    onday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) doubled down on his previous claims that he has seen “evidence of collusion.” Swalwell said, “Chairman Schiff and I were always clear that we have seen evidence of collusion. Now what Mr. Mueller can’t prove beyond a reasonable doubt, looks like there’s certainly a difference between the evidence we saw in plain sight and some of the evidence we saw in a classified space. But if the president truly believes he’s exonerated, then he should be the first person to roll out and give to the public the full Mueller report. If...

    A mystery man with massive wealth and power retained a powerful law firm to keep the records sealed in a case involving Jeffrey Epstein. (See Politico here, and the Miami Herald’s report here.) After the Second Circuit Court Court of Appeals, in a lawsuit involving investigative Julie Brown of the Miami Herald and others, signaled it was prepared to order an entire vault of records unsealed, the mystery man made the unusual move of filing what’s known as an amicus curiae brief anonymously. Latin for “friend of the court,” an amicus curiae brief is only supposed to be filed when...

    The Pride Center and LGBTQ+ Multicultural Support Network at Oregon State University posted that they do not want a student veteran group to occupy a student lounge. A letter co-penned by both groups stated that “the communities that our organizations serve are vulnerable to the ideological and practical consequences" of letting the student veteran group in the center. The Pride Center has since deleted the post.

    The Intercept ^ | 3/22/19 | Akela Lacy
    The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee warned political strategists and vendors Thursday night that if they support candidates mounting primary challenges against incumbent House Democrats, the party will cut them off from business. The news was officially announced Friday morning, paired with a statement on the committee’s commitment to diversity in consulting — “which, obviously, is just to give themselves cover,” a Democratic political consultant who learned of it Thursday told The Intercept. The consultant asked for anonymity given their relationship with the DCCC, and the party organization’s professed strategy of blacklisting firms that don’t fall in line.

  • Why Did Former AG Sally Yates Lie About Michael Flynn Being Compromised by Russia?

    GP ^ | 03/24/19
    In May 2017 Former Attorney General Sally Yates went before Congress and lied about General Michael Flynn being compromised by Russia. Yates knew General Michael Flynn was not compromised. She lied anyway.  The Deep State was listening in on all of General Flynn’s conversations. They knew Russia had nothing on him. They knew this was a lie.We also know that a Deep State spy set up General Flynn. And Flynn not only reported his trip to Russia before he went, he also took training on how to act and then provided the intelligence community information upon his return on what...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | March 21, 2019 | Steve Cortes
    News anchors and pundits have repeated lies about Donald Trump and race so often that some of these narratives seem true, even to Americans who embrace the fruits of the president’s policies. The most pernicious and pervasive of these lies is the “Charlottesville Hoax,” the fake-news fabrication that he described the neo-Nazis who rallied in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017 as “fine people.”

  • Elizabeth Warren’s attack on Electoral College pandering at its worst

    Boston Herald ^ | 3/19/19 | Joe Battenfeld
    U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s blatantly partisan push to eliminate the Electoral College would disenfranchise vast swaths of America and make liberal cities the Kingpins of presidential politics. Warren’s new push for a popular vote is pandering at its worst — dangling an idea that would unabashedly aid the Democrat-controlled coasts of the country and turn the country into virtual one-party rule. Switching to a popular vote would only widen the current cultural divide that is gripping the nation, pitting the East and West coasts against the Heartland and rural America. The cities of Los Angeles and New York already decide...

    What in the world has happened to us? Once upon a time, America had the greatest system of education on the entire planet, and our people were sharp, capable and extremely well informed. Sadly, none of those things are true anymore. In 2006, Mike Judge made a movie entitled “Idiocracy” in which an individual of below average intelligence wakes up after being asleep for 500 years thanks to a military hibernation experiment. When he wakes up, he quickly realizes that he is now the smartest man in America, and that is not a good thing. The film became an instant...

    Today, the Lantos Foundation and the Middle East Media Institute (MEMRI) published a report entitled The Hater Next Door: Online Incitement Against Minorities in America. This truly horrifying report examines online hatred and incitement in the United States between November 2018 and February 2019 against minority communities including Jews, People of Color, LGBTQ and others. The report exposes the vicious reality of online hatred that is thriving within our own borders, fueled by neo-Nazis, white supremacists, racists and fascists that are not only fellow Americans, but are very often members of our own communities. Unlike generations past, these haters next...

    First lady Nancy Reagan — who was no fan of Barbara Bush — personally removed Vice President George H.W. Bush and his wife from the guest list for the 1985 royal visit by Prince Charles and Lady Diana, according to a new book. USA Today’s DC bureau chief Susan Page offers the tidbit in her upcoming “The Matriarch: Barbara Bush and the Making of an American Dynasty,” according to Axios, which obtained an advance copy. A draft of the guest list for the Nov. 9, 1985, dinner, one of the biggest social events of the Reagan presidency, shows the Bush...
