  • The Deep State's Love Affair With Andrew McCabe

    03/19/2018 4:52:38 AM PDT · by Kaslin ^ | March 196, 2018 | Scott Morefield
    Recently fired former Deputy F.B.I Director Andrew McCabe has been drawing lots of support of late - from all the wrong places. Like a “We are the world” rendition sung by a hooded, hand-holding cabal of Satanists, ‘Deep State’ operatives, politicians, and media figures all united over the weekend to support the man who, since he WAS fired by the Trump administration after all, must surely merit the designation as the latest and greatest ‘chosen’ hero of the #Resistance.Nevermind the fact that McCabe was a partisan hack and a habitual leaker, this career government employee’s thinly veiled agenda to undermine...
  • Sessions makes his move

    03/19/2018 4:48:12 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 7 replies
    Sessions is the quintessential Eagle Scout. He will follow the rules down to the last subclause and will not make his move until every "t" has been crossed and every "i" dotted. We saw the first results of this approach last Friday – in dealing with Andrew McCabe, this century's prime example of a "cookie full of arsenic." Sessions waited until the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility (which is run by Assistant Director Candice Will, who was appointed by Robert Mueller, of all people) recommended that McCabe be fired. He then had McCabe officially informed beforehand, following established procedure to...
  • 'Chappaquiddick: Power, Privilege, and the Ted Kennedy Cover-up' Foreword Excerpt

    03/19/2018 4:42:15 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 4 replies ^ | March 19, 2018 | Howie Carr
    This excerpted foreword by Howie Carr has been republished with permission from Chappaquiddick: Power, Privilege, and the Ted Kennedy Cover-up by the late Leo Damore (Regnery Publishing, 2018).If anyone ever truly deserved a Profiles in Courage Award, it was the late Leo Damore, the author of this book.Of course, the awards are handed out by the Kennedy family, and they are all about, not courage, but Political Correctness. But no one can dispute the fact that Damore put himself and his career on the line to write this book, and that one way or another, he paid the ultimate price—as a...
  • Jim Bridenstine's NASA nomination remains in serious jeopardy (payback for opposing Boehner!)

    03/19/2018 4:37:56 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 3 replies ^ | 3/12/18 | Justin Wingerter
    U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine's nomination to lead NASA remains in serious jeopardy and his colleagues are suggesting President Donald Trump should soon nominate someone else. Bridenstine, a Tulsa Republican who was twice nominated to head the nation's space agency, has continued to draw the opposition of all Senate Democrats, independents and one Republican. A fellow Tulsa Republican, Sen. Jim Inhofe, has tried unsuccessfully to persuade that Republican senator to back Bridenstine. “I have talked to Marco — Senator Marco Rubio — and he doesn't like Jim Bridenstine,” Inhofe said of the junior senator from Florida. Florida's senators have effectively blocked...
  • Senators suspect Comey lied and plotted to double-cross Trump, seek second special counsel

    03/19/2018 4:30:29 AM PDT · by a little elbow grease · 6 replies ^ | 3/18/18 | Rowan Scarborough
    A plan of action for how a second special counsel can investigate the FBI and Justice Department is spelled out in a point-by-point letter submitted by two Republican senators. They specifically want to know whether former FBI Director James B. Comey lied to them and had a plan to double-cross President Trump. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley of Iowa and Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina sent a letter last week to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. They and two other Republicans want a special counsel with the powers of the Trump-Russia probe’s Robert Mueller to investigate suspected Justice...

    As a teacher of public school (17 years), private school (7.5 years), and homeschool (11 years), I have a truly unique perspective on education. I’ve experienced k-12 education from just about every angle imaginable. ... In my quarter-century of teaching mathematics, there’s almost nothing in education that I can say all teachers, students, administrators, parents, and politicians agree upon, save this: we want our schools to be safe. One of the great tragedies of our time has been the wanton slaughter of helpless students, faculty, and staff in what could—and should—be one of the safest places in the world. Sadly,...

    A New Jersey high school came under fire Friday after it allegedly suspended two students over a gun photo taken during a family visit to a shooting range. News of the unnamed students' suspension circulated through a Lacey Township Facebook group, according to Amanda Buron, a Lacey resident and family friend of one of the suspended students said one of the photos shared on SnapChat featured four rifles, ammunition clips and a gun duffel with the caption "fun day at the range," reported. Buron said the two students received a five-day in-school suspension after the picture drew the...

    There are so many threads of information surrounding the 2016 operation to conduct political surveillance on the Trump campaign by various officials and offices within corrupt structures of government it’s easy to get lost. However, if we take all the various bits of information and place them together a less confusing picture emerges. The {Go Deep Threads} look like this: The FISA-702(17) ‘About Queries’; the political opposition research of Fusion-GPS and Glenn Simpson; the DOJ officials and FBI officials; Bruce and Nellie Ohr; the U.S. State Department and U.N Ambassador Samantha Power; the Clinton-Steele Dossier and Christopher Steele; the FISA...

    Just a week after Forbes reported on the claim of Israeli U.S. government manufacturer Cellebrite that it could unlock the latest Apple iPhone models, another service has emerged promising much the same. Except this time it comes from an unkown entity, an obscure American startup named Grayshift, which appears to be run by long-time U.S. intelligence agency contractors and an ex-Apple security engineer. In recent weeks, its marketing materials have been disseminated around private online police and forensics groups, offering a $15,000 iPhone unlock tool named GrayKey, which permits 300 uses. That's for the online mode that requires constant connectivity...

    BERLIN (AP) - Germany's economy minister is heading to Washington with the message that American tariffs on European steel and aluminum could prompt a trade war, which would be in nobody's interest. Before leaving Sunday, Economy Minister Peter Altmaier told ARD television he wanted to prevent a "spiral" of measures and countermeasures. He says "I don't want a trade war to develop between Europe and the USA."

    Is the foundation of our revolt against the elites – which the liberals and the Fredocons call “Trumpism” because they don’t want to face the fact that Normals are tired of their corruption and incompetence – merely trolling by a bunch of malcontents? True, we do enjoy messing with them. You look at the avatar of the movement, Donald Trump, and he’s the Trollmaster Level XII Emeritus. This guy lays down the smack, and a lot of Americans are delighted by his antics.But is that all this is? Is our movement simply about slamming the people we’re annoyed at and...

    Faced with the sweeping backyard of her newly purchased $2.8 million home, Florence Fang considered her landscaping options. Should she plant some dainty cherry trees or perhaps a picturesque vineyard? Then inspiration struck: She needed a herd of 15-foot-tall dinosaurs. This wasn’t just any multi-million-dollar Hillsborough home — it was the “Flintstone House,” the iconic orange and purple domes that have become a loved (and hated) Bay Area landmark along the northbound commute up Interstate 280. Cherry blossoms weren’t going to cut it. The prehistoric critters are among the first new signs of life at the home that languished on...
