    You might remember back in May 2018 when sketchy porn lawyer Michael Avenetti was releasing U.S. Treasury notifications on Michael Cohen received from an unknown source within the Treasury Department. You might also remember when New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow wrote a sympathetic article after talking to the leaking treasury official. As a result the Treasury Inspector General began an investigation. John C. Fry, 54, was an intelligence analyst with the IRS’s law enforcement arm in San Francisco. According to the North California U.S. Attorney’s Office (full pdf below) after searching for IRS activity reports related to Michael Cohen, Mr. Fry...

    Shortened title. Full title: Hate Hoax Promoters Kamala Harris and Al Sharpton Meet In Harlem Hours After Jussie Smollett Arrested In politics timing is everything, as the saying goes. And the timing of this meeting was perfect. 2020 Democratic Party presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) met with 2004 Democratic Party presidential candidate and Tawana Brawley race attack hoax promoter the Rev. Al Sharpton at Sylvia’s Restaurant in Harlem Thursday morning–just hours after accused race attack hoaxer Jussie Smollett, whom Harris had supported, was arrested in Chicago.
  • Federal grand jury reportedly already convened, issued multiple subpoenas on Jussie Smollett

    Federal grand jury reportedly already convened, issued multiple subpoenas on Jussie Smollett fake mail threat sent to Fox 1/18/19 If the remarkable grassroots journalists at CWBChicago are correct (as they have been all along), Jussie Smollett has a lot more to worry about than the state rap of a class four felony of making a false police report. If he was indeed responsible for the sending of a letter to the Fox Chicago studios where Empire is produced, he has triggered federal charges that carry hard time. Importantly, the feds don't parole early to relieve overcrowded prisons the way the...

    As I fight on with my computer intrusion lawsuit against the U.S. government, it seems to intersect more clearly with current events every day. And it points to an even larger story. How widespread is improper government surveillance of journalists, politicians and other U.S. citizens in the name of the fight against terrorism? A few of us found out we were targeted only because we were lucky enough to be alerted by inside sources or other unique ways. How many others were targeted, monitored and watched by government officials but still have no idea it happened? Who is behind the...
  • Don’t Let Liberals Jussie You!

    02/21/2019 3:32:50 AM PST · by Kaslin · 18 replies ^ | February 21, 2019 | Kurt Schlichter
    I propose a new verb. “Jussie” (verb): To promote a bigoted lie about conservative Americans that faithfully supports the liberal narrative while being so transparently false that only the stupidest of the people pushing it actually believe it. Our society keeps getting jussied, and I’m frankly getting tired of it. It’s not only annoying but it’s evil. It is naked prejudice disguised as fussy outrage directed toward groups who the social justice whiners have decreed are exempt from the standard ban on racial, sexual, religious and cultural bigotry. And it’s dangerous, both because of the cold fury it inspires in...

    I don’t believe we’ve written about Monica Witt, the former U.S. Air Force intelligence specialist accused of espionage for Iran. Witt, who now resides in Iran, out of our reach, is said to have caused significant damage to America. She is suspected, among other things, of revealing the names of double agents run by the United States. Why did Witt become a traitor? Douglas Wise, former deputy director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, rules out a monetary motive. She wasn’t in it for the money; this wasn’t a fee-for-task thing. At some point, she took an ideological left turn to...

    I have to confess that I never really took any notice of the “legendary designer” Karl Lagerfeld, who died yesterday at the age of 85. It puts me in the frame of mind of my old mentor M. Stanton Evans, who with his usual talent for piercing pretentious liberal cliches once joked, “I know we all remember vividly where we were when we first heard the shocking news that Gianni Versace had been assassinated.” But Lagerfeld was controversial for comments like this: “One cannot — even if there are decades between them — kill millions of Jews so you can...

    Last Friday, my mentions died for your sins. I posted a screen grab of Riley Roberts’s House Microsoft Outlook card, including his official email address, office phone number, and his designation as “Staff”. Roberts is the boyfriend of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The Congresswoman was upset. Throwing caution to the wind, she stormed into my mentions, asserting this was just a way to give Mr. Roberts access to her official calendar.
  • Dutch Orchestra walks Out on Muslim guest conductor.

    Wow, This demonstrates how ingrained the Muslim beliefs are in people of that faith Dutch Orchestra walks Out on Muslim guest conductor. When the most liberal country in Europe pulls the plug on Islam, the world is beginning to see the light. Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands attended a concert in the capital, Amsterdam. The Guest Conductor, who just happens to be Muslim, proceeded to give the Queen a lecture on the "beauty" of Islam. The entire orchestra got up and walked out, refusing to be associated with someone lecturing their Queen. The staff of the music hall escorted the...

    I am so looking forward to the Democrats’ 2020 demolition derby at the four-way intersectionality of Identity Politics Boulevard and Oppression Road. Even more so now that Bernie Sanders is in. No surprise there. What is amusing is that Bernie looks to be running as a straight white male. Get a load of this exchange: When asked by VPR’s Bob Kinzel about concerns that he no longer best represents “the face of the new Democratic Party,” Sanders, 77, said:“We have got to look at candidates, you know, not by the color of their skin, not by their sexual orientation or...

    President Trump has rejected the status quo ante in American foreign policy. He has rededicated the United States to the support of Israel. He has withdrawn the United States from the disgraceful deal with Iran. He has tightened the sanctions regime with the intent of disabling the mullahs. He has shaken up matters with the North Korean regime in the interest of putting their nuclear weapons program on the path of termination. He has now come out for the removal of the socialist dictator of Venezuela. I could multiply the examples, but you can fill in the blanks. In each...

    Jussie Smollett’s phony hate-crime story could have been taken apart in 24 hours, except for one thing: Nobody wanted to be the first to call bullsh**. Who will bell the cat? Not the police, and I don’t blame them. Smollett is a vocal critic of President Donald Trump who checks two protected-category boxes: He is gay and he is black. No police officer comes out ahead in any encounter in which he has to explain that he isn’t a racist or a gay-basher. There isn’t much evidence that racist or homophobic attacks have increased in the Age of MAGA —...

    Will liberal outlets like Politifact fact check the geography-challenged Bernie Sanders? Socialists like Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aren't big on math. It just gets in the way of setting utopian, unachievable goals. Take Sanders today. At the very beginning of his formal announcement video, Sanders set this goal: "an unprecedented, grassroots campaign of one million active volunteers in every state in our country."Um, just a little problem there, Bernie. The population of your own state of Vermont is only 627,000. How can you possibly not know that? And there are five other states with populations under one million. So, yeah,...

    The news that Empire star Jussie Smollett may have orchestrated his own hate crime certainly came as a shock to much of America. Joe Jervis, however, wasn’t exactly surprised. Jervis, creator of the news blog Joe.My.God, has been covering LGBTQ-related news and events for 15 years. Several years ago, he decided he would only report on alleged hate crimes if at least one of three criteria were met: There had been an arrest, there was conclusive video evidence, or there were uninvolved eye-witness accounts. The recent assault of a gay man in Salt Lake City, which was captured on film,...

    PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — Sen. Kamala Harris told a crowd Monday that she would push for the federal government to rename Columbus Day “Indigenous Peoples’ Day," a focal point for some progressives who say the holiday should emphasize the history of Native Americans instead of the European conquerer. “Sign me up,” Harris said in response to a voter's question of whether she would support the initiative to rename the holiday. She spoke of her own efforts in the Senate to make lynching a federal crime.

    Er … suuuuure it is. The only way anyone could assert this with a straight face, let alone with the smug dismissal Ocasio-Cortez displays here, is to be entirely ignorant of the post-war history of Berlin, Germany, and the deep desire to flee the communist system in both. A quick search on “Berlin Wall history” for the woefully uneducated would land on this entry in Encylopaedia Britannica: In the years between 1949 and 1961, about 2.5 million East Germans had fled from East to West Germany, including steadily rising numbers of skilled workers, professionals, and intellectuals. Their loss threatened to...
