  • Rod Rosenstein Eyeing Exit from DOJ; Mulling Job Offers from Network TV News and Law Firms

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is mulling job offers from at least one mainstream media network television news team and two law firms who would hire the embattled public servant as a partner, according to sources in the Justice Department. The problem is Rosenstein still employed by the Justice Department. Perhaps not for long. But he might be looking for a way to parachute out before he is fired by President Trump. Or have a landing pad in case he is fired. NBC News has discussed a position with Rosenstein as an on-air pundit and analyst, sources said. And a...
  • Recommendations for car donations please

    Vanity
    I am considering donating my car to a charity. The internet is full of charities that want the car but there is very little on the money management "internals" that say how the money is distributed. The BBB says some give as little as 4% up to 44% but usually they don't name names at either end of the spectrum. Any Freepers out there with recommendations and positive experiences? My preference would be to donate to Disabled Veterans, Veterans or animal welfare organizations in that order.

    She is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough,” said the president of the United States in 2013. “She also happens to be, by far, the best looking attorney general in the country.” That would be former California Attorney General Kamala Harris, daughter of Indian and Jamaican immigrants, and now the state’s junior U.S. senator. As it happens, Barack Obama was not the first prominent Democrat to be dazzled by the UC Berkeley beauty. As speaker of the California State Assembly from 1980 to 1995, Willie Brown was by far the Golden State’s most powerful shot-caller. In 1994...

    Illinois Review ^ | April 20, 2018 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    For over a century, Chicagoans grew up with a signature memory: special days downtown, shopping at Marshall Field’s and Carson’s, the great rival retail giants down the block from each other on State Street. (shown here: Carson's longtime downtown landmark by Louis Sullivan, sold off years ago). Smaller stores came and went, but Field’s and Carson’s were the giants, the dominant figures in Midwestern retail for generations. Macy’s bought out the struggling Field’s chain over a decade ago and cremated the brand name while keeping the stores. Carson, Pirie, Scott & Co. wasn’t so lucky; its current holding company, Bon-Ton,...

    It’s time to see if Democrats are serious about their alleged support for campaign finance laws We always hear Democrats talking about how they want to pass new campaign finance laws.So I’m curious to see if these same Democrats will want to enforce the campaign finance laws that are already on the books.Hillary Clinton committed $84 million in campaign finance law violations. So far, not a angle Democrat has called for her to be prosecuted.By comparison, the Obama administration sent Dinesh D’Souza (who had previously made an anti-Obama film) to prison for a $20,000 campaign finance law violation. D’Souza did indeed...

    Parents, pastors, politicians and educators will join a Muslim imam at a mosque Friday in Oakland County, Michigan, to pray and discuss how to make their schools and community safer in an era of mass school shootings. The Muslim Unity Center, a mosque in the wealthy Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Hills, is hosting an "Interfaith Prayers and Symbolic Walkout Vigil" April 20 that feeds off of the anti-gun fervor created in the wake of the Parkland High School mass shooting that killed 17 students in February.

The employee says it’s true – and that she had read it on her Twitter the previous evening. After the black guy gets his free coffee, he gives it away to a stranger:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-HrbZ3cpwgIt turns out that the black guy is a conservative named Bryan Sharpe.

    There has been some criminal activity discovered linked to the Clinton-Bush Hurricane Katrina Fund and Clinton Foundation. According to sources the Katrina Fund is missing large amounts of money and should be investigated for the missing funds. The entire Clinton-Bush Hurricane Katrina Fund was set up to help the victims, and operated by Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. But it looks like the innocent victims were stollen from by the ones claiming to help them in the first place. Typical actions from the Clintons… We shouldn’t expect anything different I guess. Their Foundation definitely tells us a different story...

    The Federalist ^ | April 18th 2018 | Chad Felix Greene
    Columbus, Indiana hosted its first LGBT pride festival April 14, and by all accounts, it was a success. The event was planned and spearheaded by a high school student named Erin Bailey who began planning the event as a school project. More than 1,000 people reportedly attended, and the town’s population of 47,000 welcomed them generously with rainbow banners in the streets. The Human Rights Campaign, an LGBT rights organization, supported, promoted and attended the event as well. When the event was first announced in late March of this year, it received recognition from dozens of international media outlets that...

    Harvard Law School Is Bogus ^ | 05/25/2013 | staff
    The slime ball has the audacity to judge Trump from his perch on CNN?! 1. In 1986 Toobin took “The Oath,” marrying fellow Harvard student Amy McIntosh and promising to be faithful to her. They have two teenage children. 2. It did not take long for Toobin — who has been called “The Tiger Woods of Legal Journalism” because he shares Tiger’s “weakness for women and wandering eye” — to break that oath. 3. By the mid-1990s, Toobin was aggressively hitting on women, using “disgusting, ” “shockingly sexual come-on lines.” According to one of the women (apparently book editor and...

One high ranking official in the Justice Department called it a sweeping “highly illegal” scheme to ensure Hillary Clinton’s election to the White House. “This was clearly a scheme using Justice (Department) resources and State (Department)...

    Whoever was surprised by the hate-fest against the National Rifle Association and conservative Americans in general that followed the Parkland, Florida school shooting must not have been paying attention. Over the past half-century, a ruling class formed by our uniformly leftist educational system and occupying the commanding heights of corporate life, governmental bureaucracies, the media, etc. accuses its targets of everything from murder and terrorism to culpable psycho-social disorders (racism, sexism, and so forth). Leaders, marchers, and rioters speak from identical scripts. They do not try to persuade. They strengthen their own side’s vehemence. They restrict opponents from speaking on...

    While President Trump has talked about gaps in our immigration system with regard to the border wall, the refugee program, the diversity visa lottery and chain migration, he has yet to say anything about what may be the most dangerous open gate of all for Islamic radicals. The "R" class of visas for so-called religious workers apparently flies completely under the radar of the Trump administration. Shockingly, the number of such visas issued grew during Trump's first year in office and was 3.7 percent higher than under President Obama's final year.

    Reflections on Illinois roadways and the speed bumps of the General Assembly... When you or I walk outside in the spring, and see that the winter has left behind a few reminders on our driveways – a pothole, a chip, a crack – we check the finances, and perhaps we have the driveway completely repaved… …But much more likely, we head to the local hardware store, pick up a bag of concrete mix or blacktop patch, and get to work on our hands and knees with our trusty trowels. While fully repaving the driveway is certainly a “nice-to-have,” it’s hardly...

Decades before McCabe cleared Hillary in the FBI’s controversial email investigation. From recent revelations, it appears the two families — the McCabe’s and the Clinton’s — have a personal and professional alliance spanning three decades.
