  • Susan Rice makes claim Russians could be behind violent George Floyd demonstrations

    Former Obama administration national security adviser Susan Rice bizarrely suggested in a televised interview Sunday that the Russians could be behind the violent nationwide demonstrations following the in-custody death of George Floyd, although she offered no evidence for the incendiary claim. Rice's made the claim after top Democrats insisted for years that the White House had conspired with Russia, although Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence to support any conspiracy with Russia by any U.S. actor to influence the 2016 election. Her remarks also came amid efforts by Democrats to pin the blame on outside white supremacist agitators, even...
  • Russian warplanes in Libya could open new phase in Middle East's biggest proxy war

    The warplanes, a mix of at least 14 MiG-29 fighters and Su-24 fighter-bombers, appear to have taken off from a base in Russia sometime in the middle of May and flown to Hmeimeem, Russia’s airbase on Syria’s Mediterranean coast. There they were repainted, their Russian Federation Air Force markings obscured, before flying more than 1,200 miles and landing in eastern Libya, in territories controlled by Russia’s ally, strongman-in-waiting Khalifa Haftar. The deployment, which the Pentagon revealed last week and Moscow denied, is the latest in a series of escalations that have seen all types of weapons — Turkish and Emirati...

    Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's testimony next week begins a frenetic stretch of investigations, document releases, subpoenas and witness interviews. The investigation of the Russia probe investigators is picking up steam as summer approaches, with multiple congressional committees ramping up subpoenas, witness interviews and hearings. On the legal front, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's fate hangs in the balance at an appeals court, while Trump administration officials ponder declassifying additional explosive documents at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. The summer extravaganza of accountability kicks off this coming week at the Senate Judiciary Committee, where former...
  • Black Protester Faces Antifa Rioter And Tells Him To Stop Destroying The City (Video)

    What started as a peaceful Justice for George Floyd protest in Seattle turned violent thanks to fringe Progressive and Antifa activists. And their abhorrent behavior is being defended by bad-faith voices, pretending we’re under assault by white supremacists. Or, even worse, peaceful protesters who are fine with the destruction. Americans have the right to peacefully assemble. This is beyond question. What folks don’t have the right to do is destroy property, assault officers, disrupt freeway traffic, or steal police weapons. Yet portions of Seattle were trashed, burned, and destroyed thanks to a large group of Antifa members, anarchists, and their...

    The Federalist ^ | May 31, 2020 | Davis Marcus
    I can’t believe they even tried it. On Saturday morning Minnesota officials came out with an audacious and absurd explanation for the looting and arson that struck Minneapolis this week. Apparently it was white supremacists from out of state who pretended to be actual protestors in an attempt to discredit the protest. The evidence? A vague claim and a lie. It turns out that most of those arrested were actually Minnesota residents. The hypocritical mental gymnastics from the liberal media in the past 72 hours were amazing enough to earn a perfect 10 from the stingiest East German judge. First,...

    #FoxNews' #LaraLogan said on #LauraIngraham's show that #ANTIFA "professional agitators" are behind the riots springing up across America following the death of #GeorgeFloyd at the hands of #Minnesota police. Lara Logan said ANTIFA agitators who are mostly White outsiders, are only "exploiting" #BlackLivesMatter to achieve their anarchist agenda, and have zero interest in racial justice. Even though she didn't explicitly say so, it was hard to miss the #terrorism theme behind Lara Logan's report

    In a press conference Saturday, St. Paul, Minnesota Mayor Melvin Carter divulged that every person arrested the previous night came from out of state. This mirrors previous riots by antifa and Black Lives Matter that featured professional protesters bused in from out of state into cities across America to foment violence.

    We knew from recent rallies and riots that it’s highly likely the groups behind today’s riots are Domestic terrorists, revolutionary communists, US based radical Islamist organizations and others related to the Democrat Party. Today we have more proof this is the case. We reported a few days ago that Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar’s daughter tweeted out support for the protestors: Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s daughter Isra Hirsi, retweeted a list of supplies for “comrades” who are rioting in Minneapolis. Isra Hirsi is the co-founder of US Youth Climate Strike and her Twitter bio says she ‘hates capitalism.’ Isra Hirsi...

  • Trump is right – Antifa has hijacked protests of George Floyd’s death and turned them into riots

    Fox News ^ | May 31 2020 | Jim Hanson
    President Trump was right when he placed blame Saturday for the riots tearing apart cities around the country on Antifa and other radical left-wing groups. He should now go one step further and declare Antifa a domestic terrorist organization. The rioting this past week was ostensibly sparked by the death of George Floyd – a 46-year-old black man who was arrested by Minneapolis police Monday for allegedly trying to use a counterfeit $20 bill to buy cigarettes. There is no question that Floyd’s death was horrific and should never have happened. But in fact, many of the rioters affiliated with...

    Talking Points Memo ^ | 12/5/2011 | Brian Beutler
    Despite some unfavorable polling, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi still thinks the Occupy movement has been politically helpful to Democrats. In an interview with TPM on Friday, she said there’s no recent precedent for the sort of election House Democrats are going into. In 1994 and 2010, Congressional Republicans ran against Washington controlled by Democrats. In 2006, Congressional Democrats ran against Republican corruption and President George W. Bush. This time around, President Obama will carry the national message for the party while individual candidates use it as they see fit to win in their districts. That national message, Pelosi said,...

  • Transcripts of calls between Flynn, Russian diplomat show they discussed sanctions

    WAPO ^ | May 29 2020 | Devlin Barrett and Greg Miller
    Transcripts of phone calls in late 2016 between President Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn and a Russian diplomat were released Friday, showing that the two did discuss sanctions as the incoming administration sought to avoid escalating the conflict over Russian interference in the presidential election. The conversations were secretly monitored by U.S. agents as part of intelligence-gathering on then-Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents in early 2017 when he was asked if he discussed sanctions with the ambassador. He has since argued he was unfairly targeted by the FBI,...

    The Hill ^ | 05 30 2020 | Jonathan Turley
    “Remember ... Ambassador, you're not talking to a diplomat, you're talking to a soldier.” When President Trump’s incoming national security adviser, Michael Flynn, said those words to then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, he also spoke to American intelligence agents listening in on the call. For three years, congressional Democrats have assured us Flynn’s calls to Kislyak were so disturbing that they set off alarms in the closing days of the Obama administration. They were right. The newly released transcripts of Flynn’s calls are deeply disturbing — not for their evidence of criminality or collusion but for the total absence of such...

    Last week I wrote about some indications that Russia’s coronavirus numbers may not be accurate. Specifically, the number of health care workers who’ve died from the virus is far higher as a percentage of total deaths than anywhere else in the world. Today, Russia tried to allay suspicious that it’s numbers aren’t accurate by releasing some additional details about how it calculated deaths last month: The Russian government on Friday presented more detailed mortality figures for last month that include more deaths linked with the coronavirus, in a bid to dispel suspicions from some Russian and Western experts that...
