    But now a Republican lawyer and lobbyist wants Mueller to add another matter to his docket: the 2016 murder of Seth Rich, a 27-year-old employee of the Democratic National Committee....“We’ve ruled out that this a street crime," says Jack Burkman, the Republican operative who is urging Mueller to use his newly impaneled grand jury to investigate the Rich murder. In his letter to the special counsel, which was sent on Tuesday, Burkman argues that Rich’s murder “may be the ‘missing link’ that connects otherwise incongruent events relating to Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential election.” Burkman says in the letter...

    A retired U.S. Marine Corps general who last served as vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff pleaded guilty on Monday in a federal court to making false statements to the FBI during an investigation into leaks of classified information. Four-star General James Cartwright was questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2012 over a book written by New York Times reporter David Sanger, which exposed a malicious computer software program known as "Stuxnet" designed to disrupt Iran's nuclear program. Cartwright also in 2012 confirmed classified information about an unnamed country to Daniel Klaidman, then a reporter for...

    President Donald Trump brought his bombastic politics to a Boy Scouts event Monday in West Virginia, drawing cheers from the children gathered at the event and prompting comparisons between his rousing rhetoric and Nazi youth rallies from some liberal activists and journalists. The president, the first sitting U.S. commander-in-chief to address the group since George W. Bush, used his speech to slam the "fake news," demand loyalty from administration officials and advocate for the overhaul of federal health care. He spoke to about 40,000 people at the Boy Scouts of America 2017 National Scout Jamboree. "As the scout law says,...
  • DID TRUMP JUST LOSE HIS WAR WITH CNN? POLL FINDS MORE PEOPLE TRUST THE NETWORK THAN THE PRESIDENT

    07/05/2017 5:37:36 PM PDT · by matt04 · 115 replies
    Donald Trump may not be winning hearts and minds in his ongoing war with the media, with a recent poll showing more people trust CNN than the president. Trump openly despises CNN and often refers to the network-and many others-as ‘fake news,’ but the majority of people questioned in a poll by Survey Monkey trust information from the news network over the president. “The fight... between the White House and major media outlets has made the question of truthfulness just as partisan-tinged as health care or other policies,” SurveyMonkey's Jon Cohen told Axios. Of those 4,695 people questioned between June...
  • Seth Rich Update: DNC Staffer Murdered by Serial Killer, Not in Botched Robbery, As Report Claims

    06/20/2017 9:05:37 PM PDT · by Cubs Fan · 50 replies
    Note the title is deliberately misleading-- the report said murder for hire or serial killing The Profiling Project, based in Arlington, Virginia, consists of around 20 volunteers who are current and former George Washington University forensic-psychology graduate students and instructors. The report states that Rich’s July 2016 “death does not appear to be a random homicide” or “a robbery gone bad,” as police had suggested. Instead, the report says, the “death was more likely committed by a hired killer or serial murderer,” and that the killer is likely still at large. “The person folks [should be] looking for and considering...

    A recent National Security Agency memo documents a phone call in which U.S. President Donald Trump pressures agency chief Admiral Mike Rogers to state publicly that there is no evidence of collusion between his campaign and Russia, say reports. The memo was written by Rick Ledgett, the former deputy director of the NSA, sources familiar with the memo told The Wall Street Journal. Ledgett stepped down from his job this spring. The memo said Trump questioned the American intelligence community findings that Russia interfered in the 2016 election. American intelligence agencies issued a report early this year that found Russian...

    Vanity Fair contributing editor Kurt Eichenwald posted a picture to Twitter of his computer desktop that users noticed included an open tab of cartoon porn. Vanity Fair editor Kurt Eichenwald posted a photo to his Twitter page Wednesday night to display hate mail he recently received. Unknown to the editor, a tab open in his web browser in the background of the photo showed that he had been viewing hentai, or pornographic anime. Eichenwald claimed that he had been viewing the explicit material because he and his children had been debating with Eichenwald’s wife over the existence of “tentacle porn”:...

Like most ppl now, I don’t watch it.” with a link to a CNN article that shows Carlson losing his ratings battle to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. He then tweeted a picture of an anti-Semitic flyer (even though he isn’t Jewish) he personally received and blamed Tucker Carlson for it. “Since being on your show,” he tweeted directly to Carlson, “I get things like this a lot, most always from ppl mentioning u.

Eichenwald first tweeted a photo of a sign someone allegedly sent to his house that read, “DANGER: EVIL JEWS IN CHARGE.” When one Twitter user tried to photoshop the sign, Eichenwald tweeted another picture of it in front of his laptop screen. The problem? Hr forgot to close a pretty disgusting tab on his computer first. To the right of a tab that reads, “Tucker Carlson’s downward spiral,” Eichenwald has another tab...

    The State Department announced Wednesday that it has added two people to the federal list of designated terrorists, one of whom was once detained at Guantanamo Bay military prison. Ayrat Nasimovich Vakhitov, one of the newly added jihadists, was a former detainee at Guantanamo for less than two years from June 2002 until February 2004 before being turned over to Russian officials in his home country. Turkish authorities recently arrested Vahkitov in connection with the June 29 suicide bombings at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport that killed 42 people. While no group has claimed responsibility for the attack, U.S. and Turkish authorities...

    Kurt Eichenwald, a senior writer for Newsweek, took to Twitter Friday and wished that Republicans who voted for the American Health Care Act see a family member suffer from a serious illness, lose their health insurance, and die. “As one w/ preexisting condition: I hope every GOPr who voted 4 Trumpcare sees a family member get a long term condition, lose insurance, & die,” Eichenwald said in a series of tweets that have since been deleted. After being confronted by Twitter users, Eichenwald doubled down and insisted that Republican lawmakers’ family members be “tortured.”

    “Why Amnesty Makes Sense” reads the cover of a June 2007 issue of Time magazine, teasing an immigration story inside. “Is Your Baby Racist?” asks a 2009 Newsweek cover. And “Gender Revolution” blares a January 2017 National Geographic cover featuring a “transgender child.” These three magazine covers, and many others like them, have something in common: They all reflect the increasingly irrational “progressive” worldview, according to journalist and best-selling author David Kupelian.

    Russian authorities busted an international arms operation Thursday as police staged raids across the nation, finding a number of firearms allegedly smuggled from the U.S. Russia's federal police agency released a video showing what appeared to be numerous arrests of men and women allegedly involved in the arms-dealing ring. According to RT, raids were staged in the cities of Yoshkar-Ola, Irkuts, Ulan-Ude and Moscow, resulting in the seizure of 19 firearms and an assortment of matching components, magazines and ammunition. Weapons including AR-15 rifles and pistols manufactured by Glock and Colt were among those found that were manufactured in the...

    Contrary to some reports, President Trump is entitled to see any records related to the surveillance of him and his associates as “consumer-in-chief” of U.S.  intelligence, a Justice Department lawyer familiar with national security procedures says. That would include FBI and Justice Department (DOJ) applications for surveillance warrants to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, or FISC. “I don't see how DOJ and FBI can refuse... and the president has the authority to declassify whatever he wants...,” the official told Newsweek on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak with the media. The White House does not need to...

    Excuse me, Newsweek, but who was ultimately responsible for establishing the Manzanar internment camp along with the other such camps which interned Japanese U.S. residents along with Japanese-American citizens during World War II? If you read this February 15 article by Newsweek senior writer Alexander Nazaryan you would think President Donald Trump who was born a year after that war ended was somehow responsible rather than the real culprit, President Franklin D. Roosevelt.In fact, Nazaryan mentions Trump 26 times in the story while FDR appears only 3 times. Most bizarrely, FDR is compared favorably to Trump in the one time Nazaryan really...

    Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Newsweek writer! Newsweek senior writer Kurt Eichenwald admits that President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, is "eminently qualified." However, he angrily proclaims that this nomination must be stopped because of a need for vengeance. Eichenwald doesn't try to hide that as an ulterior motive. In fact, he absolutely obsesses over it.

    Should the mainstream media lead, to borrow a term from religion, a great awakening? Yes, in a sense, suggested longtime journalist Steven Waldman in a Thursday Washington Monthly piece. “Donald Trump and his campaign have pushed the idea that each of us has our own truth, or ‘alternative facts,’” wrote Waldman. “Suddenly I feel like journalists are the most religious people in America. I don’t mean that journalists are suddenly enamored with the supernatural, but rather that we’ve re-embraced the idea that there’s a thing called ‘truth’ — an absolute value that lives above and apart from the world of...

    The garbage generated by the left-leaning media is so mind-numbingly insipid that one wonders how publishers can sleep at night. It's simply embarrassing Welcome to 2017, and congratulations on making it through the Obama years! In a few weeks, the adults will be back in charge and - hopefully - we’ll begin the long hard work of undoing the last eight years. Unfortunately, if you’re in the media, you should know that your industry may have crossed the credibility Rubicon. 2016 was a complete disaster for American “journalists.” In defiance of all logic, in denial of reality, they went deep...
