  • AG nominee Barr backs off past Clinton Foundation comments

    Attorney General nominee Bill Barr reaffirmed Tuesday that, if confirmed, he would allow special counsel Robert Mueller to finish the Russia investigation, but Barr's testimony surrounding a prior eyebrow-raising claim that more should be done to investigate the Clinton Foundation, and his related correspondence with a reporter on that issue, has caught the attention of his critics and raises fresh questions on how he'd handle the issue if confirmed. Barr was interviewed by The New York Times in the fall of 2017 about the pressure President Donald Trump continued to mount on the Justice Department to investigate his political foes....

    For the second time in two years, Los Angeles detectives have found a man dead inside the apartment of Ed Buck, a political activist who rose to national prominence in the late 1980s for his effort to recall the governor of Arizona, the authorities said. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said it received a 911 call shortly after 1 a.m. on Monday from a person who claimed that a man inside a West Hollywood apartment had stopped breathing and could not be resuscitated. When emergency responders arrived at the residence, a second-floor unit on Laurel Avenue, they declared the...

    EXCERPT---Several of the Democrat-only senators to whom Weinstein has so generously targeted his hush money over the years joined Patrick Leahy in announcing they would be contributing their ill-gotten gains to "women's" organizations, too. Presumably, this money will go to "women's" organizations like Emily's List and PP, so the senators can all be sure they will get the money right back. These execrable excuses for human beings include Chuck Schumer, Kamala Harris, valor thief Richard Blumenthal, Cory Booker and Martin Heinrich. If you're wondering why I'm listing the names of these senators for you, it is because what Weinstein was...
  • Exculpatory Russia evidence about Mike Flynn that US intel kept secret

    Sometimes public silence can be deafening or, for that matter, misleading. For nearly two years now, the intelligence community has kept secret evidence in the Russia collusion case that directly undercuts the portrayal of retired Army general and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn as a Russian stooge. That silence was maintained even when former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates publicly claimed Flynn was possibly “compromised” by Moscow. And when a Democratic senator, Al Franken of Minnesota, suggested the former Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) chief posed a “danger to this republic.” And even when some media outlets opined about...

Then, there was the whole Yanni vs. Laurel thing. Which did you hear? Warning: This story contains a Twitter post that some may find offensive. Now, folks are flipping out because they think they heard loveable Grover drop the F-bomb on “Sesame Street.” Just remember, we’re talking about a children’s TV show here.
  • DEMOCRATS SPENT SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY BUILDING FAKE RUSSIAN BOTS AS RUSSIA DID ON REAL RUSSIAN BOTS

    While the debate rages on over how much Russia really influenced the results of the 2016 presidential elections, one detail put the entire controversy in perspective: Democratic operatives spent an identical amount of money on their project to create a Russian bot “false flag” campaign during the Alabama 2017 special election. Multiple reports detailed the Russian government-backed Internet Research Agency spent up to $100,000 on Facebook advertisements throughout their entire disinformation operation. As The Daily Caller News Foundation reported Wednesday, billionaire-backed Democrats “created more than a thousand Russian-language accounts that followed [Roy] Moore’s Twitter account overnight.” The group of Democrats...

    Sunday marks one year since the New York Times broke open a provocative secret when it reported about the existence of a long-term Pentagon study of UFOs - Unidentified Flying Objects. In the 12 months since then, the I-Team has unveiled new details about the study, which was based in Las Vegas. So, what comes next? And will 2019 bring the public closer to understanding what the government already knows? The I-Team's George Knapp sat down for an exclusive interview with an intelligence officer who chased flying saucers for the Pentagon. "When you say, something big is coming, what does...

    Boston Globe ^ | December 19, 2018
    The narrative propagated by CBS, actor Michael Weatherly, and writer-producer Glenn Gordon Caron is deceptive and in no way fits with how they treated me on the set of the television show “Bull’’ and retaliated against me for simply asking to do my job without relentless sexual harassment. This is not a “he-said/she-said” case. Weatherly’s behavior was captured on CBS’s own videotape recordings. I feel compelled to chronicle what actually happened after The New York Times published a story about how CBS handled my allegations. I declined to be interviewed for that piece because I wanted to honor the terms...

    Christopher Steele, the former British spy who prepared the Russia “dossier” that has led to more than two years of investigations into President Donald Trump’s campaign, has told a London court that he was hired to provide a basis to challenge the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election in the event that Trump won. The Washington Times reported Monday (original links): He said the law firm Perkins Coie wanted to be in a position to contest the results based on evidence he unearthed on the Trump campaign conspiring with Moscow on election interference. His scenario is contained in a sealed...

    The Supreme Court held long ago in Brady v. Maryland that the Constitution requires the prosecution, which holds all the cards in a criminal case, to give the defense all evidence favorable to the defendant, whether it impeaches a witness, mitigates punishment or shows his innocence. Indeed, the burden is on prosecutors to find anything in the possession of the government that is favorable to the defense. From the minute Judge Emmet G. Sullivan received the case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, which will be decided on Tuesday, he ordered Mueller to provide the defense with all Brady material Last...

    BRUSSELS, December 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Poland and Hungary blocked the inclusion of “LGBTIQ” rights in a common European Union statement. Last week representatives from Poland and Hungary annoyed other European Union (EU) member states by vetoing the inclusion of the “LGBTIQ” acronym in a joint statement by employment and social affairs ministers meant to promote “gender equity in the digital era.” LGBTIQ is a reference to people who derive their identity from lesbianism, homosexuality, bisexuality, transgenderism, intersexuality, or an experimental “questioning” approach to sexuality. The European employment and social affairs ministers collectively form the EU Employment, Social Policy, Health...

    The Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General (OIG) has released a report on its investigation into the recovery of text messages from FBI mobile devices that were once operated by disgraced former FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. The report reveals disturbing details about the inner workings and lack of transparency in the office of special counsel Robert Mueller, who has been investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election for the past 575 days and has failed to publicize any evidence of Trump-Russia “collusion.” The OIG report found that all of the texts off of Strzok’s and...

    On Friday morning Hillary Clinton responded to a court order forced by Judicial Watch to answer more questions about the setting up of her private server. Judicial Watch appeared in a DC federal court last month on a motion to compel more testimony from Hillary Clinton as well as to make public video recordings of depositions of top Clinton aides such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills. The court ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer more questions about the setting up of her private server under oath. As expected, Hillary Clinton responded to the court order with her usual arrogance...

    Witnesses have been grilled by members of a US House oversight committee over the probability that the Clinton Foundation had received donations from foreign powers who wanted favors in return. The shady donation tactic, otherwise known as "pay-to-play," allows donations as a means for preferential treatment for outside influencers.

    The Justice Department and FBI have missed a Wednesday deadline to provide information about the government's mysterious raid on a former FBI contractor-turned-whistleblower's home last month. Sixteen FBI agents on Nov. 19 raided the home of Dennis Nathan Cain, who reportedly gave the Justice Department's Inspector General (IG) documents related to the Uranium One controversy and potential wrongdoing by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The documents in question allegedly showed that federal officials failed to investigate possible criminal activity related to Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, a Russian nuclear company. Its subsidiary purchased Canadian mining company Uranium One...
  • One Indisputable Takeaway From Comey Performance: Thank God Trump Won

    12/11/2018 7:21:00 AM PST · by Liberty7732 · 18 replies
    Insidious: Working or spreading harmfully in a subtle or stealthy manner. Mr. Gowdy. Why is the appearance of bias as insidious as actual bias? Mr. Comey. The appearance of bias is as important. I don’t know exactly what the word “insidious” means, so I’m not saying that one. On Friday, Former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation James Comey met in a closed meeting with members of Congress to discuss Hillary Clinton’s email investigation and Comey’s handling thereof. Comey’s initial response to being interviewed was to avoid a closed hearing, apparently preferring an open setting. After realizing that he...

    A Minnesota public school is looking into the source of a meme targeting President Donald Trump, which was posted on the school’s official Facebook page. Posted on Saturday night to the Garfield Elementary School Facebook page, the meme was a photo of Trump and then–presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during a presidential debate. Accompanying the photo was the sentiment, “People love to hate Hillary, but she called Trump a Russian puppet right to his stupid f*****g face. I’ll always respect her for that.” The post has since been taken down, (snip) Garfield Elementary School Principal Jodi Kennedy told The Bemidji Pioneer...
