  • WALLACE/PUTIN INTERVIEW ON FOX

    07/16/2018 5:52:48 PM PDT · by DIRTYSECRET · 20 replies
    Chris Wallace: Is he or is he not a d--k? Handing Putin the paper of indictments and Putin is supposed to take it? Interruptions. Then the Bret Baers had to call it something it was not-blowing their own horn. Bunch of self serving idiots. Just like the rest of them.

    It was glorious. Here's the break-up of the meeting, provided you don't have time to watch the "vidya". First spoketh Putin, and most importantly, he thanked God Emperor for taking care of that crazy fat kid Kim Jong-un and trying to solve the North Korea situation. Then, he promised to collaborate with his American brothers and sisters in Syria. Also, the Russian president said the two countries should cooperate more, economically speaking, yet he smacked the Donald regarding the Iran business. Putin acknowledged that Russia and America must be brought together, as per Trump's campaign promises, and, check this out:...

    I’m a very private person and not at all interested in public attention. But, given the incredibly inaccurate and misleading attacks on my father, Woody Allen, I feel that I can no longer stay silent as he continues to be condemned for a crime he did not commit. I was present for everything that transpired in our house before, during, and after the alleged event. Now that the public hysteria of earlier this year has died down a little and I have some hope that the truth can get a fair hearing, I want to share my story.
  • How Team Trump capitalized on Russia's interference in 2016 (Triple Nothingburger Sandwich)

    NBC News ^ | July 16, 2018 | Chuck Todd, Mark Murray and Carrie Dann
    On Friday, special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 12 Russian intelligence officials for hacking Democratic organizations and the Clinton campaign, offering the clearest story yet of how the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election. But the other part of the story — which hasn’t been completely told — is how the Trump campaign actively seized on this interference, how it benefited from it, and how its associates communicated (wittingly or unwittingly) with Russian intelligence and WikiLeaks, according to the Mueller indictments, the public record and previous reporting. A Trump campaign associate — presumably Roger Stone — communicated with Russian...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) In 2003, after it had become apparent that the U.S. and allied forces who had invaded Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein were not going to find the vaunted weapons of mass destruction that served as the pretense for justifying the invasion, the fake U.S. and international news media, in coordination with the Democrat Party, demonized the U.S. intelligence community for its apparent failure to properly assess the treat. The employees and leaders of the CIA, DIA, FBI, NSA and all the myriad other alphabet agencies that make up the U.S. intel...

    Well into his second year in the Oval Office, President Trump has, by any objective measure of pro-freedom and applied common sense, accomplished more that most Presidents in memory. That is, “more” with respect to moving America positively forward as a successful Nation, rather than allowing it to recede into stagnant oblivion, rushing over the cliff of socialism and into the abyss of communism. Ignore his personality. Look at the powerful results already accomplished.  Unlike too many of the CEOs made abnormally wealthy by Wall Street bankers who focus on thirty day results, Trump has brought an unusual mission to his Administration...
  • The FBI and DOJ Praetorian Guard – The Beginning of the End

    IWB ^ | LV
    After Caesar Augustus gained complete control in 27 B.C. and became the first Roman Emperor, he established the Praetorian Guard for his personal protection. Over the next three centuries, the Guard exploited its nexus to the seat of power for its own interest and aggrandizement. Most notably, the Praetorians schemed and interfered with Roman politics to the point of overthrowing emperors and proclaiming their successors. In 193 A.D., Emperor Septimius Severus tried to disband the Praetorian Guard, but his reorganization of the Guard did not last as it regained power after his death. In 306 A.D., amidst turmoil among a...

    The Daily Guardian ^ | July 17, 2018 | Modesto P. Sa-onoy
    THE government is investigating the source of the tarpaulins that suddenly appeared in several places in Manila proclaiming the Philippines as a Province of China. I don’t think this is a prank but that there are sectors in this country that want to call attention to the possibility that at the rate the Duterte government is handling the West Philippine Sea and Scarborough Shoal issues, this country will truly become a province of China. The idea of the Philippines as a Chinese province should not be seen as an impossibility. Even now the Chinese government is already engaged in clear...

    Brennan's post Putin summit tweet: "Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of 'high crimes & misdemeanors.' It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???" At what point can a person like this be arrested for sedition? Donald Trump is the duly-elected President of the United States, he campaigned on pursuing friendlier relations with Russia, and now he's following through on that promise, which to many of us who voted for him would be to the benefit...

    MARTINSBURG — Thunderstorms are in the forecast for the next few days, but on Friday night a different type of phenomenon hit the Mountain State: Stormy Daniels. The adult film star and stripper, who is suing President Donald Trump over a nondisclosure agreement regarding a sexual encounter with the president in 2006, took the stage at Lust Gentlemen’s Club in Martinsburg Friday. The show was one of two at the club, the other slated for Saturday night, as part of Daniels’ nationwide tour. General Manager Robert Austin said the star’s appearance was a notable event for the club and for...

    Given what your mother always told you to do, you’d be surprised how few people do the one simple thing that can help push you closer to getting hired. That’s right. It’s the thank-you note. Just a quarter of entry-level job applicants typically sent a thank-you note after completing a job interview in 2017, according to iCIMS’ Class of 2018 Jobs Outlook report. iCIMS is a global talent acquisition software company. It might seem as dated as flip phones but sending a thank-you letter is critical, said Vicki Salemi, a career expert at Monster.com in New York. “There is no...

    Thursday, July 12, 2018 More Democrats Believe in UFOs Than America Posted by Daniel Greenfield 58% of Democrats believe in UFOs, but only 32% are proud to be American. Only 37% of Republicans believe in flying saucers, but a full 80% are proud of their country. Almost twice as many Democrats are willing to believe in being abducted by space aliens than in their country. Hillary Clinton had promised that if elected, she would find out the truth about the little green men and suggested that the planet had already been visited by aliens. "Maybe we could have, like, a...

    Mayor Sadiq Khan rebuffed US President Donald Trump’s contention that immigrants from Africa and Asia are responsible for rising levels of violent crime in London and other parts of Europe. “The fact that rising numbers of immigrants happen to coincide with rising levels of violence doesn’t prove that the immigrants themselves are the ones responsible,” Khan argued. “Let me point out that the levels of violence in the countries of origin of these immigrants are higher than they are in London. This leads me to think that to a certain extent we are moderating their behavior and reducing the global...

    NEW YORK CITY—Paul J. Massey Jr. and his new company, Building by Building, Block by Block (B6) founded with former colleagues Neil Heilberg and Michael Wlody, are looking to hire 50 brokers. They’ve already recruited an experienced management team of 20 people. Having officially launched on July 1 in temporary space at 275 Madison Ave., B6 plans to open permanent offices in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and New Jersey—all within its first year. Similar to Massey Knakal, the firm Massey originally started with Bob Knakal in 1988, which Cushman & Wakefield acquired in 2014 for $100 million, B6 will use a...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 7/16/18 | Dave Rubin
    Tolerance--a word we hear a lot these days--is “the ability to live with people whose opinions and behavior you don’t agree with.” That’s essentially how Oxford defines it, how Merriam-Webster defines it and how we, as a society, have always defined it. You may favor the death penalty while your cousin is against it. Your dad might have voted for Trump, your mom for Clinton and your brother may not have voted at all. Whatever differences we have, tolerating the opinions of another is a prerequisite to a functioning and free society. America itself was built on a foundation of...

    Recently our intelligence was insulted by the left’s lie machine once again. This time the lies centered on a comparison between the number of voters registered as Democrats and the number registered as Republicans. We were told that as Republicans it was time to hide under our beds and quiver because by some 12 million registered voters the Democrats had a huge edge over Republicans. This is a lie based on numbers picked out of the air. Here are some voter registration numbers NOT picked out of the air but drown from public records dating back to 2016. THIS is...
  • What’s More Dangerous, Religion or Political Ideology?

    IWB ^ | Daniel Carter
    Ask just about any diehard atheist what the most dangerous part of human nature is, and they will tell you it’s religion. In all honesty, this used to be me. And to be fair, religion has inspired people to commit some of the obscenest atrocities in human history; The Crusades, the German Peasants’ War, French Wars of Religion, and the Thirty Years’ War, to name a few. But what major acts of violence have been committed by major nations in the name of religion in modern times? There have been sporadic occurrences of religious violence by the underdeveloped world. For...

    Trump Plans to Undo Obama Rule Letting Unions Skim Dues From Medicaid Payments The Trump administration is taking steps to prevent labor unions from withholding dues for home healthcare workers from their Medicaid payments, an Obama-era innovation that many observers believe is illegal. On Tuesday, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed undoing a 2014 rule allowing states to skim public-sector union dues from Medicaid payments to independent home healthcare providers on the theory that those providers are de facto public employees — a privilege that has netted unions anywhere from $71 million (CMS’ estimate) to $200 million...
