    Feds: Al Qaeda Mata Hari Wanted To Poison Pres. Carter Federal Sources: Siddique Wanted to Use Biological Agents to Contaminate Pres. Carter's Water By RICHARD ESPOSITO and BRIAN ROSS August 13, 2008 Long before Aafia Siddique was arrested in Afghanistan last month, allegedly in possession of a list of New York targets and chem-bio weapons information, she had allegedly developed a plot, however improbable or amateurish, to kill Presidents Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush and to attack the White House. Siddique plotted to use weapons that included biological agents to contaminate former president Carter's water, according to multiple federal...

    Back around Thanksgiving time, we looked at some groundbreaking reporting from the Washington Free Beacon where they exposed some less than media-neutral activities by one member of the press. Janell Ross, a political reporter for the Washington Post, was found to have participated in a highly secretive, big dollar fundraising and strategy conference for the Democrats. To be clear, Ross was not there reporting on the conference as part of her job. She wrote no articles about it and the WaPo said they didn’t even know that she had gone. She was a participant in the event, even sitting in...

    ABC News president James Goldston excoriated staff Monday over Brian Ross' major error on a report about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, and announced that Ross, the network's chief investigative reporter, will no longer cover stories related to President Trump. Goldston also told staffers that the network was conducting a "full review" of the error and its aftermath. Ross had initially reported Friday morning that Flynn was prepared to testify that Donald Trump as a candidate had instructed him to reach out to the Russians. Ross said more than seven hours later on "World News Tonight" that his information...
  • Joy Behar: Yeah, I Totally Jumped The Gun Spreading That Shoddy ABC Report About Russian Collusion

    So, The View finally addressed their embarrassing celebratory reaction to news that Donald Trump instructed ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to contact the Russians. It was under the impression that this occurred when Donald Trump was a candidate during the 2016 election. Cue the champagne popping on the Left. Here’s the smoking gun, right? Nope. ABC News’ Brian Ross, who reported on this story, botched it. It was President-elect Trump instructing Mr. Flynn to establish your usual connections with foreign governments from a new incoming administration. If Mr. Ross’ name doesn’t sound familiar, he was the guy who reported that...

    Once again, a supposed big break in the drive to destroy President Trump over “collusion” with the Russians during the 2016 campaign stands exposed as nothing more than bad reporting. Plus, the professionalism of the FBI looks compromised by anti-Trump bias. The media went berserk Friday on news that former Trump confidante Mike Flynn had copped a plea deal with special counsel Bob Mueller. All the usual suspects launched an orgy of speculation on what beans Flynn “must” have spilled. It all went into overdrive when ABC’s Brian Ross reported that Flynn had been instructed to reach out to Moscow...
  • ABC News Suspends Brian Ross for 4 Weeks Without Pay: ‘Effective Immediately’

    ABC News has announced that Brian Ross would be suspended for four weeks without pay “effective immediately.” “It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience – these are our core principles. We fell far short of that yesterday,” the network said in a statement on Saturday. “Effective immediately, Brian Ross will be suspended for four weeks without pay.” Ross came under considerable fire on Friday after he erroneously reported on live television that then-candidate Donald Trump had instructed Michael Flynn to make contact with the Russians.

    Hugh Ross Church Fathers: Old earther admits “poor quality” research by other old-earthers Published: 13 July 2017 (GMT+10) From time to time we receive emails from devotees of Dr Hugh Ross, probably today’s leading advocate of old-earth creationism. Please note that we take no pleasure in highlighting the following matters. But for the sake of integrity in the creation movement (the brand of creation promoted by Ross is called ‘Progressive Creationism’), we need to address challenges by devotees of Ross as if he is a source of infallible wisdom.

    Oh, this guy is too good at this stuff. Lots of love for Wilbur the Wolverine.Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross hints at a strategy for NAFTA renegotiation with Mexico that completely annihilates any leftist opposition, and simultaneously drops the greatest humanitarian narrative right in the lap of the globalists. Make Mexico raise their minimum wage.Currently the minimum wage in Mexico is 80 pesos per day. Around $4 per day, and the length of the workday is up to the hiring company. The minimum wage in the U.S. for an eight hour day is $58 ($7.90/hr x 8). Additionally, almost no-one...

    President Donald Trump intends to intensify enforcement of food safety regulations as a cudgel in international trade negotiations, according to leaked recordings of a what appears to be a phone conversation between Trump and Wilbur Ross, his nominee for Commerce Secretary. During the conversation, which was recorded in December, the then-president-elect also advocated a 10 percent across-the-board tariff on all foreign imports, an issue on which his administration has adopted numerous different positions and which Speaker Paul Ryan has flatly rejected. The proposals came during an apparent phone conversation that was captured on video and provided to Gizmodo via SecureDrop,...

    The Senate voted Monday to confirm billionaire investor Wilbur Ross as secretary of commerce in President Trump's Cabinet. Ross was approved by a vote of 72-27, with 20 Democrats and Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, joining 51 Republicans to vote "aye." Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., did not vote due to his ongoing recovery from back surgery. The Senate later voted 67-31 to move forward on the nomination of Rep. Ryan Zinke, R-Mont., to lead the Interior Department. A final vote on Zinke's confirmation could occur on Tuesday or Wednesday. Ross is the 14th member of Trump's Cabinet to be cofirmed, with...

    WASHINGTON — President Obama ordered his advisers last August to produce a secret report on unrest in the Arab world, which concluded that without sweeping political changes, countries from Bahrain to Yemen were ripe for popular revolt, administration officials said Wednesday. Mr. Obama’s order, known as a Presidential Study Directive, identified likely flashpoints, most notably Egypt, and solicited proposals for how the administration could push for political change in countries with autocratic rulers who are also valuable allies of the United States, these officials said.

    Trump continues to validate our best instincts about the man, and our greatest hopes. Not only does he know how to keep his friends close and his enemies closer, but he knows how and who to pick in a way to utterly confound and bewilder the liberals and Demo-gogs.

These guys have been huge political contributors,Trump has just robbed the Dems Blind with these appointments. Plus they know what they're doing, and they know the score and they understand Donald Trump.

    ABC Breaking News Newly released State Department emails help reveal how a major Clinton Foundation donor was placed on a sensitive government intelligence advisory board even though he had no obvious experience in the field, a decision that appeared to baffle the department’s professional staff. The emails further reveal how, after inquiries from ABC News, the Clinton staff sought to “protect the name” of the Secretary, “stall” the ABC News reporter and ultimately accept the resignation of the donor just two days later. Copies of dozens of internal emails were provided to ABC News by the conservative political group Citizens...

    Well, it's official now: John Kiriakou, the former CIA operative who affirmed claims that waterboarding quickly unloosed the tongues of hard-core terrorists, says he didn't know what he was talking about. Kiriakou, a 15-year veteran of the agency's intelligence analysis and operations directorates, electrified the hand-wringing national debate over torture in December 2007 when he told ABC's Brian Ross and Richard Esposito in a much ballyhooed, exclusive interview that senior al Qaeda commando Abu Zubaydah cracked after only one application of the face cloth and water.... Now comes John Kiriakou, again, with a wholly different story. On the next-to-last page...

    An attempt by President Obama to promote his 'My Brother's Keeper' initiative, which aims to keep youths of color out of trouble, came to a farcical end when rapper Rick Ross's ankle bracelet - which he received on a kidnapping and assault charge - went off. Obama had invited a bevy of hip-hop heavyweights, including Niki Minaj, Common, Busta Rhymes, Pusha T and DJ Khaled, to the meeting at the White House Friday. But none of them - least of all Ross himself - expected the ankle bracelet to interrupt the president, according to TMZ.
