    A journalist was assaulted by a soon-to-be congresswoman while asking her questions at a political rally for U.S. Congressional candidate Ilhan Omar in Minnesota on Saturday. Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian Muslim who won her primary in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District on Tuesday, forcefully grabbed Jewish journalist Laura Loomer and stole her phone when Loomer approached her to ask questions at the rally. In the Middle East, violence against Jews may be tolerable. In America, where Tlaib – running unopposed after her primary win – and is set to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives, it is not. In fact,...

    After days of being dressed down by the judge overseeing the Paul Manafort case, federal prosecutors sought Thursday to put their foot down -- filing a motion complaining that Judge T.S. Ellis III had unfairly admonished them in front of the jury. Ellis has memorably and repeatedly criticized Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team during the trial for the former Trump campaign chairman. On Wednesday, Ellis ripped into prosecutors for letting a witness, IRS Agent Michael Welsh, sit in the courtroom before his testimony. But in a five-page motion filed Thursday, Mueller deputy Andrew Weissmann and other attorneys on the team...

    The narco-terror ringleader who planned the 2009 bombing of Oprah Winfrey’s Chicago studios and the iconic Sears Tower has been released from jail, his newfound freedom facilitated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Emad Karakrah was incarcerated in Cook County Jail since taking police on a high-speed chase through Chicago streets in late August and threatening to blow up his car. An Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) flag waved from the vehicle and Karakrah got charged with making a false car bomb threat. But on January 7, 2015 Karakrah reached a plea deal in Cook County Court...

Many people have questioned what the point of Q really is, given that none of us are actually prosecuting the guilty parties and we don’t have the wherewithal to do so. So what is the point of Q and what is he doing here? If you are still reading this article, I believe this was precisely the point. If Trump, Q and their team already have all of the dirt needed to prosecute everyone for these terrible crimes, our part of this...

    Today’s soccer/football match between Persepolis and Esteghlal Khuzestan held in Al Qadeer Stadium of Ahvaz, southwest Iran, became the scene of the city’s youth clashing with the repressive state police and anti-riot units.

Security forces have closed all roads leading to the stadium to prevent people from joining the protesting youths, reported opposition sources.

    The weaponization of the FBI's counterintelligence operations on behalf of Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy is the greatest political scandal in American history. The dramatic story is unfolding before our eyes, and the key point to remember is that declassification of key documents is controlling the pace of the story – and President Trump has the ability to declassify anything he sees fit to share with the American public. This alone should be enough to strike terror in the heart of anyone implicated in this scheme. But when you consider that Donald Trump is the most successful reality television producer in...

You are trying to trap him because you don’t have a case!” Rudy Giuliani: The real story here is not that this case is going to fizzle. It’s going to BLOW UP on them! The real question is what we talked about before. There’s a lot more to what they...

And on Wednesday, Ellis chastised Andres again for how he speaks to him. At one point, Andres responded with a simple "yea." "Be careful about that, this is not an informal proceeding," Ellis warned.

Jarrett said Mueller is "looking in all the wrong places" for corruption and crime when he examines President Donald Trump's records. "Documents show the FBI and DOJ knew the [Steele-Russia] dossier was phony [and that] Christopher Steele was a liar," Jarrett said.
