    Moscow Times ^ | Sep 19, 2017 — 11:47 — Update: 15:18
    Two people were hospitalized with serious injuries after a helicopter accidentally fired on bystanders at the Zapad 2017 military exercises, the online news portal 66.ru cited a source as saying on Tuesday. The week-long drills in Western Russia and neighboring Belarus kicked off last week, with around 13,000 troops, hundreds of tanks, aircraft, warships and other military hardware participating. The incident reportedly took place at the Luzhsky range near St. Petersburg either on Monday or Sunday. President Vladimir Putin visited the range on Monday. The unnamed source told 66.ru that there appeared to have been a technical glitch on board...

    Facebook, which acknowledged this week that it sold $100,000 worth of political ads in the last two years to accounts linked to a Russian troll factory, came under stinging criticism Thursday over its refusal to release copies of the ads to the public — or to congressional investigators.

    IWB ^ | Robert Carbery
    While most of the media are melting down over Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer who claimed to have dirt on Hillary Clinton, many are ignoring the real collusion with Russia that occurred during the campaign. The truth has of course been muddied by the leftist mainstream media, happy to report only on stories damaging to the president as opposed to reporting the facts and letting the public determine the implications. Paul Roderick Gregory wrote in Forbes earlier this summer that, according to an insider account, the Clinton team put together the Russia Gate narrative just 24 hours...

    Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV on Tuesday that "I don't see a crime" in Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting last year with a lawyer with ties to the Russian government. "Even if there was coordination, even if the worst-case scenario as far as we know now is the Russians getting in touch with Trump Jr. and saying: 'We have some dirt on Hillary Clinton. Come. We'll give it to you,'" he told Miranda Khan on "America Talks Live" in an interview. "And he goes and gets the information. "That's what The New York Times did in...

    Election-law experts say it is far from clear whether Donald Trump Jr.’s 2016 meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer crossed a legal line. President Trump’s eldest son arranged a meeting in June of last year between top campaign aides and a Russian lawyer who has been linked to the Kremlin, after being told she “might have information helpful to the campaign..." Federal election law prohibits foreign nationals or foreign governments from contributing or donating money or “anything of value” to a political campaign. It also makes it a felony for a campaign or members of a campaign to knowingly and...

    MSNBC legal experts and VOX | 7/12/2017 | SOLs
    Last night on MSNBC each show had on Democrat ‘legal experts’ making the case that the Trump campaign just admitted to breaking federal law. Brian Williams pointed out on his show (as did Britt Hume did on FNC ) that there is no law against ‘collusion’, before getting the following ‘legal’ opinions: That the Trump campaign committed conspiracy to commit a crime which is a crime itself. That the crime they committed conspiracy to commit was to violate of campaign finance law. That they made an attempt to get a foreign campaign contribution from the foreign state Russia. What was...

    This is a complex setup that Donald Trump Jr. has gotten himself in to, but he certainly is not in it alone. OK, I think I will start by listing the cast of characters and their roles: 1.Natalia Veselnitskaya is a Russian lawyer whose clients include Russian “state-owned businesses”, including Petr Katsyv’s son, Denis Katsyv. The latter owns Prevezon Holdings, an investment firm, and his father is the “vice president of the state-owned Russian Railways and a former deputy governor of the Moscow region”. Veselnitskaya is known for leading a “multi-pronged” attack against “the Magnitsky Act, which provoked a Cold...

    Washington Examiner ^ | June 25, 2017 | Todd Shepherd
    The nation's top state election officials say they'll keep fighting a Department of Homeland Security order that designates state and local election systems as "critical infrastructure," and aren't happy with the message they got this week that the designation will remain. For the moment, that fight means lobbying congressional delegations to use whatever power is at their disposal to make DHS back off. Barring that, a separation of powers lawsuit may be their last option, but it's not clear yet if any state or coalition of states is willing to take that step just yet. Week Twenty-Two of the Trump...

    Yesterday, we noted Kellyanne Conway mocking CNN's Russia fixation. Conway told Alisyn Camerota: "I know that we just like to say the word 'Russia, Russia' to try to mislead the voters. And I know that CNN is aiding and abetting this nonsense as well.” Well, if CNN likes to say "Russia, Russia," we'll need to multiply that 28 times to understand the depth of MSNBC's obsession with the subject. In the first hour of Joy Reid's MSNBC show this morning, the word "Russia" or "Russian" was heard . . . 56 times! View the amusing video here.

    The F-16 had tried to approach the aircraft carrying the defence minister even though it was flying over neutral waters, agencies said today, before a Russian Sukhoi-27 turned up to warn it off. Shoigu was reported to be en route to the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad for a meeting to discuss how well Russia's western flank was defended. In dramatic footage appearing to show the incident unfolding, a Sukhoi-27 can be seen flying between an F-16 and another plane before tilting its wings. The F-16 then seems to fly off.

    Before this morning, most people in the United States had never heard of Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand. But, an ABC story (which we covered here) suggesting that Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein may have to recuse himself from overseeing Special Counsel Mueller’s Russia probe, and that Brand would be the next inline to step into that position, changed all that. So what do we know about Rachel Brand? Well, we know 4 things with absolute certainty: 1.She was appointed by the Trump administration and confirmed on May 18, 2017 2.She is an active contributor to Republican campaigns 3.Democrats hate...

    Man who started investigation admits no evidence and has been caught lying to Congress! Did the Democrats’ orchestrated attempt to catch the Trump administration in a major scandal with Russia just blow up? The Washington Times reported it was President Obama’s CIA director, John Brennan, who prompted the investigation into claims the Trump campaign had inappropriate contacts with the Russian government. But that’s the same John Brennan who, like other top Democrats, has stated he has seen no evidence of collusion with the Russians, and the same John Brennan who, among the other indiscretions, was caught lying to Congress. {..snip..}

    The constant hammering of false narratives and widely accepted facts against our president with no evidence to support is becoming dangerous. Trump is not the threat to democracy that the Left has been insisting for the last couple years. The current attempt to delegitimize our duly elected leader is an actual threat to our current system of government. And the scary thing is people are buying into what the media is selling. False narratives and fabrication of reality has been a go-to move for the U.S. government and corporate media throughout the years to help bring the country along for...

    In the midst of the 2016 presidential primary season, the FBI received a purported Russian intelligence document describing a tacit understanding between the campaign of Hillary Clinton and the Justice Department over the inquiry into whether she intentionally revealed classified information through her use of a private email server. The Russian document mentioned a supposed email describing how then-Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch had privately assured someone in the Clinton campaign that the email investigation would not push too deeply into the matter
