    Slate ^ | Aug. 19, 2018 | Mark Joseph Stern
    The White House counsel has figured out how to appear transparent without giving Mueller the information he needs. Has Don McGahn turned on Donald Trump? On Saturday, the New York Times published a lengthy story suggesting as much, hinting that the White House counsel may have reached the limits of his loyalty to the president. Reporters Maggie Haberman and Michael Schmidt detail McGahn’s assistance to Mueller’s Russia probe, including 30 hours of voluntary interviews with investigators. Trump, they write, allowed McGahn to speak to Mueller’s team, though the president may not have grasped the extent of his cooperation.

    In a searing speech from the pulpit of a black church, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told a Brooklyn congregation on Sunday that Donald Trump is a “slick salesman” who fooled many people in this country, but the Democrat said the Republican president hasn’t fooled New Yorkers. Cuomo spoke at Brooklyn’s First Baptist Church of Crown Heights after a week of criticism for saying America “was never that great” during a bill signing. New York Republicans have demanded he apologize, and Trump tweeted that Cuomo was having a “total meltdown.” The governor seemed to counter what many observers considered a...

    President Trump’s former personal lawyer is being investigated over more than $20 million in loans to taxi companies owned by him and his family — and could face charges within the next two weeks, according to a new report Sunday. Michael Cohen is also being probed over deals to buy the silence of women who claimed they had affairs with Trump, The New York Times reported. Federal authorities are in the final stage of their investigation and are weighing charges including bank and tax fraud and violations of campaign finance law, people familiar with the matter told the paper. Prosecutors...
  • Asia Argento, Who Accused Weinstein, Made Deal With Her Own Accuser

    The Failing New York Times ^ | 8/19/2018 | Kim Severson
    The Italian actress and director Asia Argento was among the first women in the movie business to publicly accuse the producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault. She became a leading figure in the #MeToo movement. Her boyfriend, the culinary television star Anthony Bourdain, eagerly joined the fight. But in the months that followed her revelations about Mr. Weinstein last October, Ms. Argento quietly arranged to pay $380,000 to her own accuser: Jimmy Bennett, a young actor and rock musician who said she had sexually assaulted him in a California hotel room years earlier, when he was only two months past...

    Inflammatory: Michelle Goldberg of The New York Times perfectly embodies why the vast majority of Americans do not trust the ‘mainstream’ establishment media, let alone her hack rag of a newspaper. During an appearance on MSNBC Friday, she actually said that POTUS Donald Trump would have no problem rounding people up and murdering them because he’s such an authoritarian.

    New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg argued with her fellow panelists on MSNBC’s "Meet the Press Daily" Friday about whether President Donald Trump is the leader of the free world or an aspiring despot. RealClearPolitics reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns was criticizing Trump’s communication strategy when she called him "the leader of the free world." Goldberg interjected to say that, actually, German Chancellor Angela Merkel is the leader of the free world. "He’s not the leader of the free world, but, sorry," Goldberg said. "By default he’s the leader of the free world," Commentary magazine editor John Podhoretz replied. "Angela Merkel is...

    Cara Mund, whose reign as Miss America comes to a close next month, accused the pageant’s parent organization of systematically silencing her in a letter made public Friday. It was the latest setback for the organization, which has struggled to reinvent itself after a string of scandals. In a missive that ran over 3,000 words long, Ms. Mund said that the pageant’s leadership had “reduced me, marginalized me, and essentially erased me in my role as Miss America in subtle and not-so-subtle ways on a daily basis.” She went on to say that members of the organization had prevented her...
  • Twitter Verifies Sarah Jeong Without Making Her Delete Racist Posts

    Even though Twitter forbids racist “epithets,” “tropes,” and “other content that degrades someone,” the posts remain on the platform. In fact, Twitter specifically describes “dehumanizing language” to be against its rules — like comparing people to dogs. Twitter has stripped conservative accounts of their verification on numerous occasions, and in November, the social network stopped taking requests for account verification, meaning that Twitter has to now verify accounts selectively. Tommy Robinson, Laura Loomer were stripped of their verification amongst many others, while WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been repeatedly denied verification, despite the fact that he has over 780,000 followers...

    A coalition of news outlets, including CNN, The New York Times, BuzzFeed and The Washington Post, want the federal judge presiding over the Paul Manafort trial to unseal the names and addresses of the jurors deliberating on the case. The judge, T.S. Ellis III, agreed to hear arguments about the disclosure during a hearing scheduled for 2 p.m. Friday. “A thirsty press is essential to a free county,” Ellis said in court when addressing the media companies’ motion. He also urged the news outlets, which are being represented by the firm Ballard Spahr, to appeal his decision should he rule...

    The anti-Trump cable news network has a long history of doxxing threats and harassment. In a motion filed in federal court on Thursday, CNN and several other media outlets requested that the court release the names and home addresses of all jurors in the Paul Manafort fraud case. Jurors haven not yet rendered a verdict on any of the 18 charges against Manafort, who briefly served as President Donald Trump’s campaign manager in 2016. The motion — filed on behalf of CNN, Washington Post, BuzzFeed, POLITICO, New York Times, NBC Universal, and the Associated Press — asks the court to...

    In Michigan's state Senate race, Democrat Rep. Bettie Cook Scott had the perfect vote-getting pitch in her primary race against fellow Democrat, Rep. Stephanie Chang: "Don't vote for the ching-chong." According to Detroit's Metro Times: Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as "ching-chang" and "the ching-chong" to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday's election.  She's also said to have called one of Chang's campaign volunteers an "immigrant," saying "you don't belong here" and "I want you out of my country." Chang and Scott were running in the Democratic primary for state Sen. District 1.  Chang won the election...

    Under the pretense of journalism, reporter Maggie Astor provided some public relations with the valuable New York Times-imprimatur for the children’s crusade for gun control (and a laundry list of made-up left-wing issues like “systems of oppression”) in Thursday’s lead National story, “Speakers, Students, Activists, Survivors – On the road with teenagers from the March for Our Lives.” Both the teen activists and the supposed journalist skipped over how the massacres of students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida actually transpired, partly due to dereliction by both the Broward County sheriff’s department and the police deputy assigned...

    Talk about blowing yourself up! That’s what New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo did yesterday by saying, “America was never that great.” He went on: “We have not reached greatness. We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged.” You can hear Cuomo for yourself in the video above. That is a ready-made ad for Republicans if he should ever run for President! Even the “Morning Joe” crew was astounded. They mocked Cuomo for being so dumb as to say this. But you know what – this is what many on the Left believe but are not honest enough to...

    The Billion Dollar Homeless Scam The more we spend, the worse it gets. August 16, 2018 Daniel Greenfield New York City will be spending $2.06 billion on its Department of Homeless Services. There are 61,421 homeless people in the city which is spending $33,539 per homeless person. That’s only a little short of the starting salary of an FDNY firefighter at $39,000. More money will be spent on the homeless than on the firefighters who save New Yorkers from burning buildings. The FDNY will have to make do with $2.04 billion, and the health department with $1.6 billion. That’s impressive...

Dorsey said, “I feel any suspension, whether it be a permanent or a temporary one, makes someone think about their actions and their behaviors,” Dorsey said. In the same week that Jack Dorsey is lecturing on “appropriate actions and behavior” Twitter just certified racist New York Times writer Sarah Jeong with a blue check mark. And now this Twitter shut down two top Iranian activist’s pages today.

    The New York Jets wanted to partner with Blue Lives Matter this season, but the pro-cop group stiff-armed the team’s advances Tuesday — claiming the NFL doesn’t respect cops, and flagging the Jets for signing a player who once posted an image of an officer’s throat being slashed on social media. “With the NFL season right around the corner, there is no better time to open up a conversation about how your business/organization can benefit from a partnership with the New York Jets,” reads a Tuesday email from the Jets’ Anthony Bulak to Blue Lives Matter founder Joe Imperatrice.
