  • Carter Page to update his lawsuits against the press after Nunes memo release

    Washington Examiner ^ | Feb. 2, 2018 | Kelly Cohen
    Former Trump campaign aide Carter Page said Friday he will be updating his slander lawsuits against various news organizations in light of the release of the Nunes memo, and hailed the release of that memo as a way to "repair" U.S. democracy. In a statement to the Washington Examiner, Page he is looking forward updating his “pending legal action in opposition," but wasn't more specific. Page’s remarks were in response to the release of a classified and controversial memo that shows the so-called Steele dossier formed an essential part of the initial and all three renewal Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act...

    President Donald Trump said, “We are going to take a strong look at our country’s libel laws so that when somebody says something that is false and defamatory about someone, that person will have meaningful recourse in our courts.” The president was responding to statements made in Michael Wolff’s new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.” Our nation does not need stronger laws against libel. To the contrary, libel and slander laws should be repealed. Let’s say exactly what libel and slander are. The legal profession defines libel as a published false statement that is damaging to...

  • Why I think the Uniparty stole the 2017 Alabama Senate special election.

    Why I think the Uniparty stole the 2017 Alabama Senate special election. Digital voting records were not saved. The Alabama Supreme Court overruled a lower court which would have forced digital records to be saved. The reason given was that many machine were not set up to do the recording and there was not time to set them up to do so. Since it’s the law requires that, how come they were not set up to record in the first place? The Uniparty was desperate to keep Moore out of the District of Corruption. Mitch’s boys spent 30 million alone...

    Not the first time that POS Brian Ross conveniently lied about or faked a story to further an agenda. It's also not the first time the jaundiced swamp-whores and crypto-Never-Trumpers at FOX ran breathlessly to their mics, barely able to contain their glee; Our president was heading for the unthinkable constitutional crisis they've been vying for and the stock market was crashing on the news. YAAAAAAAAYYYYY! This is worse than yelling "fire" in a crowded movie theater. No objective person can deny that they are attempting to overturn an American election and hobble the will of The People... often in...
  • Joy Reid Tears Into Pastor Mark Burns For Defending Roy Moore: ‘Aren’t You a Moral Leader?’

    Remember Pastor Mark Burns? He’s the black Trump-supporting pastor who tweeted out a cartoon of Hillary Clinton in blackface. Following that firestorm, he memorably walked out of a CNN interview last September after he was confronted over exaggerating and lying on his bio. Well, he’s back, as he’s been tasked with appearing on TV to defend Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore in the wake of the teen sex abuse scandal. And as you’d imagine, his appearances have been off the rails. This morning, he showed up on MSNBC’s AM Joy and really got into it with host Joy Reid....

    There’s a lot going on in DC this week, but it seems to be overshadowed by Weinstein case creep -- the penchant for women coming out of the woodwork to accuse high profile men of sexual misbehavior, much of it from decades earlier and most of it unverifiable. Some these allegations are clearly fabrications. That certainly seems to be true of the claims against Roy Moore. On Twitter, Thomas Wictor has made a credible analysis establishing that the one piece of non-testimonial record against Moore, a yearbook notation purportedly by Judge Moore in 1977, is a forgery made with two...

    One of the four women who said they had romantic or sexual encounters as teens with Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore responded Friday with a lengthy statement. The statement came from Gloria Thacker Deason via her attorney, Paula Cobin. In the statement, Deason said Moore provided her alcoholic beverages even though, at age 18, she was too young to drink under Alabama law. Moore denied that he bought underage girls alcohol in an interview Friday with Sean Hannity after Deason's statement had been released. Deason also said that The Washington Post accurately portrayed her comments to the newspaper. The...
  • Roy Moore’s Accuser Worked for Democratic Leaders and Is Actively Campaigning for Moore’s Opponent

    We have just received information that one of the women accusing Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore of soliciting dates from her when she was a teenager and he was in his 30’s is not only a passionate progressive, but she has actually worked for the DNC and is actively campaigning for Moore’s opponent, Doug Jones. Deborah Wesson Gibson, aka Debbie Gibson, was named in the Washington Post article accusing Moore, and social media evidence makes clear that she is a fervent supporter of Jones and Democrats in general, and has even worked for the DNC. Wesson Gibson is a sign...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby, and a handful of other Republican senators called on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to withdraw from the race if a report that he initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl in 1979 is true. Shelby, who backed Luther Strange in the primary but did not go on to endorse Moore in the general election, agreed. "If these allegations are true, there is no place for Roy Moore in the United States Senate," he said in a statement. Arizona Sen. John McCain tweeted that the allegations were "deeply troubling and...

    MSNBC’s Joy Reid told her fans Monday that the National Rifle Association has machinations of building an America where “packs of warlords” can kill at will. The host of “AM Joy” reacted to Sunday’s church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, by claiming NRA members — over 5 million Second Amendment advocates — seek the creation of “private armies” operating outside the rule of law. The comments came one day after 26-year-old Devin Kelley killed 26 churchgoers and wounded another 20 in a rampage reportedly linked to a domestic dispute. “Americans are living like packs of warlords, with heavily armed people...

    Less than a year after famed (or infamous) media gossip site Gawker was forced to close by a eight-figure settlement in favor of wrestler Hulk Hogan, the successor to the former Gawker Media empire finds itself in the legal crosshairs. It's for another lawsuit seeking major damages — and it’s the same lawyer taking aim. This time, attorney Charles Harder, who has also represented First Lady Melania Trump in her libel lawsuit against the Daily Mail, is handling the lawsuit on behalf of RJ Bell, real name Randall James Busack, the founder and CEO of Pregame.com, a sports handicapping Web...
  • Sarah Palin Suing New York Times For Defamation

    06/27/2017 3:47:13 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 75 replies
    Sarah Palin is suing the New York Times for defamation, according to documents filed on Tuesday obtained by The Daily Caller. The lawsuit has to do with an editorial the NYT ran on June 14 that falsely smeared Palin as inciting the 2011 shooting of Democratic Rep. Gabby Giffords by a mentally ill man who had been obsessed with Giffords for years. There is no evidence to support the NYT’s implication that Palin played a role in inciting the Giffords shooting. “Mrs. Palin brings this action to hold The Times accountable for defaming her by publishing a statement about her...
  • Coretta Scott King letter Elizabeth Warren read on Senate floor-- A total slander of Jeff Sessions

    Truth. Coretta Scott King is one of those figures in American life who is virtually immune from all criticism. To even hint that she might have done anything dishonest or untoward will immediately get you attacked as an enemy of minorities and of civil rights - so sainted and sacrosanct a figure is Mrs. King. Without a doubt, that is one of the reasons Elizabeth Warren tried to hide behind Mrs. King’s 1986 letter denouncing Jeff Sessions during the now-infamous Senate floor speech that saw her silenced by Mitch McConnell for violation of Senate Rule XIX.

Erovinkin is linked to the fake news dossier published by BuzzFeed and is suspected of helping former MI6 spy Christopher Steele in compiling the dossier. Erovinkin was found dead in his car back in December while Barack Obama was still President and news of his death is just now starting to come out.

    With just ten days to go before he is sworn in as America's forty-fifth president, the political establishment went nuclear on President-elect Donald Trump Tuesday with a double-barreled blast of “leaked” “intelligence” reports by CNN and BuzzFeed.The documents contain explosive, but unverified, opposition research that alleges intel ties between Russia and Trump and also claims Russia holds sexual blackmail material over Trump.One of the most outrageous unconfirmed allegations in the report claims the Russians recorded Trump watching Russian prostitutes urinate on each other in a Moscow hotel room previously occupied by President and Mrs. Barack Obama.Now this… Buzzfeed, Cosmopolitan, and...

    The New York Post ^ | January 10, 2017 | John Podhoretz
    So the website BuzzFeed decided to publish a series of memos that have been floating around for months alleging all kinds of terrible things about Donald Trump. Some of those terrible allegations have to do with efforts to influence the American elections and Trump. Some of them have to do with Trump’s personal sexual conduct. Readers of this newspaper know well not to include me among Trump’s supporters. But the scurrilousness of what BuzzFeed has done here is so beyond the bounds of what is even remotely acceptable it should compel even those most outraged by Trump’s political excesses to...

    When you hear people complaining about Comcast, it’s normally something to do with bad service or price hikes. But this repair tech found a whole new way to make people mad about Comcast: park your truck right over a blind hill in the middle of a snowstorm, cause multiple cars to bail into a ditch, then drive off while blaming everyone else. The video shows a pair of Comcast trucks carrying out repairs along a 40mph road in a rural area, in the middle of a snowstorm. Where the trucks are stopped is just over a blind hill, so the...
