  • Trump Jr. Was Told in Email of Russian Effort to Aid Campaign

    WASHINGTON — Before arranging a meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer he believed would offer him compromising information about Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump Jr. was informed in an email that the material was part of a Russian government effort to aid his father’s candidacy, according to three people with knowledge of the email. The email to the younger Mr. Trump was sent by Rob Goldstone, a publicist and former British tabloid reporter who helped broker the June 2016 meeting. In a statement on Sunday, Mr. Trump acknowledged that he was interested in receiving damaging information about Mrs. Clinton, but gave...
  • Robert Spencer Poisoned After Giving Anti-Jihad Speech in Iceland

    After I spoke last Thursday in the beautiful nation of Iceland, a Leftist in Reykjavik poisoned me. Perhaps I should have seen it coming. The international Left has rejected free speech, and has embraced violence as a suitable response to speech contradicting its narrative. My visit triggered a firestorm of abuse in the Icelandic press, all of which was based on American Leftist talking points. Every story about my visit used the same elements. For example, that the Southern Poverty Law Center claims I purvey “hate speech,” which is a subjective judgment used to shut down dissent from the establishment...

    Today, Tuesday 7 March 2017, WikiLeaks begins its new series of leaks on the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Code-named "Vault 7" by WikiLeaks, it is the largest ever publication of confidential documents on the agency. The first full part of the series, "Year Zero", comprises 8,761 documents and files from an isolated, high-security network situated inside the CIA's Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virgina. It follows an introductory disclosure last month of CIA targeting French political parties and candidates in the lead up to the 2012 presidential election. Recently, the CIA lost control of the majority of its hacking...

    Ok, folks, I've had enough of Ted Cruz and a handful of others trying to fundraise on the back of the Internet handover issue.First, this is not a surprise nor something Obama cooked up in the dead of night.  The expiration of the existing arrangement has been known for literal years and the timing of same has been known for the same amount of time.  If the US Congress wanted to intervene it has had years to do so and has intentionally not done so.  So to Ted Cruz and others (Jim DeMint anyone?) who is now claiming "emergency", go perform an anatomically-impossible act; if you...
  • What I've Learned: Jorge Ramos (On Donald Trump)

    Esquire ^ | 7/6/2016 | Cal Fussman
    For years, Jorge Ramos has been the face of Univision, America's most influential Spanish-language news channel. Although seen by millions of people, for a time he was largely unknown to just as many. But then he stood up to Donald Trump, further solidifying himself as the voice of Latino voters. He also does a show for millennial viewers on Fusion, which broadens his base. It's been a long journey for the fifty-eight-year-old, who came to America as an immigrant and, as he says here, is inspired by de Tocqueville. I learned very early on that I had to question everything,...

Midtown Manhattan never truly sleeps, particularly just before a Monday morning, but compared to what it would be like in a couple of hours, it was geared way down. No tourists yet, mostly delivery trucks and vans. All lanes were northbound, because it was 6th Avenue.Mike was showered and clean shaven, every item on him and in his possession carefully considered. The white hard hat...

    CBS Baltimore ^ | 05/23/2016 | News wire
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Freddie Gray arresting officer Edward Nero has been found not guilty on all counts by Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams. Nero faced charges of second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and two counts of misconduct in office. Nero waived his right to a trial by jury. His bench trial began May 12 and final arguments were heard Thursday. Gray, a 25-year-old black man from the Sandtown area of Baltimore, died on April 19, 2015 of a spinal cord injury he sustained while in police custody. His death set off more than a week of protests followed by...

  • Battery? Only IF Fields Is Charged (On Corey Lewandowski's misdemeanor)

    The Market Ticker ^ | 03/29/2016 | Karl Denninger
    Yep....Fields has managed to get Lewandowski charged with misdemeanor battery, which under the law is simply an "unwanted touching."  The charge is usually leveled when someone commits a fairly-egregious act of "touching" (like punching you) but does not cause great injury in doing so.  That is, while the letter of the law may be met here the clear intent is most-definitely not.Never mind the better question: who was initiating the touching?Second, there is apparently a member of Trump's Secret Service detail that has confirmed that Fields touched Trump twice before Lewandowski intervened and Fields was warned to stop doing so, which she ignored.Further, the video I've seen doesn't clearly support the charge and the...

    The lies are coming fast and furious.... A former strategist for a pro-Donald Trump Super PAC claimed in a shocking column that even the GOP front-runner himself was surprised at his electoral success and never had any real intention of being President. BY LAW a SuperPac cannot have any contact or coordination with a candidate.  To do so is a violation of Federal Law by the SuperPac, so if Stephanie Cegielski is alleging this she is admitting to the commission of a federal offense.Second, this SuperPac was shut down last year.  Why?  Because Trump insisted that it shut down as it was both using his slogan and...

    I am increasingly liking this guy. Following Friday night’s unrest in Chicago before one his rallies, Trump was met with protests and countless interruptions in Ohio and Missouri.“I hope they arrest these people, because honestly they should be,” Trump said to cheers from the crowd. “The only way to stop the craziness is to press charges.” Excellent.I know, you'll call me a racist or some other sort of name.  You're the racist, however, if you do.Let me explain and hopefully your blood pressure will return to normal -- and you'll see why Trump is the only choice for President, because he believes...

    Yesterday there was a protest while Trump was speaking in St. Louis, and then again in Chicago; the latter prompting Trump to cancel his campaign rally.Trump did the right thing.  But folks, if you're on the fence, or anything other than a supporter of both communism and terrorism, you cannot stand for what happened yesterday.These people weren't "protesting", they were attempting to denying a man's First Amendment right to speak by threatening violence.In St. Louis this featured at least one man stomping a flag while wearing a "**** the police" t-shirt.In Chicago there were many Mexican flags flown, including some being worn as clothing, among...

    Cruz picked up essentially the entire Bush clan into his campaign recently.Including, I remind you, one Bush (Neil) that managed to rip off the taxpayer for a billion and a half dollars during the S&L crash, and who did it by giving "loans" to his friends that were uncollectable.  Look up Silverado Savings and Loan out of Denver.  It was one of the big scandals of the time, and that a director, Neil Bush, is now on the Cruz campaign's finance team ought to tell you everything you need to know.Oh, it didn't stop there either.  You might want to look into his connections to...

    There is much digital ink being spewed this morning about Trump being "out of control" at the debate last night.Well, guess what -- there's a point where righteous anger reaches its boiling point, and perhaps Trump got there last evening.  It wasn't just stacked audiences and "enhanced" audio sound effects.  It was also the other candidates, including Cruz in particular, who flat-out lied about his position when it came to Chief Justice Roberts.He said he'd "never nominate him", but in point of fact he wrote an op-ed strongly supporting and praising him for a magazine of national circulation, National Review, when Roberts was up...

    There's a clean question on the table regarding dual citizenship for persons born in Canada prior to 1977 (when they changed their law to officially recognize dual nationality.) Prior to that date, with few exceptions, you could not hold dual nationality with Canada. In other words the very act of "renouncing" Canadian Citizenship means that Cruz never held US citizenship at birth because his parents had to declare his nationality at the time he was born. There may be exceptions that were available at the time but the law now is immaterial. The only material fact is what the law...

    Col. Don Christensen, the chief prosecutor of the United States Air Force, sat in economy class on a flight to Venice and studied the folder of the sexual-assault case that would ultimately end his career. It was August 2012, and he was en route to Aviano Air Base to try a court-martial. Looking over the case, he could see why the judge advocate general, or JAG, at the base had requested him. Christensen had prosecuted more sexual-assault courts-martial than any other lawyer in the Air Force, and this case called for someone with experience. There would most likely be generals...

    Folks, if you have read me recently you know that I've said that you are the problem and that the reason this is true is that you won't go on strike, you won't picket DC and refuse to leave until the government stops stealing from you and debasing the currency, you won't reduce your spending and income to only that which provides necessities, and most of you go on to justify your behavior with "my kids (and/or family) deserve what I can provide."You're fools and I'm going to prove it.  Further, I'm going to prove -- by arithmetic -- that if...
  • Anti-LGBTQ group admits it lied about transgender student “harassing” classmates

    Last week, anti-LGBTQ group the Pacific Justice Institute started a conservative media firestorm with its claim that a transgender teenager in Colorado was “harassing” her classmates in the girls’ bathroom. The allegations, after being picked up by Fox News and other right-wing media outlets, were quickly debunked by a transgender advocacy group that reached out to the school’s superintendent, who explained that no harassment had occurred. In reality, the complaint stemmed from one area mother who objected to the school’s policy allowing transgender students to use facilities that correspond to their gender identity. After having its lie exposed, PJI issued...
