    Former top FBI lawyer Lisa Page testified during two days of closed-door House hearings, revealing shocking new Intel against her old bosses at the Bureau, according the well-placed FBI sources. Alarming new details on allegations of a bureau-wide cover up. Or should we say another bureau-wide cover up. The embattled Page tossed James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Bill Priestap among others under the Congressional bus, alleging the upper echelon of the FBI concealed intelligence confirming Chinese state-backed ‘assets’ had illegally acquired former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 30,000+ “missing” emails, federal sources said. The Russians didn’t do it....

    Want to get a whole bunch of people to really, really care about climate change and rising sea levels? Tell them their internet is at risk. In a new study, researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and the University of Oregon found that thousands of miles of buried fiber optic cable are at risk of drowning under the rising seas. This isn’t something that will happen in the distant future, but could be a reality in just 15 years, the study suggests. Better backup your Tumblr. The peer-reviewed study combined data from the Internet Atlas, the map that keeps track...

    There is no way that POTUS, Trump could have made the alleged mistake at the Helsinki Press Conference with President Putin of the Russian Federation. What he has done, is to setup his Democrat & Media buffoons for a major political fall, with information passed onto to him by Vladmir Putin. Of course the Democrats and their lock-step media fell for it 100%. Today, Trump reworded his delivery from yesterday to a more favorable position for him. But, there is more to come. I believe, although I have no proof whatsoever, that Putin has fed Trump "Dynamite Facts" that lead...

    An "unhinged" Minnesota city council candidate is under investigation for posting a topless photo of his wife to his official campaign website in response to an order of protection she'd filed against him. In a now-deleted July 14 blog entry, David Martinez of St. Paul included the picture alongside a heated commentary on the couple's marital troubles and a copy of the restraining order cops had served him one day earlier. Martinez has a "history of restraining me physically against my wishes and forcing himself on me," his estranged wife wrote in the document, in which she requested — and...

    An Indiana woman and her girlfriend gave her son marijuana dozens of times in the last three months as a reward for the boy’s good behavior, court records stated. Susan Glascock and Melissa Burton, both 36, were charged with child neglect after the boy told police he was being rewarded with marijuana for his good behavior and had the drug taken away when he was behaving badly, FOX59 reported. Police began investigating the family on June 25 when officers responded to a disturbance at the home in Greenfield. Glascock was upset about the amount of money the boy and...

    Trump ignored staff advice before press conference with Putin President Donald Trump did the opposite of what his staff recommended ahead of his joint presser with Vladimir Putin, ignoring most of about 100 pages of briefing materials outlining a tough stance toward the Russian strongman, according to a report. Trump’s remarks during the 46-minute news conference in Helsinki, where he expressed skepticism about the US intelligence community’s findings that Russia meddled in the 2016 election, were “very much counter to the plan,” a source told the Washington Post.

    Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having...

    Our universe's rate of expansion keeps getting stranger. New data continues to show a discrepancy in how fast the universe expands in nearby realms and more distant locations.  The study's researchers said this "tension" could mean we need to revise our understanding of the physics structuring the universe, which could include exotic elements such as dark matter and dark energy. New measurements from the Hubble Space Telescope and the Gaia space telescope together showed that the rate of expansion nearby is 45.6 miles per second per megaparsec. This means that for every 3.3 million light-years a galaxy is farther away from...

    “You stood there like a little wet noodle, like a little fan boy,” Schwarzenegger said in a Twitter video directed at Trump. “I was asking myself when you are going to ask him for an autograph or a selfie or something like that.” Schwarzenegger in the 45-second video accuses Trump of attacking the intelligence community and the Justice Department by refusing to denounce Russian interference in the 2016 election. “You’re the president of the United States. You shouldn’t do that,” Schwarzenegger said. “What’s the matter with you?” Schwarzenegger, who was born in Austria, then questioned what happened to the “strong...

Never saw one till I was 15. All chips were plain. Oil was for lubricating, fat was for cooking. Tea was made in a teapot using tea leaves and never green. Cubed sugar was regarded as posh. Chickens didn't have fingers in those days. None of us had ever heard of yogurt. Healthy food consisted of anything edible! Cooking outside was called camping. Seaweed was not a recognized food.

  • Why does nobody asked this question about the Russian indictments?

    07/17/2018 7:01:19 AM PDT · by MNDude · 37 replies
    It seems as if everyone including so-called conservative voices are accepting the Russian indictments as valid. Why? We know that Mueller's Witch Hunt investigation consist mostly of radically devoted Democrats who have all donated huge sums of money to the Democrat Party. Does he his investigation have one Republican, or even one independent? After over a year, Mueller is finally indicted 12 Russians for hacking the Democrat server. They claim that the FBI nor anyone in the government was ever allowed to look at the Democrat server. So I am very curious to know how you can possibly have an...
