    The Hill ^ | 07/20/18 | John Bowden
    The Republican National Committee (RNC) posted strong fundraising numbers for June, surpassing the cash-strapped Democratic National Committee (DNC) for another month in a row. RNC officials reported almost $14 million in fundraising in June, compared to just $8 million raised by Democrats during that time. The party remains far ahead of the DNC in to-date fundraising totals for this cycle, enjoying a lead of almost $100 million in total funds raised, according to The Washington Post. Democrats ended June with just $9 million cash on hand and $6.3 million in debt, according to the Post. That's compared to a much...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Turns out liberals don’t like living by the new rules they’ve created. Go figure. – After “Guardians of the Galaxy” Director James Gunn got dumped by Disney when it was revealed that he had issued a bunch of tweets that were at least seemingly pro-pedophilia when he first got onto Twitter 7-8 years ago, liberals all over social media wailed in protest, decrying the action. Gunn himself claimed the tweets were all a “joke”, sort of like Roseanne Barr claimed her single seemingly racist tweet targeting Valerie Jarrett was a “mistake” about...
  • CLINTON FOUNDATION FINANCIAL FRAUDS (Enter Rosenstein, Mueller and Comey)

    POLIZETTE ^ | 4/6/18 | Charles Ortel
    A Clinton Foundation grant went to the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund — but the latter group had only an office address in Washington, D.C. So what happened to the money? Here’s a question for which Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, special counsel Robert Mueller, and former FBI Director James Comey may well know the answer to — but aren’t likely to want to talk about in public, under oath: Why did the Clinton Foundation send a $37 million grant for the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund in 2010 to a Baltimore post office box when the CBHF told federal tax authorities that...
  • Politico Editor: Trump Body Language Reveals Possible Russia Collusion

    Newsbusters ^ | July 20, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    Case closed! The body language of President Donald Trump meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow reveals that there is a strong possibility of collusion. Impeach now! That is one reason why Politico's editor in chief Blake Hounshell has proclaimed on July 20 that he is no longer a skeptic of Trump-Russia collusion. See, back in February, on the heels of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's  indictment of a number of Russian companies but with no finding of collusion with any American,  Hounshell declared himself a skeptic. However, now that a second set of indictments of Russians have been issued also with...

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | July 19, 2018 | sundance
    When it was first discovered Tuesday that Robert Mueller had filed a motion (full pdf below) to grant limited immunity to five witnesses; and simultaneously seal the court records -protecting them- therein; the benefactors of that immunity request were predictably expected to include: Tony Podesta, and/or John Podesta, and/or Kimberley Fritts and/or Rick Gates; in exchange for their testimony against Paul Manafort.The reason is simple, Paul Manafort was a business associate working with Tony Podesta lobbying on behalf of Ukraine; Kimberley Fritts was Podesta’s CEO.  Paul Manafort was not a registered lobbyist, violating FARA rules; however, neither was Tony or...

    Keep on digging, CNN. I bet you find that pony somewhere in there. In remarks unearthed from a 1998 symposium, Brett Kavanaugh took the ultimately banal position that the Constitution envisions Congress as the proper institution for investigating presidents, not independent counsels. CNN believes that while this is “consistent” with other public statements already known, it “raises new questions” about his confirmation.

    Tony Podesta, founder of the now-shuttered Podesta Group and brother to former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, has been offered immunity by special counsel Robert Mueller to testify against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, according to a report. Fox News' Tucker Carlson announced on his show Thursday evening that two separate sources confirmed the offer. "In other words, for a near identical crime, Bill and Hillary's friend could escape and emerge completely unscathed while Paul Manafort may rot in jail. Only one of them made the mistake of chairing Donald Trump's presidential campaign," Carlson said. The special counsel's...

    New York Times ^ | 18 July 2018 | MATT FLEGENHEIMER
    Maybe it was the F.B.I.’s fault for unnerving him. Or maybe the White House staff had left President Trump ill-prepared before his stunning remarks in Helsinki Monday, when he sided with Russia over his own intelligence agencies. At a bar in central Pennsylvania, voters wondered if election meddling was really so terrible. At a mall in Arizona, they insisted that Mr. Trump had actually been quite tough on Russia until, well, whatever that was in Finland. In interviews with conservatives and Trump supporters across a half-dozen states, there were many theories about the president’s performance — he was tougher in...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly given a key Democratic operative immunity to testify against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. According to Tucker Carlson, speaking Thursday evening on his Fox News program, Mr. Mueller has offered immunity to Tony Podesta, founder of the Podesta Group and brother of former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. Mr. Carlson cited “two sources” whom he did not name. Both Mr. Manafort and the Podesta Group worked on a campaign named the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine

    Experts say the opposite is happening. Before US immigration authorities detained him and took his son, the Honduran migrant said he spent three days in the hands of armed men who identified themselves as members of the Gulf Cartel. Christian, who did not want his full name used, said he was traveling to the US border with his 7-year-old ..."They told us if we didn't pay that they were going to kill us," recalled Christian, who said he was freed three days later after relatives wired money {snip} . The smugglers prefer migrants with family in the US. They know...

    Putin met the last four US presidents since he took office in the 1990s. The two leaders met again in June 2000 in Moscow after Putin became president of Russia and Clinton was in his final year in office. After Bush was sworn into office in January 2001, the two leaders met for the first time in June for a summit in Slovenia. Putin met with the recently sworn-in Obama for the first time in July 2009 in Moscow. Obama reportedly emerged from the meeting feeling confident and optimistic in resetting relations with Putin. "We think there's an excellent opportunity...

    Immigrant parents and children alleged in interviews filed in federal court this week that they faced mistreatment while being held in U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facilities, saying they were often deprived of food, water and sleep. In the interviews, which included some redactions and were filed as part of a lawsuit against the government's detention of minors, the immigrants described not being allowed to shower for days and being given rotten food and dirty drinking water. One woman described as Lidia, 22, said during her interview that she and her 4-year-old son “went hungry the entire time” they...

    Time magazine has released the cover of its newest issue, and it makes quite a visual and political statement. The cover shows the faces of U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin morphing together. The close-up image shows the leaders' faces blended so that it's unclear where one begins and the other ends. An animated version online shows President Trump fully transforming into Putin in about 15 seconds. The cover illustrates an article on the two leaders' recent Helsinki summit and the persistent controversy over what author Brian Bennett calls President Trump's "puzzling affinity for Putin."

    Hoorah! CNN has finally had its Bigfoot moment. After a long, arduous search which has been going on by CNN and the mainstream media since at least February 2017, a Trump voter who now no longer supports him has been found and featured in a video. Although others in the video proclaimed their support for the President or his policies, CNN highlighted that one, count them, ONE, voter who changed her mind on their home page with a link to the video titled “Trump voter: I really regret my support of him.”The comment of the one, count them, ONE, Trump voter who no...

    The growing use of anti-anxiety pills reminds some doctors of the early days of the opioid crisis. Considered relatively safe and non-addictive by the general public and many doctors, Xanax, Valium, Ativan and Klonopin have been prescribed to millions of Americans for decades to calm jittery nerves and promote a good night’s sleep. But the number of people taking the sedatives and the average length of time they’re taking them have shot up since the 1990s, when doctors also started liberally prescribing opioid painkillers. As a result, some state and federal officials are now warning that excessive prescribing of a...

    How much does the rumored “blue wave” rely on the youth vote? This is of particular concern for Democrats when it comes to the 18-29 demographic which regularly leans toward the progressive side these days. If a recent poll from the Public Religion Research Institute and the Atlantic is any indication, there’s plenty to worry about. (I actually picked this up from a Vox article, but the poll seems legitimate.) While the youngest voters seem to be quite vocal out on the protest beat, fewer than a third of them are sure that they’ll actually show up on election...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Today’s news from California. Oh, my. – A scheme to infest the U.S. Congress with an additional four nitwit senators from California by splitting the state into three parts was slapped down by the California Supreme Court on Wednesday: The court said in an en banc decision Wednesday that “significant questions have been raised regarding the proposition’s validity” and that “the potential harm in permitting the measure to remain on the ballot outweighs the potential harm in delaying the proposition to a future election.” So, the Republic is safe for now, though...
