accept the outcome of the presidential election? That was two months ago, when they were sure Trump would lose in a landslide. Now many of the same people are chanting that Trump is “not my president.” In the days following the November election, thousands of anarchists participated in often violent protests in places like Oakland, California and Portland, Oregon, setting fire to police cars, smashing plate glass windows, and waving Mexican flags to express their contempt for the will of the American people. Remember when the liberals complained that...
  • THE CIA MOVES TO INVALIDATE U.S. PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS BY BLAMING RUSSIAN HACKING

    Zero Hedge ^ | 12/10/16
    It's happening. After careful analysis of all the media punditry and the 'leaks' coming out from the CIA, I can only conclude that there is a concerted effort taking place to invalidate the U.S. elections, in an effort to unseat Donald Trump. Last night the Washington Post reported a leak from inside the CIA, saying they had a report that showed evidence that Russia hacked the elections in order to elect Donald Trump. They're being very specific about that point. Pay attention.   Source: Reuters The CIA has concluded that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help President-elect...

    We sympathize with those voters who feel locked out of a political system that seems closed-off, self interested and remote. We hear every week from readers who feel Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is their best chance to demolish a crony system that isn’t even interested in their concerns, much less committed to addressing them. These are two, distinct issues to consider, even though in the heat of the moment they might seem of a piece. First, yes: Many of us are so removed from the workings of the federal government that we don’t even know where to begin to...

    Hillary Clinton says she's always tried to be honest and doesn't believe she ever told a lie to the American people. “Well, I have to tell you, I have tried in every way I know how, literally from my years as a young lawyer all the way through my time as secretary of State, to level with the American people,” the presidential contender told CBS in an interview Thursday, when asked if she was always truthful with the public. “I’ve always tried to. Always. Always,” she added.

    A "devastated" Hillary Rodham Clinton worked late into the night on Sept. 11, 2012, trying to protect her people caught in an attack on a diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, that ultimately killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans, a close Clinton aide said in testimony released Wednesday. But the former secretary of state was "deeply engaged" in ensuring the others made it home, added Cheryl Mills, Clinton's former chief of staff, who spoke to the GOP-led House Benghazi committee last month. Democrats on the committee released the full, 307-page transcript of Mills' remarks a day ahead of Clinton's...

    I have never been asked the type of questions I’m now fielding from white people – and I’m not the only one.Donald Trump’s hate speech against Latinos seems to be emboldening white Americans’ racism. For many, it may be hard to wrap their minds around the fact that that a reality TV star and failed businessman who characterized Mexican immigrants as the “most unwanted people,” calling them “criminals, drug dealers,” and “rapists”, was not only running for president, but is now polling well. I can’t say I’m surprised. A couple of weeks ago, while I was running errands in my...

    Mark Twain wrote with enormous sentiment about a great patriotic movement, as “a fluttering wilderness of flags flashed in the sun.”  Thus is the receiving line of the disaffected for Donald Trump, of whom legend and song shall be duly recorded in history. Leading in the polls, standing tall above all the other GOP candidates, indeed above Her Majesty Hillary Clinton, whose shine has turned to a patina in the manner of copper left in the rain, Trump’s supporters wax heroic about their leader, ready to defend him with their honor for the glory to come. Then home from the war, bronzed heroes,...

    Former Florida governor and potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said that although his pro-immigration views are not in line with his party’s base, he’s “not going to back down” on the country’s “immigration problem.” Speaking Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Bush said he’s “not going to back down” on immigration, insisting the country has an immigration problem and needs a path for illegal aliens “I think we have immigration problem,” said Bush. “It’s a system that’s broken. The legal system is broken. We need to narrow family petitioning expand economic immigrants. We need to enforce the law....

Obama said, “I would have told myself to anticipate because the recession was so bad and so tough for so many people, that I was going to have to be more aggressive in explaining to the public how long it was going to take for the recovery to...

You can file this report as conspiracy if needed but it is more suitably filed as accumulation of unexplained Fed action for future analysis.

One question for which I have affirmative answers is can the federal government move in on oil and gas drillers and takeover at any time declaring any oil...

Some of what I’ve learned is classified, some is unclassified but what I can tell you is that there are many nations who are committed to support the...

Kicking off four days of talks in an East Asia beset by increasing North Korean threats, Kerry told reporters in Seoul that Pyongyang and its enigmatic young leader would only increase their isolation if they launched the missile...

    There have been shows on toddler beauty pageants, raising multiples, and children living with other peoples’ wives. But now, a pair of producers is hoping to feature children who have lived past lives. Hoping to find children who ‘have inexplicable memories and experiences of another life,’ the producers insist that past-life memories are real and somewhat common. Speaking with the Huffington Post, husband-and-wife producers Joke Fincioen and Biagio Messina hope to find children, aged 2-10, who have inexplicable memories that seem to be from past lives. ‘We wanted to tell these parents’ stories without trying to prove or disprove them.’...
