    "Comey said in early June 2003 when announcing the charges. "Martha Stewart is being prosecuted not for who she is, but because of what she did." For her part, Stewart has said she believed Comey was making an example out of her because of her fame. "I'm sure I was an example," she told TMZ's Harvey Levin in an October 2017 episode of Fox's OBJECTified. "And that's it."" snip-- "The charges Comey brought against Stewart related more to what prosecutors alleged was a cover-up than the stock trade itself. According to the New York Times, Comey claimed he could have...
  • Branch Davidian tragedy sparked government suspicion that still haunts us 25 years later

    WACO — The fire rose above the Texas prairie like a portent, an inferno consuming David Koresh and more than 70 of his followers in the Branch Davidian compound. Koresh's personal apocalypse was televised live worldwide just after noon on April 19, 1993. Questions about what went wrong began to mount before the ashes were cool. How could a 33-year-old ninth-grade dropout convince so many people that he was the Lamb and God had willed this terrible end - nurses and teachers, a postman and a Harvard-educated lawyer, Australians and Brits, New Zealanders and an Argentinian-born Israeli Jew? Above all,...

    Facebook's apology-and-explanation machine grinds on, with The Social Network™ posting detail on one of its most controversial activities – how it tracks people who don't use Facebook. The company explained that the post is a partial response to questions CEO Mark Zuckerberg was unable to answer during his senate and Congressional hearings. It's no real surprise that someone using their Facebook Login to sign in to other sites is tracked, but the post by product management director David Baser goes into (a little) detail on other tracking activities – some of which have been known to the outside world for...

    The Trump administration intends to transfer a U.S. citizen held in Iraq as an enemy combatant for over six months to an unnamed foreign country within 72 hours, it revealed in a court filing on Tuesday afternoon. The detainee has declined to consent to the transfer, according to the government, and a hearing has been set for Thursday morning. The government did not name the country, but a U.S. official confirmed to The Hill that officials are seeking to transfer him to Saudi Arabia. The detainee, known publicly only as John Doe, also holds a citizenship there, The Hill has...

    A confrontation over a parking space at a Macon restaurant escalated into an all-out brawl that ended in the arrest of a 71-year-old woman, according to a Bibb County sheriff deputy’s report. Cellphone footage of the incident Saturday night shows a scene of people lunging and slapping each other inside the Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen. Before deputies arrested Judy James Tucker, she told them that the incident “started over a parking spot” and it was “because she was white and it was a race issue,” the deputy’s write-up said.

    News | 16 April 2018 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    The immeasurable hypocrisy of the Democrat Party is really coming to light. This is not an article to defend Donald Trump's alleged immorality. This article is about the news media's hypocrisy and not reporting the infidelity of Kennedy, Clinton and many other leaders. Morality only matters to Democrats when the opposing party has failed in that Arena. The only purpose for dragging Cohen and Trump into court is to destroy the support from Trump's constituency. All of this is an attack on us, his supporters, not on Trump himself. It is not going to work. Funny how when Clinton was...

    Vogue magazine, the arbiter of fashion, couldn't get enough of Michelle Obama. The same has not been true of Melania Trump. The New York Post observes: Magazines are showing no love for Melania Trump. The internet was in a tizzy last week when actor James Woods pointed out via Twitter that the first lady hasn’t been a muse for the magazine industry since her husband, President Trump, took office. Woods tweeted: “If the Trumps were Democrats, Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” The tweet, which was accompanied by an old...

    This weekend, days before President Donald Trump arrived at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Fla., porn star Stephanie Clifford — better known as "Stormy Daniels" — performed at a strip club across town, even inspiring a protest on Saturday. Clifford performed less than five miles east of the "Winter White House" Mar-a-Lago, at the Ultra Gentlemen's Club in West Palm Beach. The club also lies between Trump International Golf Club and Mar-a-Lago. The club announced her performance last month. The porn star is leading a "Make America Horny Again" tour to draw attention to her alleged affair with President...

    BARCELONA, Spain – Roger Waters, former frontman for Pink Floyd, denounced the White Helmets during a concert last Friday in Barcelona. He called the group who pose as a civilian rescue group as a “fake organization” that prompted propaganda for “jihadists and terrorists.” The former Pink Floyd frontman claimed that listening to “propaganda of the White Helmets and others we would be encouraged to encourage our governments to go and start dropping bombs on people in Syria.”What spouted the political driven comments was someone wanting to go on stage to talk about the alleged chemical attack in Syria’s Douma.“He is...

    This is a watered down horror show that gives viewers enough imagery and facts to confirm for themselves that there exists a high-level cult that can be characterized as demonic. The imagery is not so horrific as to render viewers squeamish (which is why I selected it) but it confirms via social media a worldwide network of persons centered on Satanic things. I think it's important to see such evidence that lays out hard facts and puts to rest any related gossip, conspiracies, rumors, speculation in favor of confirmed evidence. Perhaps what is striking is that the deranged minds involved...

    Michael Cohen is asking Judge Kimba Wood to suppress legal documents related to his relationship with Donald Trump in his trial over payments to the pornographic actress Stormy Daniels. Wood also officiated at a non-denominational wedding service for billionaire George Soros in 2013. She was nominated as Attorney General by President Bill Clinton but withdrew in a flap over her hiring of a nanny who was not eligible to work in the U.S. As a cash-strapped student she once spent five days in a training course to be a Playboy bunny. Kimba Maureen Wood is a Senior United States District...

    The motives behind this interview are transparent. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is attempting to push back against growing opinion he has lost control of the DOJ, and more specifically the rogue elements within it. Functionally, and by sheer weight of visible outcomes, there are influential embeds within the apparatus of the DOJ continuing their effort to undermine the Office of the President. Amid the AG effort to restore higher principles and standards, ie. removing the politicization, the usurping Main Justice agents are taking advantage. The ‘small group’ is seemingly running amok – unchecked in their objective to undermine the office...

    Pac-Man and Donkey Kong master Billy Mitchell has built up quite the reputation for himself over the last few decades, both for his undeniable gaming skills and his abrasive and competitive personality. Unfortunately, it appears he’ll now be remembered for something else, as well: Cheating. Twin Galaxies, a retro-gaming record organization that tracks scores in many classic arcade games, announced on April 12 that it was removing Billy Mitchell’s Donkey Kong scores from its leaderboards, as well as all scores he had achieved in other games.The decision comes after the validity of several of his Donkey Kong scores were called...
  • $30,000 rumor? Tabloid paid for, spiked, salacious Trump tip

    NEW YORK — Eight months before the company that owns the National Enquirer paid $150,000 to a former Playboy Playmate who claimed she’d had an affair with Donald Trump, the tabloid’s parent made a $30,000 payment to a less famous individual: a former doorman at one of the real estate mogul’s New York City buildings. As it did with the ex-Playmate, the Enquirer signed the ex-doorman to a contract that effectively prevented him from going public with a juicy tale that might hurt Trump’s campaign for president. The payout to the former Playmate, Karen McDougal, stayed a secret until the...

Palin declared, “The reason that I did want to call was to thank Breitbart for covering so fully and so intelligently this whole Facebook stuff and to also explain it to people.” Palin also said, “I feel that with things like today, with Facebook, such a liberal group of people who are trying to control and regulate and make sure that we the people don’t get back in control of...
