    Editor’s Note: Lawfare’s Board of Directors has published a post regarding this article and our editorial standards here. In the United States, the latest Iranian protests have sparked a kind of debate in which we argue fervently about whether the U.S. should tweet its support or just shut up. At the risk of making the Trump administration look moderate, I think we can choose between more than waving our hands and sitting on them. Remember, when the Iranian regime decided it didn’t like U.S. activities in Iraq, it found considerably more direct ways to express its disapproval. It just started...

    The Washington Post ^ | Saturday, December 23, 2017 | Devlin Barrett and Karoun Demirjian
    Andrew McCabe, the FBI’s deputy director who has been the target of Republican critics for more than a year, plans to retire in a few months when he becomes fully eligible for pension benefits, according to people familiar with the matter. McCabe spent hours in Congress this past week, facing questions behind closed doors from members of three committees. Republicans said they were dissatisfied with his answers; Democrats called it a partisan hounding. McCabe, 49, holds a unique position in the political firestorm surrounding the FBI. He was former director James B. Comey’s right-hand man, a position that involved him...

    The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about Donald Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, people familiar with the matter said. Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research. Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community. Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the firm in April 2016 on behalf...

    Media Equalizer ^ | Saturday, July 15, 2017 | Melanie Morgan
    Unlike some, at least we don’t use witchcraft to get our point across! In years past, the alt-Left has resorted to using spells, pointy hats and rituals as a protest tactic. On Saturday, July 22 at noon, a group of ordinary Americans will be flocking to Atlanta. With our placards, megaphones and passion for the truth, we’ll gather in front of CNN World Headquarters. We’ll promise to leave the eye-of-newt and toe-of-frog at home, however! StopTheScalpings and The Media Equality Project are joining with Mainstreet Patriots by hitting CNN in “their house”. Why are we taking this extraordinary step? Simply...

    The Washington Times ^ | Friday June 2, 2017 | S.A. Miller
    President Trump’s supporters plan to hold a “Pittsburgh Not Paris” rally Saturday in front of the White House to demonstrate support for his decision to pull out of the Paris climate change agreement, countering expected protests by Democrats and liberal activists. The rally, named after Mr. Trump’s remark about representing “citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris” when announcing he was ripping up the Obama-era agreement, was organized by the Republican Party of Fairfax Country, Virginia, in the D.C. suburbs. The Trump campaign urged the president’s supporters in the area to attend the event Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon across from...

    FReeper fave Blazing Saddles is airing tonight on Turner Classic Movies at 10:30 p.m. EST. This FR thread from 2015 posited that Blazing Saddles could not be made today due to political correctness.Fortunately in 1974 Mel Brooks, Richard Pryor, Gene Wilder, Cleavon Little, Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman, Slim Pickens, Alex Karras, et al, were still free to make this comedy classic.The showing of Blazing Saddles is part of TCM's 31 Days of Oscar A to Z which started Wednesday.TCM airs films unedited, so all the jokes should be heard/seen.

    White House 'We the People' Petitions ^ | Thursday, January 5, 2017 | Kristinn
    A white disabled man was seen on live video Tuesday, January 3, 2017, being tied up, beaten and tortured by a group of Black people in Chicago. The attackers, among other acts, forced the victim to drink water out of a toilet bowl and cursed President-elect Trump. It is imperative for President Obama, as a Chicago native and the nation's first Black president, to strongly speak out and denounce this attack and to take responsibility for the cesspool of hatred and violence his hometown has become during his presidency. Video and details of the attack can be seen at this...

    While driving away from the Trump rally at the Central Florida Fairgrounds in Orlando Wednesday evening, I drove though miles of Black neighborhoods trying to find my way back to the RT 408 toll road.One thing that struck me after I drove for a half-hour in stop-and-go traffic in all--and I do mean all-Black neighborhoods finally ending up at the John Young Parkway was that there was not one 'Hillary Clinton for president' sign to be seen anywhere.One would never know a hard-fought presidential election was in its closing days by driving through those Orlando neighborhoods. There were not any...

    The Daily Beast ^ | Thursday, August 4, 2016 | Katie Zavadski
    Days before an ISIS sympathizer attacked a cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, he received a text from an undercover FBI agent. “Tear up Texas,” the agent messaged Elton Simpson days before he opened fire at the Draw Muhammad event, according to an affidavit (pdf) filed in federal court Thursday. “U know what happened in Paris,” Simpson responded. “So that goes without saying… No need to be direct.” That revelation comes amidst a national debate about the use of undercover officers and human sources in terrorism cases. Undercover sources are used in more than half of ISIS-related terror cases, according to...

    New Bedford leaders are livid at Hillary Clinton’s depiction of the Whaling City as a place where handicapped children were abandoned at home because the schools lacked accommodations for youngsters with special needs. “It’s not true,” former Mayor Jack Markey told the Herald yesterday. “I’m even a Democrat, but the truth is the truth. “We would take handicapped kids in a small van to schools that could take them,” said Markey, who served on a local board that helped disabled children before he was elected mayor in 1971. “I would have been aware of a child needing help to go...

    Donald Trump has asked why I did not speak at the Democratic convention. He said he would like to hear from me. Here is my answer to Donald Trump: Because without saying a thing, all the world, all America, felt my pain. I am a Gold Star mother. Whoever saw me felt me in their heart. Donald Trump said I had nothing to say. I do. My son Humayun Khan, an Army captain, died 12 years ago in Iraq. He loved America, where we moved when he was 2 years old. He had volunteered to help his country, signing up...
