    In her Opening Statement, Judge Jeanine Pirro said that her experience last week on ABC's "The View" exemplified the hatred toward President Trump. "This isn't about me," Pirro said. "There is a bigger issue at play here. 'The View' was just a microcosm of what's going on in this country," she said.

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said on Sunday that his committee will seek testimony from John Brennan, a CIA director under former President Barack Obama who has become a fierce critic of President Trump."We have lots of questions for John Brennan and he will definitely be sought by the committees for an interview," Goodlatte said during a Fox News interview on "Sunday Morning Futures" with Maria Bartiromo. "This is an extremely disturbing thing to see both he and [former FBI] James Comey, supposedly impartial government officials carrying out their jobs in very important areas in intelligence gathering and...

    Ecuador is working to finalize an agreement to withdraw its asylum protection from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in order to throw him out of the country's embassy in London and turn him over to British authorities, journalist Glenn Greenwald reported on Saturday. On Friday, Ecuador President Lenin Moreno was in London, where he was to speak at the Global Disabilities Summit, Greenwald reports on The Intercept, but the actual purpose was to meet with British officials to finalize the agreement to turn Assange over. The WikiLeaks founder has been at Ecuador's embassy in London since 2012. Moreno will also travel...

    House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) said Sunday in a Fox News appearance his Committee is seeking testimony from former CIA Director, John Brennan. Snip~~ “We have lots of questions for John Brennan and he will definitely be sought by the committees for an interview. This is an extremely disturbing thing to see both he and James Comey, supposedly impartial government officials carrying out their jobs in very important areas in intelligence gathering and law enforcement, express the kind of extreme bias that they’ve shown now, which I think reflects quite accurately on what they were doing back in 2016,”...
  • FIRST THOUGHTS ON THE CARTER PAGE FISA APPLICATION

    Powerline ^ | July 21, 2018 | JOHN HINDERAKER
    Given that most of the application that Barack Obama’s Department of Justice submitted to the FISA court to obtain a surveillance order on Carter Page has been redacted, what we can say about the application is limited. Still, a few things stand out. First, the FISA application expresses confidence that Page was an agent of the Russian government, and engaged in criminal activity: But Page has never been charged with anything. Accordingly, the least we can say is that Obama’s FBI and DOJ were wrong. Second, the application’s description of Christopher Steele and the provenance of his dossier was misleading...
  • Why hasn’t Carter Page been charged if he IS a spy according to the FISA warrant?

    The Truth
    The Obama DOJ labeled Carter Page as engaged in clandestine activities and collaborating with foreign intelligence to the FISA court about 2 years ago and yet nobody has arrested him or indicting him with any sort of espionage crime, not even Mueller has done anything about it. Some of the idiots on the left think Page must be collaborating with Special Counsel and that’s why he hasn’t been charged yet but even if he was doing so, they wouldn’t be allowing him to going around on television shows giving interviews, they would shut that down. Carter Page was the vehicle...

    To understand the left, you have to understand human nature. The strategy of the left is to capitalize on unhappiness. Many, if not most people, are unhappy about something in their lives, and anything you do to better their situation will only result in something else about which they will be unhappy. You can see this in the unremitting criticism of the president, ostensibly predicated on an imaginary collusion with Russia and in the anti-gentrification movements spreading through our urban areas. In both cases, Democrats fan the flames of discontent. The President If you read nothing else in the sea...

    President Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, came clean on CNN and stated that former President Obama was behind spying on President Trump! Snip~~~ (If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.)

    Recordings and summaries of emergency calls show Washington wildlife officials at first objected to an air rescue of a woman treed by wolves, or help from the Okanogan County sheriff. Washington wildlife managers initially opposed sending a helicopter or a search-and-rescue team to save a woman treed by wolves in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, according to recordings and summaries of emergency calls. ... Notes from a call between DNR dispatcher Jill Jones and a wildlife officer summarized WDFW’s position, and her position, shortly before the helicopter launched. “No helicopter. Federally listed species. 3 WDFW personnel saying so,” according to DNR’s...

    Something has been going on with Robert Mueller's investigation of people thought to have played significant roles in the Trump-Russia affair. The special counsel, assigned to investigate "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Trump," has been farming out seemingly important parts of the investigation to offices outside his own.In April, Mueller referred an investigation of close Trump associate Michael Cohen to federal prosecutors in New York. This month, the U.S. attorney in Washington — not Mueller — indicted Maria Butina on charges of being an unregistered Russian agent. And also...

    Trying to find love in D.C. can be tricky. If you’re a young Trump administration staffer, it might be near impossible. GOP employees and other right-wingers have been complaining that dating in one of the most Democratic cities in America is a political minefield. They’ve been called out, flipped off and told they are personally responsible for the death of democracy. One 29-year-old lobbyist told Fox News that learning to date in a Trump world is “absolutely insane.” “It’s getting so bad,” the lobbyist, who asked to remain anonymous because she works with the administration, said.

    Two Guerneville men have received suspended jail sentences and have been ordered to complete community service after their convictions for stealing the Pride Flag this spring from the town’s plaza. Michael Thomas Campos, 35, pleaded no contest Friday to stealing the flag, according to a press release from the Sonoma County District Attorney’s Office. Judge Chris Honigsburg placed Campos on three years probation and ordered him to complete 80 hours of community service cleaning the Russian River. Vincent O’Sullivan, 55, earlier was found guilty by a jury of his role in the flag’s theft. Commissioner Mark Urioste earlier this month...

    Last week’s arrest of Marina Butina, the 29-year-old operative who allegedly wielded sex as a weapon to spy for Russia, revealed not one but two channels into American power pursued by Russian intelligence. We’ve known for a while now that the Russians have attempted to use the NRA, and America’s love affair with guns, to shape the nation’s politics. But Butina’s other “backdoor” was more surprising: the faith community, which she infiltrated through the National Prayer Breakfast. The annual National Prayer Breakfast dates back to 1953, and every US president since Eisenhower has regularly attended, along with much of Congress,...

    LONGUEUIL, Que. — Quebec actor Edgar Fruitier faces two charges of indecent assault against a minor in connection with alleged events dating back to the 1970s. The 88-year-old actor’s arrest was first reported by the Montreal-area newspaper Le Courrier du Sud. Police in Longueuil, on Montreal’s South Shore, confirm they arrested a person matching Fruitier’s age in connection with two counts of indecent assault against a victim who was 15 years old when the alleged assaults began. An arrest warrant issued July 12 says Fruitier was wanted for allegedly committing indecent assault against a male victim between June 1 and...

    The U.S. is calling out China and Russia for helping North Korea violate United Nations sanctions as the regime smuggles in more oil than is allowed. The illegal transfers are now disrupting the U.S. talks with North Korea and its push for the regime to completely dismantle its nuclear weapons program, according to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. Pompeo traveled to New York Friday to join Haley for a meeting with the U.N. Security Council representatives, including Chinese and Russian representatives, for what Haley called "frank talk."
