    The Hill ^ | 11/15/18 | Harper Neidig and Ali Breland
    Facebook is being hit with fresh criticism from Capitol Hill as lawmakers reacted harshly Thursday to a New York Times investigation that detailed the company’s efforts to wield influence in Washington after becoming aware of Russia-linked activity on its platform during the 2016 presidential campaign. The explosive article laid out how Facebook’s leadership was reluctant to confront the Russian efforts on its platform and was unprepared for the subsequent firestorm and fallout, which involved the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Specifically, the Times reported that the tech giant used a Republican opposition research firm called Definers Public Affairs to accuse liberal financier...

    Olympia, the Sanctuary of Zeus and venue of the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece, was probably destroyed by tsunamis that reached far inland, and not as previously believed, by earthquakes and river flooding... Paläotsunamis that have taken place over the last 11,000 years along the coasts of the eastern Mediterranean. The Olympic-tsunami hypothesis has been put forward due to sediments found in the vicinity of Olympia, which were buried under an 8 metres thick layer of sand and other debris, and only rediscovered around 250 years ago. "The composition and thickness of the sediments we have found, do not fit...

    [S]cientists scooped up the small marine animals and placed them in a container full of water. On their next dive, they returned the octopuses back into the ocean "in a small protected space." Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park marine ecologist Sallie Beavers told The Associated Press one squirted a tiny bit of ink when they released it in the ocean. They later confirmed they found the second octopus on top of plastic debris attacking and killing a crab."Maybe they aren't so cute?" the national park joked on social media, sharing a photo of the unique sight.-snip- Beavers believes they were likely either day...
  • Is Tulsi Gabbard The Latest 2020 Democrat Hopeful?

    Is Rep. Tulsi Gabbard preparing for a run in the 2020 Democrat primary for president? The Hawaiian representative is the first Hindu to serve in Congress and an Iraqi war veteran. She’s also a Bernie Bro anti-war progressive who has even managed to get sideways with Hawaii’s teacher union. That takes some doing for a Democrat to lose the endorsement of a teacher’s union. She was one of just three representatives and the only Democrat who refused to condemn Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s genocidal chemical attack on his own people. After the attack, Gabbard traveled to Syria to meet...

    Full title: Sen. Hirono Condemns McConnell Calling Leftist Protestors a 'Mob', Says It 'Dangerously Underestimates' Them Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) slammed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) Thursday for using the word “mob” in reference to left-wing protestors that have been targeting GOP lawmakers over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. “It is the richest of ironies that the majority leader has taken to calling those opposed to the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh a mob when several nights a month the president whips his supporters into a frenzy to attack his target of choice,” she said in a...

    Democratic U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono says she was disappointed by recent comments Sen. Lindsey Graham made on Fox News, in which he sharply criticized her role in the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Hirono said that she had been able to work with Graham on bipartisan issues in the past. “I do think Lindsey is channeling Trump to a great extent,” Hirono told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser on Tuesday. “I’m very disappointed because I worked with Lindsey on immigration issues and other issues … Frankly, it is so outrageous; it just shows that they will say anything to...

    MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Tuesday challenged media to investigate how the Democrats handled Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Scarborough argued Ford’s “unsubstantiated allegations” that leaked would “most likely not have made print” five or 10 years ago. “What New York Times reporter, what Washington Post reporter was assigned a story by their editors to go see what really happened with Dianne Feinstein, and asked Dianne Feinstein and her staff the sort of questions that would have happened if the Republican Party had done the same thing. Not one,” stated Scarborough. He...

    Ah well as they say, Christmas comes early for us on the sane side of the aisle. Doyenne F. In a last second, hail Mary bomb, tried her damndest to sabotage the nomination of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Firstly, I hope the reps hone in on this and drive it down the throats of America, the cheap, back-handed, dirty politics that this ilk will stoop to to get their way. Which is to say, they will do anything. It is a tremendous campaign point and I would hope that someone would (leak the substance of this report, or should...

    Maine Sen. Susan Collins gave an approximately 40-minute Senate floor speech in which she blasted the state of the Supreme Court nomination process, ripped the unidentified "leaker" of Christine Blasey Ford's identity and confirmed she will support Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Collins, a Republican, addressed the unknown leaker directly: "To the leaker, who I hope is listening now, let me say that what you did was unconscionable," Collins said. "You have taken a survivor who was not only entitled to your respect but who also trusted you to protect her and you have sacrificed her well-being in a misguided attempt to...

    Now we know that Ford’s longtime best friend, McLean, who was at the beach with her when she composed the famous letter that got leaked is also a very deep state operative. And Laufman is her lawyer. McLean was in the second row at the hearing, one of the reserved seats, as she was photographed coming in after Ford and her lawyers. McLean is a retired (within the last year or so) FBI lawyer herself. She is the one who Ford’s former boyfriend swore he had seen being coached by Ford years ago to take her polygraph for her FBI...

    If you thought it was sketchy that Ms. Christine Blasey-Ford’s life-long best friend was a recently retired FBI agent and DOJ official, Monica McLean {Go Deep}; and if you thought it was sketchy that McLean and Ford were together on July 30th when Ford was writing a letter to Dianne Feinstein, likely making the friend Ms Ford’s “handler” for the operation against Kavanaugh; then it’s even more sketchy today with a report that McLean was pressuring witness Leland Keyser to shape her statements and testimony to the FBI.

    As attorneys for Christine Ford Blasey demanded an FBI investigation over the last two weeks, the Wall Street Journal reports that her allies were pressuring one witness to change her story. Ford named Leland Keyser as one of four potential witnesses to the Washington Post, but once her name became public, Keyser issued a statement through her attorneys that she cannot recall ever being at a party with Brett Kavanaugh.Almost immediately, a Ford friend began pressing her to modify her first statement — and that friend just happened to be a former FBI agent: A friend of Christine Blasey...

    Leland Keyser’s relative has accused Christine Blasey Ford of throwing her “witness” and lifelong friend–Keyser–“under the bus.” This family member also sounds skeptical of Ford’s allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Ford, the woman whose accusations of sexual conduct have crumbled under scrutiny, claimed that Keyser, a lifelong friend since high school, would validate her allegation. Instead, Keyser said in a statement that she not only does not remember the house party where the 1982 incident allegedly took place, but she also has never even met Kavanaugh. Although Ford’s story has countless discrepancies already, the fact that all three...

    So far, the Senate has managed to keep the FBI report on their supplemental background check of Brett Kavanaugh from leaking. Who knew Washington could keep a secret? Late last night, however, Senate Judiciary chair Chuck Grassley released the report’s executive summary, which only took one page to write. Their conclusion was even more terse: INBOX: Sen. Grassley just emailed an executive summary of the FBI investigation report. It's concise enough to fit in one screenshot.— Steven Mazie (@stevenmazie) October 5, 2018 The Supplemental Background Investigation confirms what the Senate Judiciary Committee concluded after its investigation: there is...

    Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins -- a key swing-vote whose dramatic floor speech on Friday assured Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court -- revealed on Sunday that she initially thought Kavanaugh "perhaps needed to withdraw" after she heard Christine Blasey Ford's "very compelling and painful" testimony. But then, Collins said, "When [Kavanaugh] came back with a forceful denial, the anger and anguish he showed, and then the lack of corroboration, led me back to the fundamental issues to our legal system." Both Ford and Kavanaugh testified at length in late September before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Ford alleged that...

    Hidden by the rabid anti-Trump media, who were preoccupied with their role in reporting non-stop the coverage of the protesters who were paid to disrupt the hearings for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was a letter that Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley sent to the attorneys for accuser Christine Blasey-Ford. Chairman Grassley sent the letter on Thursday, the same day as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell moved for cloture to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination to the full Senate where a vote would them be taken (Friday) to open a 30-hour period of comment and consideration before the final confirmation...

    As hinted at days earlier here at D.C. Whispers, the Senate Judiciary Committee is now preparing to launch a full investigation into the machinations of Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team and the office of Senator Diane Feinstein based upon “…recently uncovered information.” It appears that FBI supplemental investigation into Judge (Justice) Brett Kavanaugh that Senator Feinstein demanded has backfired on her – BIG TIME.
