    Sore loser Hillary Clinton still cannot get over being defeated by Donald Trump for the presidency nearly two years ago now. Sunday night, on the eve of President Trump’s summit in Finland with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Clinton trolled Trump on Twitter, questioning his loyalty to the Unites States. “Great World Cup. Question for President Trump as he meets Putin: Do you know which team you play for?”

    At the summit meeting with US President Donald Trump in Helsinki on Monday, Putin said that the United States might file a request to question the Russians indicted in the US, under the 1999 Treaty on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters, and Russian investigators could interrogate them. "Then we will expect from the American side to question, in presence of our detectives, those officials, including US special services agents, who we suspect of committing illegal activities in the Russian Federation," he emphasized. "What do I mean? The notorious case of Bill Browder, the founder of the Hermitage Capital Management."

    Oregon Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley speculated about the existence of a “pee tape” with President Donald Trump during an interview with BuzzFeed. “Do you think Vladimir Putin has something on him?” BuzzFeed editor Ben Smith asked Merkley during a sit-down interview, noting Trump’s reluctance to ever criticize the Russian president. “I think it’s likely, yeah,” Merkley confirmed.

    A federal judge on Monday ordered a temporary halt to any deportations of immigrant families who were reunited after being separated by the Trump administration at the border. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw imposed a delay of at least a week after a request from the American Civil Liberties Union, which cited "persistent and increasing rumors ... that mass deportations may be carried out imminently and immediately upon reunification." Justice Department attorney Scott Stewart opposed the delay but did not address the rumors in court. He said he would respond later in writing. The judge gave the department until next...
  • Report: Mitt Romney Organizes 2020 Donor Meetup for Starbucks’ Howard Schultz

    Starbucks founder Howard Schultz — who is contemplating a presidential run as a Democrat — recently attended a private gathering of political donors organized by Mitt Romney, according to a report at Politico. Politico’s Ben Schrekinger writes that the donors, “convened by” Romney, were unimpressed with the would-be candidate: Wall Street analysts are wary, and company leadership is nervous, about the effect a Democratic bid by its chairman emeritus could have on Starbucks’ business, given its bipartisan customer base. If that weren’t discouraging enough, his retirement last month set off a boomlet of pundits urging him not to run. And...

    Last Friday, in a carefully timed construct, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein delivered a purely political statement to the media under the auspices of indictments against 13 Russians. Make no mistake, the entire construct of Mueller’s team project; and the enabling of Rod Rosenstein; was intended to do what it has been doing for over a year, diminish, disrupt and eventually stop President Trump. President Trump remains an existential threat to the business interests within the apparatus of professional politics. Additionally, candidate Trump defeated the professional political class despite the stunningly Machiavellian surveillance schemes of the deep administrative state which...

    Anderson Cooper made it very clear how he felt about president Donald Trump's performance during his joint press conference with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. 'You have been watching perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit in front of a Russian leader certainly that I've ever seen,' began Cooper in his remarks once the press conference had ended on Monday. Cooper said this in a calm and even voice, delivering it as fact and not an opinion.
  • Trump Is Right: Mueller’s Latest Indictment Suggests He’s Conducting A Witch Hunt

    On Friday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller returned a multi-count indictment charging 12 Russians and the Russian military agency, GRU, with crimes related to hacking into the Democratic National Committee’s computers and seeking to use the information to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election. When the news broke, pundits quickly used Mueller’s latest charges to chastise Trump for claiming the special counsel investigation is a “witch hunt.” The New York Times claimed “[t]he 37-page indictment — handed up by a federal grand jury in Washington — amounted to a detailed rebuttal of Mr. Trump, who has sowed doubts that Russia interfered...

    So, is Russia now presumed innocent of hacking the 2016 election? If not, it is difficult to understand any proper purpose served by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of twelve military officers in the Kremlin’s intelligence services... Make no mistake: This is nakedly politicized law enforcement. There is absolutely no chance any of the Russian officials charged will ever see the inside of an American courtroom. The indictment is a strictly political document by which the special counsel seeks to justify the existence of his superfluous investigation. snip Lacking the requisite basis to conduct a criminal investigation, the Justice Department...

    The Obama Administration's CIA director, John Brennan, charged that President Trump's post-summit press conference with Russia President Vladimir Putin was an act of treason. "Donald Trump's press performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of 'high crimes and misdemeanors,'" Brennan tweeted. "It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump's comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???" Moments after tweeting, Brennan appeared on MSNBC and demanded Trump cabinet officials resign in protest.

    What if the bluest state in the country stole a third of a billion dollars from victims of chicanery and the media refused to notice?    I have been stunned at the lack of media coverage of California’s foiled robbery of almost a third of a billion dollars. That’s right: under Governor Jerry Brown, the Great State of California helped itself to hundreds of millions of dollars – money that was supposed to go to home owners, and you probably didn’t hear about it. Bib Egelko of the San Francisco Chronicle was one of the few to cover this...

    Did anyone catch the press briefing this morning? Putin was asked by a reported whether he would be willing to cooperate with the Mueller investigation and a request for extradition of the 12 named intelligence agents accused of infiltrating and manipulation of the US election process. Putin declared that his government would be willing to allow Mueller investigators access to the 12 Russians in exchange for American cooperation in bringing to justice Clinton associates, including Mueller cohorts involved in illegal business transactions that allegedly took place in Russia, involving, according to Putin's statement, over $400 million dollars that was taken...

    Immigrants accused of sexual assault, driving under the influence, burglary and domestic violence were among 37 arrested in a five-day "enforcement surge" in Middlesex County, immigration officials said Monday. The 37 people arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement included 16 who were released by the the Middlesex County Jail, which is among the New Jersey county jails located in a county that has a policy of limiting cooperation with federal immigration officials. "Middlesex County, which aspires to be a 'sanctuary county' by protecting criminal aliens, in the process assists criminals in undermining federal law, and creates a dangerous environment...

    (CNSNews.com) - Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said today's Trump-Putim summit in Helsinki is not about holding Russia accountable for its cyber-hacking and election interference. "I think really we mistake our response if we think it's about accountability from the Russians," Paul told CNN's "State of the Union." They are another country. They are going to spy on us. The do spy on us. They are going to interfere in our elections. We also do the same. Doug Levin at Carnegie Mellon studied this over about a 50-year period in the last century and found 81 times that the U.S. interfered...

    Former CIA Director John Brennan on Monday slammed President Trump for meeting alone with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Brennan, a frequent Trump critic, questioned what the president was “hiding” from his own advisers by insisting on meeting one-on-one with Putin at their summit in Helsinki, Finland. “Why did Trump meet 1 on 1 with Putin? What might he be hiding from Bolton, Pompeo, Kelly, & the American public?” Brennan tweeted. “How will Putin use whatever Trump could be hiding to advantage Russia & hurt America? Trump’s total lack of credibility renders spurious whatever explanation he gives.” Trump and Putin met...

    California has long been known as the land of “fruits and nuts” – a mentality that permeates every aspect of life there – and it never ends. The latest fiascoes involve “law and order” – or at least, what one would assume deals with the law and the orderly adherence to it. But this is California we’re talking about, and like Alice through the Looking Glass, nothing is what it seems. The state has passed gun-control laws, laws regulating items purchased, requiring ammunition identification that is impossible to do, and even changing the laws to reduce the penalties for crimes....
