    Peter Fonda. In armpit-to-armpit black leather. Like we’d expect filmdom’s quintessential bad boy in taupe chiffon? He’s in “Boundaries,” a Sony Pictures Classic dog movie — not meaning it’s lousy . . . meaning it’s about dogs
  • Mueller Has Strzok Out

    American Spectator ^ | June 20, 2018 | George Neumayr
    The other night MSNBC ran a fawning documentary about James Comey. It was full of howlers about the unfathomable depths of his “integrity.” None of the clips age well, but one in particular captured the utter lunacy of Comey serving as Mueller’s presumed chief witness — a clip in which Comey accuses Trump of “lies, plain and simple” for describing the FBI as “poorly led” and in “disarray.” Here is a former FBI director categorizing Trump’s opinion, and a manifestly correct one at that, as “lies.” That’s the fatuous, un-rigorous level on which Mueller’s probe is proceeding. His forthcoming report...
  • Veep Mike Pence campaigned for Scott Wagner in Philly. A Philly lawmaker gave him the finger

    With national attention focused on the forced separation of families at America's southern border, this week isn't a very good week to be a Trump administration official (not that most are, of course). So it's not surprising that Veep Mike Pence was greeted by vocal protests when he swung through Philadelphia on Tuesday night to campaign on behalf of Republican governor candidate Scott Wagner. Some, such as state Rep. Brian Sims, D-Philadelphia, were slightly more emphatic in their opposition.

  • Feds reportedly subpoena National Enquirer publisher in Michael Cohen probe

    The Washington Times ^ | June 20, 2018 | Jeff Mordock
    The publisher of the National Enquirer has been subpoenaed for financial records in the Michael Cohen probe, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday evening. According to the Journal, Manhattan federal prosecutors are interested in the Enquirer’s payment of $150,000 to former Playboy model Karen McDougal. Citing “people familiar with the matter,” prosecutors in the Cohen case are investigating whether the payment for the rights to her story about a purported affair with then-TV star Donald Trump constitutes a campaign-finance law violation. The National Enquirer never ran the story, prompting speculation that Mr. Cohen, with the cooperation of Enquirer publisher American...

    Branford College residence, Yale University Earlier this week, I addressed the national hissy fit over separating children from adults who claim to be their parents at U.S. borders. I noted what happened before the U.S. started doing that. Under Obama, we unwittingly handed thousands of children to slave labor operators or sex traffickers. Because they claimed to be their parents. Even Obama felt constrained to stop doing that. He put in place the policy which Trump is now enforcing. Bush-era laws and crackpot court decisions won’t let the government hold children with their parents while we evaluate their asylum...

    CHARLESTON — Suspended West Virginia Supreme Court Justice Allen Loughry was arrested by the FBI Wednesday morning and will face 22 federal charges after a grand jury meeting in Charleston indicted him Monday. Loughry will face charges including mail fraud, wire fraud, witness tampering and lying to federal agents. The indictments had been sealed and weren't acted upon until Wednesday, when federal agents showed up at his house at about 7:30 a.m. U.S. Attorney Mike Stuart announced the charges during a press conference at the Robert C. Byrd Federal Courthouse in Charleston.

    The Democrat nominee for Kansas attorney general displays a poster in her law office of Wonder Woman putting a lasso around a police officer’s neck, and, as a result, is facing pressure from her own Party to drop out of the race. Law enforcement groups criticized the candidate, attorney Sarah Swain, for displaying a poster promoting violence against police officers. When state Democrats took note of the backlash from law enforcement, they swiftly condemned Swain and tried to distance themselves from her. “We strongly condemn and reject any depiction of violence against law enforcement, including the image from Swain’s law...

    A man is facing a serious charge after deputies say he threatened Congressman Brian Mast's children. A federal document filed with the U.S. District Court states Laurence Wayne Key called Rep. Mast's office in Washington, D.C. on Monday morning. An intern told investigators when he answered the phone the caller said, "I'm going to find congressman's kids and kill them. If you're going to separate kids at the border, I'm going to kill his kids. Don't try to find me because you won't." Investigators found the phone number belonged to Key, who lives in Stuart. Documents claim Key has called...

    Metro UK ^ | June 20, 2018 | by Rob Waugh
    There’s a ‘type’ when it comes to climate change denial it turns out – and it’s a pretty simple one: old, white and racist. Researchers found that American voters with the highest levels of racial resentment were far more likely to dispute the idea of man-made climate change. Researcher Salil Benegal at DePauw University analysed data from American National Election Studies – and found that Republicans with high racial resentment scores were 84% likely to disagree with man-made climate change. Previous Pew research has shown that climate change deniers tend to be old and white. The scores were measured on...

    Rage Against the Machine frontman Tom Morello took to Twitter to propose the formation of a “Children’s Liberation Army,” made of “disgruntled vets” to take on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. In a tweet on Tuesday, the 54-year-old suggested that “people of good conscience” and “former vets” join together to “take on” the government agency. “Ok people of good conscience & disgruntled vets I’m thinking of putting together a Children’s Liberation Army to take on ICE,” he wrote. “WHOS IN? Morello’s idea comes amid ongoing outrage from Hollywood and other left-leaning groups and organizations over the crackdown at...

    As former leaders of our parties in the United States Senate, we know what it takes to achieve a bipartisan breakthrough in Congress. For all the talk of discord in Washington, we see the possibility of finding common ground on a divisive issue. As surprising as it may sound, climate change offers an opportunity for both parties to come together and deliver a victory - and cash dividends - to the American people. Congress should approve legislation to place a meaningful fee on carbon-dioxide emissions that ripples through all sectors of our economy, and return the revenues it generates to...
