  • Tighter Regulation Would Probably Make Facebook More Profitable

    Here's a bet: Congress will end up "cracking down" on Facebook with "tough" regulations that Facebook will probably protest quite vigorously. And then Facebook profits will go up. Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of Facebook, withstood two days of questioning in Congress this week. You could tell Zuckerberg took it very seriously, not least because he shed his traditional T-shirt and hoodie in favor of a grown-up suit. Again and again, he was asked whether he was opposed to regulation. "You embrace regulation?" asked Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). "I think the real question, as the internet becomes more important...

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has named a new acting deputy of his own. The Department of Justice on Tuesday announced Edward O'Callaghan will be the acting principal associate deputy attorney general. O'Callaghan will replace Robert Hur, who is taking Rosenstein's old job as the U.S. Attorney in the District of Maryland. O'Callaghan's new position is key, as it will involve oversight of the FBI's probe of Russian election meddling and any ties to the Trump campaign. O'Callaghan has been serving as the principal deputy assistant attorney general for the DOJ's National Security Division. "Edward O'Callaghan has served the Department...
  • If Fox News cancels Laura Ingraham, it might as well close the network

    Legal Insurrection ^ | April 1, 2018 | William A. Jacobson
    There is an all out assault in progress trying to drive Laura Ingraham off television and radio, led by Parkland student and newly-minted media star David Hogg. Ingraham is a target, superficially, because she mocked Hogg as a whiner in a tweet after he publicly griped that several colleges had rejected him. On the scale of internet insults, saying that someone is “whining” doesn’t even register it’s so mild.

    School shooting survivor and gun control activist David Hogg doubled down on his refusal to accept an apology from Fox News host Laura Ingraham in an interview with CNN on Saturday, as advertisers of her show announced they were ending their relationships with her after she mocked the teenager on Twitter for not getting into his top colleges. The senior student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas described Ingraham’s apology as disgusting, saying “she basically tried promoting her show after apologizing to me.”

    Strolling one afternoon near Manhattan’s Sixth Avenue and West 34th Street, I spotted two tourists with their faces nestled in a map. They looked hopelessly lost. “Can I help you?” I asked. Thoroughly flummoxed, they pleaded, “Where’s the Empire State Building?” I pointed straight up, one block east, and said: “It’s right there!” Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team resemble those hapless travelers. They scour their visitors’ guide in vain for any trace of Team Trump’s alleged Russian collusion. Meanwhile, just steps away, the Clintons’ Russian-collusion skyscraper soars into the clouds. Although they started sniffing around in July 2016,...

    Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said his department would “use every lawful tool we have to push back against” Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf for warning illegal immigrants of a raid by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Sessions said, “This is a radical ideology. It’s contrary to the American law. The supreme law of the land is American immigration law, and it must be enforced else we will just have open borders, and that cannot be.”

    Democratic strateist Doug Schoen, who worked on Bill Clinton's 1996 campaign and Hillary clinton's 2008 campaign, said that, given the allegations of "rigging" the primaries against Bernie Sanders by the DNC and new revelations about the Clinton email and Uranium One scandals, it is time for a "special prosecutor" to look into the entire mess. Schoen, a Harvard Law School and Oxford University graduate, added that "the entire Democratic Party stinks from the head down, the whole process," and "everyone really has a stain on their hand." Schoen made his remarks on the Nov. 6 edition of Hannity, where he...

    Chris Matthews has a new thrill up his leg . . . On this evening’s Hardball, Matthews fantasized the possibility of Trump campaign aides being hit with RICO charges. RICO is the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, adopted by Congress in 1970 for purposes of combating the Mafia. MSNBC “terrorism analyst” Malcolm Nance got the ball rolling by suggesting that Trump aides might have been paid Russian agents. Matthews then upped the ante: “That’s when I begin to think RICO. And a RICO charge. Anyway, and running a criminal operation, that they’re all doing it together.”Get the rest of...

    Weeks after Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico, the island remains in crisis. Eighty three percent of people in Puerto Rico don’t have power and thirty five percent don’t have access to clean water. The death toll currently stands at 48 but is likely to keep rising in the coming weeks. Washington has responded to this crisis with billions in immediate disaster assistance, helping the cash-strapped island afford its basic expenses after tax revenue has all but dried up. This financial commitment isn’t going to end anytime soon: Experts suggest the final cost could exceed $100 billion.

    By filing a lawsuit against the activists in U.S. District Court in North Dakota on Tuesday, the Dallas-based oil and gas company Energy Transfer Partners became the second firm to accuse Greenpeace of breaking a federal organized crime law used to try members of the mafia, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO Act. The Obama administration’s decision to halt construction followed months of protests from the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and other Native American groups over concerns the 1,172-mile pipeline, meant to deliver Bakken shale oil to Midwestern refineries, would imperil drinking water and disturb sacred burial...

  • Mongols Case Forever And Ever

    06/06/2017 3:35:45 PM PDT · by Elderberry · 14 replies
    The ironic war the United States of America has waged against the Mongols Motorcycle Club is now in its 20th year. It began as an offshoot of investigations in Los Angeles by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives into the Vagos, Sundowners and Hells Angels Motorcycle Clubs. Like the Hundred Years War in the 14th Century, the Mongols War can be divided into distinct phases. In the beginning, in about 1998 when the Mongols were comparatively short handed, the ATF managed to infiltrate an undercover agent named William Queen – his name in the club was Billy “Slow...

    Independent journalist George Webb says that after President Trump fired FBI director James Comey, longtime Democrat operative and Clinton loyalist John Podesta is in a frenzy to unload $40 billion from the Clinton Foundation — by buying up art, gold and diamonds, and spreading them out all over the world — before those assets are seized by the new FBI director. John Podesta was the chair of Hillary’s failed 2016 presidential campaign. Before that, he was Counselor to the President in the Obama administration, and White House Chief of Staff in the Bill Clinton administration. Beginning at the 0:30 mark...
