    Full transparency, this editor can’t begin to explain everything that Svetlana Lokhova details here in this crazy long thread BUT it’s definitely worth the time it takes to read through. Especially if you’ve been following the Flynn case.

    At around 8:30am on November 26th, what appeared to be a potential violation of the tightly controlled airspace ringing Washington D.C. occurred, sparking off a course of events that drew national attention. The White House and the Capitol went into lockdown as a Coast Guard MH-65, callsign Blackjack, scrambled to intercept the possible intruder and F-16s were sent to runway alert at Andrews AFB, prepared to rocket into the sky if needed at a moment's notice. Confusion followed as to what exactly was detected and why. Now, according to officials with direct knowledge of the events, here is what actually...

    William Shatner is one of our very favorite accounts on Twitter mainly because he just sort of hangs out with normal, everyday people which usually leads to him slapping trolls around. You know, like the rest of us. He’s not focused on pushing some social justice movement or complaining about Trump like other celebrities … nope. Usually, he’s talking about various projects he’s working on while schooling ‘younguns’ about this or that. For example:

    It is fair to say Democratic 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden has become a gaffe machine.His continues slip-ups and blunders have become so glaringly apparent that even the liberals rooting for him are becoming embarrassed.Recently, Biden claimed twice he met with Parkland, Florida, shooting survivors when he was Vice President, but there was one small problem.He was out of office when the attack took place.

    I’m optimistic by nature—as a scientist, you have to be. But my hopeful feeling is not wishful thinking; it is firmly grounded in the logic of SETI. Half a century sounds like a long time, but the search is truly in its early days. Given the current state of SETI efforts and abilities, I feel that we’re on the cusp of learning something truly revolutionary.

    President Donald Trump is one of the most controversial world leaders in modern times, igniting the ire of America’s staunchest allies. Whether it’s the proposed Muslim ban, the US border wall and immigration, or his praise of authoritarian leaders, Trump is deft at inciting deep divisions among the public. In 2018, political scientist Daniel Drezner summarized this consensus in The Washington Post: “The world hates President Trump.” Data from the Pew Research Center illustrates Drezner’s thinking. For the residents of US allies, their confidence in the US president dropped substantially from the last year of Obama’s presidency to the beginning...

    Former special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, at long last, testified before Congress about his investigation into Russian interference and President Trump’s conduct related to it. Mueller appeared before the House Judiciary Committee in the morning and the House Intelligence Committee in the afternoon. Here’s what we learned from both sessions. 1. Mueller struggled If Democrats hoped this would be a seminal moment, they will apparently leave sorely disappointed — in large part because their star witness was no star. Mueller spoke haltingly, seemed not to remember key details and tripped over himself even when members weren’t trying to trip...

    So in the middle of the media firestorm featuring President Trump and his battle with four progressive Democrat freshman members in the House calling themselves “The Squad” — a whirlwind of stories over racism and anti-Semitism — The Washington Post ran a big story on none other than George Takei. Mr. Takei, of course, is famous for his role in the original Star Trek series as Hikaru Sulu, the helmsman of the starship USS Enterprise. He is now 82, described by the Post as an “activist for gay rights and social justice.” Takei is also the author of a new...

    by Jenn Carter Left-wing actress Alyssa Milano slammed veteran actor Jon Voight’s recent remarks praising President Donald Trump, calling the Academy Award-winning star an “F-lister trying to stay relevant.” The response from the Twitterverse however was not what she intended. In a pair of videos entitled “To my fellow Americans,” Voight lauded President Trump for confronting creeping leftism in the United States and their “absurd words of the destruction.” The Ray Donovan star also called Trump the “greatest president” since Abraham Lincoln. “I’ve said this once and I’ll say it again, that our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers.

    A Wisconsin judge ruled on Friday that the man who admitted to slaying the parents of 13-year-old Jayme Closs before abducting and holding her captive for 88 days will spend the rest of his life serving two life terms in prison without parole, according to the New York Times and Associated Press. In late March, Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, of Gordon, Wisconsin, pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree intentional homicide and one kidnapping. This was just five months after authorities discovered Jayme’s parents, James and Denise Closs, shot to death in the family’s Barron, Wisconsin, home, and realized the...

    Jen Hummel, 35, has always been a runner. After spending her high school years running cross country, she kept it up recreationally, balancing training runs and races with taking care of her two young children. “For me, it’s the best exercise and gives me time to think,” she says. But in early December, she started to experience pain and discomfort almost immediately after she’d start running. “I had pain going down my arms and in my chest. It would come up in my chin,” she explained. “I’ve always been someone who can push myself, but after I’d get up to...

    Bad teaching is a common explanation given for the disastrously inadequate public education received by America’s most vulnerable populations. This is a myth. Aside from a few lemons who were notable for their rarity, the majority of teachers I worked with for nine years in New York City’s public school system were dedicated, talented professionals. Before joining the system I was mystified by the schools’ abysmal results. I too assumed there must be something wrong with the teaching. This could not have been farther from the truth. Teaching French and Italian in NYC high schools I finally figured out why...
