    On one level, the saga of Madame Giselle is a story about, in no particular order, allegations by two neighbors who say they were swindled in an elaborate scheme to sell T-shirts to the Venezuelan army, a cash-stuffed envelope slipped under a doorway, a legendary bygone scandal involving the Colombian military and a glamorous woman known as ďThe Blonde,Ē an ongoing multimillion-dollar Colombian fraud case, and a supposed helicopter ride into Syria. But on another level, as illustrated in interviews and in hundreds of text messages obtained by The Washington Post, itís a story about friendship and trust, about what...

  • Deep State Exclusive: Sessions Ordered Two Comey Memos; Rosenstein Won't Recuse (POTUS exonerated)

    06/19/2017 10:49:00 AM PDT · by drewh · 33 replies
    According to sources with links to the Justice Department and intelligence community, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was ordered by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, to write two separate memos regarding Director Comey; one that argued for Comeyís strengths as FBI Director and the second, which Sessions used in his obstruction of justice to fire Director Comey. This means that it is Jeff Sessions may be directly responsible for obstructing justice by misusing Rosensteinís pro and con Comey memos, and not Donald Trump. The Deputy Attorney General made a point of saying that even in his Ďnegativeí memo, he would not...

    A U.S. senator who took advantage of a loophole in ethics laws to avoid disclosing a $1.3 million credit line against her home is now warning that incomplete financial disclosures from cabinet nominees put the country at risk.Sen. Elizabeth Warrenís (D., Mass.) warning came in the Washington Post, where she wrote that ďit is critical that each nominee follows basic ethics rules to ensure that they will act for the benefit of all the American people.ĒWarren argued that financial disclosures are needed to ďreveal potentially damaging information that may undermine fitness to serveĒ and that nominees with ďcomplex financial historiesĒ...

    The lawyer for Jonathan Keith ''Jack'' Idema said Tuesday that he doesn't think Idema can get a fair trial in an Afghan court. Idema, who is from Fayetteville, has been held in an Afghan jail since his July 5 arrest on charges of kidnapping and torturing Afghan citizens. Two other Americans, Brent Bennett of Fayetteville and Ed Caraballo of New York, are being held with him. Idema has been identified as the leader of the group. He has said he and the others were hunting down terrorists. A hearing in a Kabul court for the three men was set to...

    Dear Donald Trump Fan, I'm going to tell you the truth, friend. You say you want the truth. You say you want someone who speaks boldly and brashly and bluntly and "tells it like it is" and so on. According to exit polls in South Carolina, voters who want a president who "tells it like it is" are an essential demographic for Trump, just as they're an essential demographic for Judge Judy and Dr. Phil. You say you want abrupt and matter-of-fact honesty, and you want it so much, you'll make a man president for it regardless of whether he...

    The FBI is investigating whether Hillary Clinton's State Department improperly directed contracts to Clinton Foundation donors, in possible violation of public corruption laws, Fox News is reporting. Three sources confirmed the previously-unknown investigation angle to Fox reporters Catherine Herridge and Pamela Browne. "The agents are investigating the possible intersection of Clinton Foundation donations, the dispensation of State Department contracts and whether regular processes were followed," one law enforcement source told Fox. Examples abound of Clinton’s State Department opening doors for Clinton Foundation donors, as well as to the then-secretary of state’s friends and political allies.

Incidentally, allow me to go on record now as predicting that Huckabee will endorse Marco Rubio once he drops out. ‚ÄúFor reasons I don‚Äôt fully understand, years and years of actually doing something and getting things done didn‚Äôt matter,‚ÄĚ Huckabee said of the group‚Äôs deliberations. ‚ÄĚAnd I don‚Äôt understand that.‚Ä̂Ķ Huckabee, according to sources, has often reminded [Tony] Perkins and his fellow influencers that a major reason he gave up his Fox News show and launched a 2016 campaign was because he expected to have their backing.

    Conman guilty of selling urine as whisky ē A British conman has been labelled ďa danger to public healthĒ and handed a suspended prison sentence after admitting to selling urine as whisky. Nicholas Stewart, 35, tricked holidaymakers in Blackpool into buying bottles of what appeared to be sealed, 1.5 litre bottles of Jack Danielís whiskey and Smirnoff vodka. Security staff seized the bottles Ė which were being sold at £10 each Ė after they noticed Stewart approaching tourists at the Coral Island slot machine complex. However, scientific analysis revealed that while some bottles contained flat cola, others contained urine and...

    Edward "Ed" Mezvinsky born January 17, 1937, is a former Democrat congressman. As a Democrat, he represented Iowa 's 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives for two terms, from 1973 to 1977. He sat on the House Judiciary Committee that decided the fate of Richard Nixon. He and the Clinton's were very politically intertwined for years. In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 charges of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. He was sentenced to 80 months in (Federal) prison. Ed Mezvinsky embezzled more than $10 million...

    Last night on FOX, Bill O'Reilly confronted his guest General Colin Powell with the October 4, 2012 quote by John Sununu that "Obama is lazy." In the discussion that followed, the always accurate 'Jeff Foxworthy definition style' of the Liberal Media-shunned four letter word "Lazy" was not used. Thus, to correct this oversight, we FREEPERS are duty bound to allow the TRUTH about Hussein O. to rise to the surface! For example, Hussein Obama might be LAZY if he did NOT send in any US Military help to stop the seven hour murder of the four heros in Benghazi.
  • Unskewed Polling' Creator Launches New Site On How Obama's Win Might Be Based On Voter Fraud

    Business Insider ^ | 11/21/2012 | Brett LoGiurato
    The creator of the so-called "Unskewed" Polling site is now unskewing the actual votes. Last week, Dean Chambers ó who admitted he was wrong about the polls shortly after the election ó launched BarackOFraudo.com, which attempts to expose "how they stole the election." Its premise centers on the admittedly eye-popping fact that Republican Mitt Romney received sometimes as little as zero votes in certain precincts in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Chambers also alleges that there are "questions" with how votes were counted in Florida and Virginia. You see where this is going ó without those four states, President Barack Obama has...

    "A step in the right direction." That's what Barack Obama said in Poland, Ohio, about Friday's Bureau of Labor Statistics unemployment report, which showed only 80,000 net new jobs and unemployment remaining at 8.2 percent. The thought will occur to many, not all of them Obama detractors, that this was at best a baby step. It's not enough to keep up with population growth, much less to restore the low unemployment rates of most of the 1990s and 2000s. Another thought will occur to professional amateur political strategists: Why did the president's campaign schedule a two-day bus tour of northern...

    NY Magazine ^ | November 3, 2011
    Mitt Romneyís problem with the Republican Party is not just that he previously held liberal positions on a wide-ranging array of issues. That can be explained away, at least a bit, as pandering necessary to win votes in a Democratic state. The deeper problem is that Romney was promising behind closed doors to act as essentially a sleeper agent within the Republican Party, adopting liberal stances, rising to national prominence, and thereby legitimizing them and transforming the Party from within. Todayís Washington Post has more detail: Mitt Romney was firm and direct with the abortion rights advocates sitting in his...

    President Obama drinks a Guinness in Hayes Bar in Moneygall, County Offaly, during his visit to Ireland (Photo: Press Association)What one has always to remember, in speeches delivered abroad by statesmen from any democratic country—but especially from America—is that for them their most important audience is back home. President Obama’s performance in the medieval splendours of Westminster Hall, it seems, didn’t go down all that well back in the US of A: his meeting with the Cambridges got more media attention. Certainly, his oratory has often been more compelling; after the jokiness and rabble-rousing of a lot of his speech...
