    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — U.S. Marshals are searching for a Central Pennsylvania man accused of threatening President Trump and other officials. WNEP reports that Marshals are looking for 26-year-old Shawn Christy of McAdoo, Pennsylvania. Authorities say he should be considered armed and dangerous. Christy reportedly posted a social media post threatening to “put a bullet in the head of President Trump.” The post has since been deleted. Christy also posted about Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli. WNEP also reports that this isn’t the first time Christy has been in trouble for making threats. He and his father were sentenced to...
  • Trump mocks protester at rally: 'Was that a man or a woman?'

    At least two protesters interrupted President Trump’s rally in Minnesota on Wednesday, with the president mocking one individual’s appearance. The activists held up signs and disrupted the event minutes apart as the president railed against illegal immigration. Trump brushed aside each individual, telling them to “go home” and “say hello to Mommy.” “Was that a man or a woman? Because he needs a haircut more than I do,” Trump said as the second protester was escorted out. “I couldn’t tell,” Trump continued. “Needs a haircut.” The crowd roared, and broke into a “USA” chant.

  • LIMBAUGH: MEDIA 'GOING TO GET SOMEBODY KILLED'

    WND ^ | 20 June 2018
    President Trump calls the coalition of mainstream news outlets in America “fake news” and they respond by investigating him, casting doubt on his word, integrity and plans, report all sorts of allegations – even those that are “salacious” and unsupported like in the “dossier” that started the Russia investigation. In short, there’s never been a media so at war with a president as right now. And talk-show host Rush Limbaugh issued a warning Wednesday that if it continues, it’s going to end very badly. “I’m just gonna say it here. If the media keeps this up – if they keep...

    If your kids don't know these things, it's time you seriously considered educational alternatives for your child. And please don't say you can't afford it, because you can't afford not to. If you love your children, take them out of public school, find a good private/parochial school, homeschool, or simply keep them at home. They'll learn a lot more watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune than spending seven hours in a government-run holding tank for the children of dysfunctional parents. Below are subject matters that my peers and I learned between the ages of 10-17. These issues and facts were...

    “As the son of a Polish holocaust survivor, the images and sounds of this family separation policy is heart wrenching,” Cohen wrote, marking the first time he has distanced himself from Trump. “While I strongly support measures that will secure our porous borders, children should never be used as bargaining chips,” he added.

    President Trump caved to enormous political pressure on Wednesday and signed an executive order meant to end the separation of families at the border by detaining parents and children together for an indefinite period. “We’re going to have strong — very strong — borders, but we are going to keep the families together,” Mr. Trump said as he signed the order in the Oval Office. “I didn’t like the sight or the feeling of families being separated.” But Justice Department officials said it was not clear whether the practice of separating families could resume after 20 days if a federal...

The tax will be levied against individuals or organizations in any country due to mutual copyright treaty conventions. Article 11 Article 11 has been variously called the link tax or the snippet tax. Designed to mitigate the power over publishers that Google and Facebook have amassed in the last decade, it codifies a new copyright rule for linking to news organizations and quoting text from their stories.

    MSN/CNN ^ | 6-20-2018 | Ashley Killough and Phil Mattingly
    On the eve of two major immigration votes, weeks of hard-fought negotiations took a turn with a heated blowup on the House floor between two lead negotiators. House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, a conservative Republican from North Carolina, erupted at House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin over their agreement involving two major immigration bills, saying several times, "I'm done," while pointing in an animated fashion at the top House Republican and raising his voice as their colleagues watched. The explosion drew widespread attention from inside the chamber and out -- and surfaced once again the long-simmering tension between House...
  • THE MEDIA IMAGE OF LEAKS COMING FROM MORALLY TROUBLED WHISTLEBLOWERS IS TAKING A SERIOUS BEATING

    The Daily Caller ^ | June 20, 2018 | John R Lott Jr
    Many members of the media act like leaks of government information are coming from whistleblowers who are compelled by their consciences to do the right thing. But over the last week, that image has taken a real beating. It has recently surfaced that New York Times reporter Ali Watkins may have had an affair with James Wolfe, the former security director for the Senate Intelligence Committee. Wolfe is 32 years her senior. The New York Times is still investigating, but there appears to be a real concern that the “meteoric” and “stunning” rise of Watkins as a star reporter may...

    The migrant violence that is becoming a feature of daily life in Sweden, Germany, France and elsewhere in Europe is now coming to the United States. Did we think we would be immune? Maine’s Sun Journal reported last week that a “melee” broke out near Kennedy Park in Lewiston, Maine, initiated by “at least two dozen teenagers, preteens and adults.” This mob was made up of Somali Muslim migrants: News Center Maine reports: “[A]ccording to family members, the fight was between white and Somali members of the Lewiston community.” Our immigration chickens are, as the Rev.

    For 146 straight shows on Broadway, Bruce Springsteen has stuck to a script, playing basically the same set each night at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York. But on Tuesday night, the New Jersey rock legend veered off that script to denounce the "senior people in government" who have enacted immigration policies that have led to thousands of children being separated from their families, according to the Guardian. He reportedly called the detainment and separation of more than 2,000 children over the past six weeks "inhumane." Springsteen, a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, said the administration, which has...

    WASHINGTON — The Obama White House’s chief cyber official testified Wednesday that proposals he was developing to counter Russia’s attack on the U.S. presidential election were put on a “back burner” after he was ordered to “stand down” his efforts in the summer of 2016. The comments by Michael Daniel, who served as White House “cyber security coordinator” between 2012 and January of last year, provided his first public confirmation of a much-discussed passage in the book, “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” co-written by this reporter and David Corn,...

    American Spectator ^ | June 20, 2018 | George Neumayr
    The other night MSNBC ran a fawning documentary about James Comey. It was full of howlers about the unfathomable depths of his “integrity.” None of the clips age well, but one in particular captured the utter lunacy of Comey serving as Mueller’s presumed chief witness — a clip in which Comey accuses Trump of “lies, plain and simple” for describing the FBI as “poorly led” and in “disarray.” Here is a former FBI director categorizing Trump’s opinion, and a manifestly correct one at that, as “lies.” That’s the fatuous, un-rigorous level on which Mueller’s probe is proceeding. His forthcoming report...
  • Veep Mike Pence campaigned for Scott Wagner in Philly. A Philly lawmaker gave him the finger

    With national attention focused on the forced separation of families at America's southern border, this week isn't a very good week to be a Trump administration official (not that most are, of course). So it's not surprising that Veep Mike Pence was greeted by vocal protests when he swung through Philadelphia on Tuesday night to campaign on behalf of Republican governor candidate Scott Wagner. Some, such as state Rep. Brian Sims, D-Philadelphia, were slightly more emphatic in their opposition.
  • Far right reorganising for Tommy Robinson protests, say activists

    Guardian ^ | 20/6/18
    The far right in the UK is mobilising itself around protests over the imprisonment of the former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson, a group of MPs, union leaders and political activists have said. In a letter to the Guardian, they say a violent 15,000-strong far-right protest in support of Robinson in central London on 9 June raised concerns for those who value diversity. “The racist right are using Robinson to reorganise,” the letter says. It says Nazi salutes and Islamophobia were central features of the protest. At one point demonstrators chased police through the streets of Whitehall. “This is...
