  • Let’s Take a Stroll – Letter of Notice From Trump Transition To Congress Outlining Illegal

    12/18/2017 4:27:52 AM PST · by bitt · 48 replies
    It is my belief, based on mounting evidence, a specific cast of characters -within the Mueller “Russia Election Interference” probe- were placed there to protect people behind the FBI’s initial false claims. Those claims formed the basis for the counterintelligence operation against 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump. According to reports, in August 2017 the Mueller team went around the Trump administration in their quest for documents, by directly demanding documents from the General Services Agency (GSA); the entity that hosted the communication network for the Trump transition team. According to reports, the content of 12 email accounts was handed over...

  • THE WASHINGTON TIMES Review of "The War on Guns:Arming yourself against gun control lies"

    The Washington Times ^ | August 29, 2016 | By: Joseph Greenlee
    In his new book, “The War on Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies,” John Lott methodically dismantles one popular gun-control myth after another. It has been said that a lie told often enough becomes the truth, and a similar phenomenon is overwhelming the gun debate in America. Oft-repeated untruths have formed common beliefs that often sway the debate about firearms. Gun-control advocates have learned that their exaggerated claims are likely to go unchecked by a largely sympathetic media, allowing them to control the narrative and shape public opinion. What is more, as Mr. Lott explains, billionaire elitists like George...

  • Donald Trump wants to deport all unauthorized immigrants and let the “really good” ones back in

    Vox ^ | August 1st, 2015 | by Dara Lind and Javier Zarracina
    On Monday, I pointed out that a majority of Republican voters were to Donald Trump's right on immigration: Fully 63 percent of them wanted a plan to deport all unauthorized immigrants. On Thursday, Trump pretty much closed the gap, proposing to deport all 11 million unauthorized immigrants currently in the US and then let some select few return. From CNN (via Greg Sargent at the Washington Post): Trump said Wednesday in an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash that as president he would deport all undocumented immigrants and then allow the "good ones" to reenter the country through an "expedited process"...

  • Obama To Allow "Moderate" Syrian Rebels Call In B-1B Bombers For Air Support

    While Obama desperately tries to stick to his now crushed "Nobel peace prize winner" image, by not succumbing to an all-out land war in the one nation where his progressive "pacifism" brought him fame (and according to some, the presidency), namely Iraq, the rest of militant, "interventionist" US foreign policy is rapidly starting to resemble that waged by the most brutally rabid, neo-con Republican leader. Case in point an absolute stunner reported minutes ago by the WSJ, according to which the White House has decided to provide pickup trucks equipped with mounted machine guns and radios for calling in U.S....

    Many big brands are intensely religious, even though consumers may not realize it. Most of the time, it comes from a devout founder passing his or her values on down the line. Some companies put their religion right out in the open, and are proud of their identities. Chick-fil-A is infamous for closing on Sundays, and In-N-Out puts Bible verses on its packaging. Interstate Batteries' mission statement states up front that it exists "to glorify God" while selling its products. Read more:

    Romney had said, "I'm gonna stop the subsidy to PBS ... I like PBS, I love Big Bird ... but I am not going to keep spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for." Cecelia and others were upset about potentially losing the long-running "Sesame Street" and other PBS shows. Cecelia's handwritten letter reads as follows: "I saw you on the debate last night and you said you would cut off PBS kids with Sesame Street on it. It was my favorite show on Earth.

    July 16, 2012 (DETROIT) (WLS) -- A pastor got a big surprise during a weekend religious revival in Detroit. Someone stole the tires right off his car in a church parking lot. Pastor Dwayne Houston and his wife traveled from Dallas to attend a revival at a Detroit church. Just 30 minutes into the program, the pastor was told his tires and rims were missing. The thieves were so brazen they screwed the lug nuts back on the wheels before taking off with the brand new tires

    Health experts in New York want to widen the proposed ban on super-sized soda to include juices, milk shakes and even popcorn, it emerged today. Mayor Michael Bloomberg plans to outlaw sugary drinks over 16 ounces (1 pint) in the city's restaurants, delis, food trucks, movie theatres and sporting arenas. Now officials charged with deciding on whether it should come into force have suggested they would be in favour of incorporating other unhealthy snacks.

    Emotions raw Go into Milwaukee, and it's easy to find discouraged voters who want Walker out. He doesn't understand, they say, that they only want help, not handouts. Greg Renden, a public defender, took a pay cut. He blames Walker for making an already dismal economy worse. "He's abdicated the role of trying to help people in need," Renden said. The splintering that started when Walker cut bargaining rights has seeped into other issues: austere budget choices; a voter-ID law; removal of a law that allowed people to seek punitive and compensatory damages in state court over employment discrimination; and...
  • White House acknowledges letter to Iran, mum on alleged call for direct talks

    Obama administration officials would not confirm whether President Obama called for direct talks with Iran, after an Iranian lawmaker claimed Wednesday that the president floated the proposal in a secret letter to the Islamic Republic's supreme leader. The White House acknowledged the letter and reiterated that the door remains open for Iran to return to international talks over its nuclear program. "It remains available to Iran to this day," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, adding that the U.S. position has not changed. But he did not confirm whether the president called for direct talks. The letter also warned...

    WASHINGTON — Eighty-three victims and family members in the worst-ever mass shooting at a U.S. military installation are seeking $750 million in compensation from the Army, alleging that willful negligence enabled psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan to carry out a terrorist attack at Fort Hood, Texas. The administrative claims filed last week said the government had clear warnings that Hasan, who is scheduled to go on trial in March, posed a grave danger to the lives of soldiers and civilians.
