  • Media Buries Bombshell On Clinton Investigation In Comey Book

    04/16/2018 6:39:57 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 28 replies
    There is almost no news in the James Comey book. It’s a self-absorbed diatribe by a petty man who botched virtually everything he touched in the past two years; full of known innuendo, known misconceptions, known deceits and known untruths. As Nate Silver, a man of the left, suggested, it’s title should more accurately be “A Higher Royalty.” But the media — oh the media! — they just cannot stop giddily reporting on how Comey calls Trump “unethical” and “untethered from the truth” and acting like a Mafia “boss.” This is essentially name-calling from a guy who has made it...
  • VANITY: Are Citizen Arrests legal?

    I remember that citizen arrests were considered legal at one point, but I don't know if they are anymore. And if they are, does that apply to members of Congress when we're clearly seeing them perform acts of treason and sedition? If they are, what is the process? Do we have to have a warrant? Or just approach the subject, inform them they are being arrested for sedition and treason, and then deliver them to the nearest police station?

    A very interesting development is unfolding as a result of internet researcher TracyBeanz [Twitter HERE YouTube HERE] and some insightful dot connecting by those following. The outline begins via a relatively under-reported accusation about former Attorney General Loretta Lynch by former FBI Director James Comey in his upcoming book. According to ABC News Comey writes in A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership, that he became the public face of the investigation partly because of a mysterious development which he felt could cast serious doubt on Lynchs independence.

    Florida Gov. Rick Scott doesn't talk about climate change. He notoriously declared "I'm not a scientist" when asked his thoughts on humanity's well-documented impact on the warming planet, banned the phrase in his administration (a charge he denies) and backed up President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris accord. On Monday, an unusual group intends to sue Scott for ignoring the climate threat: Kids. Seven young Florida residents the youngest is 10, the oldest is 20, and one is a University of Miami marine science student are the named plaintiffs in a lawsuit that seeks to force...

Hes president of the Niskanen Center, a libertarian-leaning Washington, DC, think tank he founded in 2014. He and his colleagues there are trying to build support for the passage of an aggressive federal carbon tax, through discussions with Washington insiders, with a particular focus on Republican legislators and their staff. Lesson one: Pick the right targets Political scientists consistently find that mass opinion doesnt drive the policy debate, so much as the other way around....

    City and country governments ignored federal detainer requests and released 142 suspected members of MS-13 and other criminal gangs in the eight months up to June 2017, says a report from the Department of Homeland Security to the Senates judiciary committee. The gang release data is the agencys most up-to-date, according to the agency, which delivered the answers in response to routine oversight questions by committee members. The data does not cover any releases after June 19, 2017, when city governments escalated their opposition to the legal deportation of illegal migrants in their cities and counties. Currently, the Department of...

    Many of us are between 65 and death, i.e. old. My friend sent me this excellent list for aging . . . and I have to agree it's good advice to follow. 1. Its time to use the money you saved up. Use it and enjoy it. Dont just keep it for those who may have no notion of the sacrifices you made to get it. Remember there is nothing more dangerous than a son or daughter-in-law with big ideas for your hard-earned capital. Warning: This is also a bad time for investments, even if it seems wonderful or fool-proof....

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is fundraising off the firing of our only hope Special Counsel Robert Mueller, but one problem: Mueller has not been fired. The California Democrat sent out an email last week titled Mueller FIRED and asked people to donate to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) amid speculations that President Donald Trump may fire Mueller in retaliation for the FBI raid on his lawyer Michael Cohen. But as the actual fundraiser email text acknowledges, Mueller was not fired by Trump.

    Although the recent Syrian airstrikes were double the size of last year's, President Trump reportedly selected one of the more restrained proposals designed by the Pentagon. The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed sources, reported that Trump was presented with a wide array of options. There were intense discussions on the best approach after Defense Secretary Jim Mattis presented the three military options, the report said. Trump chose a restrained response. The paper reported that the most expansive proposal included airstrikes on Russian air defense capabilities in Syria. The attack would have been three times the size of the operation carried...

    Dinesh D'Souza is an American patriot whose prosecution was politically motivated, targeted under the Obama admin for "exceeding campaign contributions". Tried & convicted under the campaign finance law by the sum of $20K, in a case involving no corruption, he was sentenced to 8 months overnight confinement, a substantial fine, mandatory psychological counseling and 5 years of probation and community service. No American has ever been prosecuted, let alone sentenced, for a crime of this nature involving no quid pro quo. Without a pardon, Dinesh is unable to exercise his right to vote or to legally purchase a firearm. Dinesh's...
