    The Sentry Bugle ^ | Aug. 17, 2018 | James Ledbetter
    The Washington Post reported that a former top FBI official, Peter Strzok, who had been assigned to and then removed from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation, had “exchanged politically charged texts disparaging [President] Trump and supporting Democrat Hillary Clinton” and that Strzok was “also a key player in the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server.” SEE VIDEO: This is a blockbuster revelation, carrying the possibility of shattering public confidence in a number of long-held assumptions about the criminal justice system generally and the FBI and the Justice Department specifically. The Justice Department should appoint...
  • The Double Standards Of Postmodern Justice

    08/16/2018 3:39:52 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | August 16, 2018 | Victor Davis Hanson
    The New York Times recently hired as a writer and board member Sarah Jeong. The Times knew that in recent years Jeong had posted a series of unapologetically racist anti-white tweets. She had offered wisdom such as #CancelWhitePeople" and expressed hatred for males. Yet when the Times discovered less graphic versions of such tweets from newly hired technology writer Quinn Norton earlier this year, the newspaper immediately fired Norton. The message of disparate treatment was that what bothers the New York Times is not racism per se, but who is the racist and who are her targets. Over at The...

  • Man arrested at New Mexico compound was training kids to commit school shootings

    A man who was arrested at a New Mexico compound where 11 children were found abused was training kids to commit school shootings, court documents revealed. Authorities raided the compound on Friday after a monthslong search investigating a 3-year-old boy's disappearance led them to the property, where the children were discovered hungry and living in squalor. On Monday, a child's remains were found on the property, but authorities were working on a positive identification.
  • Democratic candidates told not to use ZTE, Huawei devices: source

    08/04/2018 11:01:14 AM PDT · by MNDude · 19 replies
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Democratic National Committee warned party candidates running in November elections not to use devices made by Chinese telecommunications companies ZTE Corp and Huawei Technologies because they pose a security risk, a Democratic source said on Friday. U.S. lawmakers and the Trump administration have pressured U.S. companies to not sell Huawei or ZTE (000063.SZ) products, saying they potentially could be used to spy on Americans. Earlier this year they pushed AT&T (T.N) to drop a deal with Huawei to sell its smartphones in the United States.

    Metallicman ^ | June 2018 | Editorial staff
    Every day I take my dog out for a walk. I actually do it twice a day. It is first thing in the morning and at the end of the day after the evening meal. We live on the beach, and there is a nice long park right in front of the house (it is a boardwalk) with an absolutely magnificent view of the ocean and the skyscrapers of Macao in the distance. While we are out there enjoying the morning air and watching the joggers on the beach, our dog is nose-to-the-ground and smelling everything like a canine vacuum...

    WRAL News anchors Jeff Hogan and Brad Johansen, both new to North Carolina in the past year, were enjoying Wrightsville Beach with their families Saturday when a freak accident left Hogan hospitalized. On Monday, Johansen described what happened to his friend. The surf was rough, and red flags were flying, although dozens of people remained in the water, and lifeguards had not whistled them out. Hogan, a seasoned triathlete, was body surfing with his daughters when a wave slammed him face down into a sand bar. Johansen was about a half-mile away when his son ran to tell him his...

    I’ve been rather withdrawn from macro scale happenings in the Anglosphere the last few months. Tending my own garden, so to speak. Each time I check the headlines, I see the NWO noose has tightened around our collective necks a little more. It’s amazing that most people scuttle about without a wit as to what’s happening all around them, and the seismic ramifications totalitarianism will have on their lives and the lives of their children (for those who even have any) as the American government is systematically destroyed in a similar fashion to the way engineering experts say was the...
  • Voter purge frenzy after federal protections lifted, new report says

    07/28/2018 1:15:11 PM PDT · by MNDude · 29 replies
    Nine states with a history of racial discrimination are more aggressively removing registered voters from their rolls than other states, according to a report released Friday. After reviewing voter purges nationally from 2012 to 2016, the nonpartisan Brennan Center for Justice found that the mostly Southern jurisdictions that had once been required to get changes to voting policies pre-approved by the Justice Department had higher rates of purging than jurisdictions that were not previously subject to pre-clearance. "Two million fewer voters would have been purged over those four years if jurisdictions previously subject to federal pre-clearance had purged at the...

    CNN ‘journalists’ and Fox News’ talking heads Cavuto and Baier should be instructed that “News” is what happens, not what creative liars in the MSM and social media spend so much of their time making up CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins, denied access to cover a later open press event, did not go to the Oval Office to cover yesterday’s first press event. She was there to get ‘legs’ for what CNN had already determined to be “the story of the day”. To be clear: CNN’s official statement, about their reporter being banned from the Rose Garden presser on...

    More than 150 military families say a Jacksonville-based moving company made their move a disaster, complaining of delays and ruined belongings. Action News Jax first exposed complaints on Thursday about military families spending weeks stranded without their belongings after the military assigned Suddath Relocation Systems to be their mover. Since then, dozens of military families have personally shared their stories with Action News Jax. A group of about 150 people have joined a Facebook group within the past month to vent their frustrations about Suddath military moves.

    Radio talker Glenn Beck put forth a defense of disgraced Disney movie director James Gunn, who was fired due to years of “jokes” about child rape. Beck took to Twitter to back Gunn despite his many vile posts about pedophilia. “I will stand for you. We all make mistakes, we must come together as each of us grow and change,” Beck said to Gunn. “Forgive others in hope that they will forgive themselves and others too. Reach beyond your comfort zone and be kind. You don’t need my forgiveness J.G, but I offer friendship.”

    A CVS customer snub initially characterized as a racial incident now appears to be more complicated than that. An Edgewater resident who was at CVS when a white manager called the police on a black woman after rejecting her coupon, says customer Camilla Hudson was “going off loudly,” refusing to leave, and following the other manager when he went into the employee-only part of the store. On Friday, Hudson, 53, posted on Facebook the now-viral video of CVS employee Morry Matson calling the police to remove her from the CVS Pharmacy at 6150 N. Broadway. “I had the police called...

    Before this harebrained and reckless administration is history, the nation will have cause to celebrate the public servants derided by Trumpists as the supposed “deep state.” The term itself is propaganda, intended to cast a sinister light upon men and women whom Trump and his minions find annoyingly knowledgeable and experienced. They are not participants in any kind of dark conspiracy. Rather, they are feared and loathed by the president and his wrecking crew of know-nothings because they have spent years — often decades — mastering the details of foreign and domestic policy. God bless them. With a supine Congress...
  • The World's First Full-Color, 3D X-rays Are Freaking Me Out

    07/13/2018 12:31:45 PM PDT · by MNDude · 15 replies
    A high-contrast, black-and-white image of your bones is an effective tool for spotting fractures or breaks. But after 120+ years, x-ray imaging is getting a remarkable update with 3D, full-color images that reveal far more than just the bones inside you. These images will improve what a doctor can diagnose without cutting you open. The traditional approach to imaging the insides of a patient involves blasting them with x-rays. This electromagnetic radiation has a shorter wavelength than visible light, so it can easily pass through soft tissue, but it has more trouble passing through harder materials like bones. On the...
