    Legal Insurrection ^ | March 23, 2017 | Kemberlee Kaye
    Wednesday, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), held a press conference where he claimed he possessed proof that “U.S. citizens involved in the Trump transition” were “incidentally” surveilled by the Obama administration. Nunes clarified that the evidence he’d reviewed was not related to, “Russia, the investigation of Russian activities, or the Trump team.” Rep. Nunes’ announcement came as a shock to ranking committee Democrats, who learned the news via the press conference. The White House was also unaware of Nunes’ findings until the press conference. An Intelligence Community (IC) insider approached Rep. Nunes with the bombshell...

    The Senate overturned late Obama-era rules Thursday meant to protect consumer privacy from internet service providers that want to sell it. The regulations were passed in October, but hadn’t yet gone into effect. They would have required ISPs like Comcast and Verizon to ask permission before using or selling personal information. ISPs collect data like your browsing history, your physical location, the apps you’re using, and your financial and health information. They can then sell that data to advertisers, who use it to tailor their marketing to your individual wants and needs. If customers don’t want their data to be...

    Leaders of the Congressional Black Caucus emerged from a meeting Wednesday at the White House to say they found some areas of agreement with President Trump on helping minority communities but still are not convinced he’s not a racist. CBC Chairman Cedrick L. Richmond said that many of their constituents urged them to not attend the meeting because of their hostility toward the president. But he said the black lawmakers wanted to offer an “opportunity to engage” Mr. Trump, who aggressively courted black voters during the campaign and vowed to make urban neighborhoods a priority for his administration.
  • As overseas ambitions expand, China plans 400 per cent increase to marine corps numbers, sources say

    South China Morning Post ^ | March 13, 2017 | Minnie Chan
    China plans to increase the size of its marine corps from about 20,000 to 100,000 personnel to protect the nation’s maritime lifelines and its growing interests overseas, military insiders and experts have said. Some members would be stationed at ports China operates in Djibouti in the Horn of Africa and Gwadar in southwest Pakistan, they said. The expanded corps is part of a wider push to refocus the world’s largest army away from winning a land war based on sheer numbers and towards meeting a range of security scenarios using highly specialised units. Towards that end, Chinese President Xi Jinping...

    Whatever original purpose public broadcasting had back in 1969, President Trump is right: The reason for its existence is long gone. With more than 900 cable networks in 2014, it is hard to argue that there is an unmet need for broadcasting. It is especially hard to argue when public broadcasting is costing the federal government nearly a half billion dollars every year. In the face of serious attempts to cut subsidies in 1995 and 2005, the rallying cry to protect government funding was "Save Big Bird!" Of course, Sesame Street is now on HBO anyway.

    Liberals are so far gone in their Trump Derangement Syndrome that they can't even wait for an impeachment of President Donald Trump to actually happen in real life. They now have to have their fantasy fulfilled in fiction. In this case it is in the form of a play, Building the Wall, and skips the actual impeachment by jumping to a post impeachment era in which people who worked for the Trump administration are put on trial. The interesting thing about the March 23 AFP (Agence France-Presse) play review is that it completely buys into the deranged liberal depiction of Trump right...

    Japan now has Asia’s only navy with two aircraft carrier-sized warships — the Kaga (pictured) The state-controlled Chinese media has sharply criticised the commissioning of Japan’s powerful new warship, which has the same name --- Kaga --- as one of the Imperial Japanese Navy’s aircraft carriers in World War II. The original Kaga, which Beijing’s English language daily, Global Times, terms a “notorious warship”, was sunk by the US Navy in the Battle of Midway in 1942. With Japanese Ship (JS) Kaga’s rebirth on Wednesday as a “helicopter destroyer”, Japan now has Asia’s only navy with two aircraft carrier-sized warships...

    The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday that there is now “more than circumstantial evidence” that Trump’s associates colluded with the Russians to interfere in the U.S. election. In an interview on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press Daily,” host Chuck Todd asked if Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, currently has a circumstantial case. “Actually, no, Chuck. I can tell you that the case is more than that. And I can’t go into the particulars, but there is more than circumstantial evidence now,” Schiff said. Asked if he’s seen direct evidence of collusion, Schiff said, “I don’t to want go...

    President Trump delivered an ultimatum to House Republicans on Thursday night: Vote to approve the measure to overhaul the nation’s health-care system on the House floor Friday, or reject it and the president will move on to his other legislative priorities. The president signaled that the time for negotiations was over with rank-and-file Republicans who were meeting late at night on Capitol Hill to try to find common ground on the embattled package crafted by House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.). The move was a high-risk gamble for the president and speaker, who have both invested significant political capital in...

    White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney emerged from a meeting with House Republicans with an ultimatum. If the House-led effort to replace Obamacare fails, the United States is stuck with Obamacare, according to several Congressional reporters on Twitter. Mulvaney was joined by a group of administration officials including senior advisors Steve Bannon, Reince Priebus, and Kellyanne Conway for an evening meeting with House Republicans in an effort to break the logjam on the bill. Most House Freedom Caucus members refuse to vote for the bill without major changes. Moderate House Republicans have also protested the bill.

If you have a Windows 7 or 8.1 PC that you bought, built, or upgraded in the past year or so, it would behoove you to understand exactly what Microsoft plans.

Terry says he has determined that the president's business is in "full compliance" because profits from the hotel won't go directly to Trump while he's president.The 2013 lease for the Trump International Hotel expressly forbids any federal official from participating or benefiting from the project, a $200 million renovation of...

    The Trump administration is making it tougher for millions of visitors to enter the United States by demanding new security checks before giving visas to tourists, business travelers and relatives of American residents. Diplomatic cables sent last week from Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson to all American embassies instructed consular officials to broadly increase scrutiny. It was the first evidence of the “extreme vetting” Mr. Trump promised during the presidential campaign.

However, Cook County had a net loss of 66,244 people to other parts of the United States, which more than offset the components of population growth.

    The worst enemies of President Trump may be his own Secret Service who have sworn to protect him. The so-called “Shadow Government” is testing the waters. Are they practicing for a real “Coup” to take President Trump out of the White House? We can only speculate at this point.

    Office of Management and Budget director Mick Mulvaney made clear Thursday evening that President Donald Trump is done negotiating on the hotly-debated health care bill and wants a vote on Friday. And, if the president doesn't get a vote to repeal and replace Obamacare, he will move on to other priorities, Mulvaney said according to a source in the room during the tense talks with GOP members. The latest salvo comes after House Republican leaders abruptly postponed a planned vote on the GOP health care bill Thursday as they struggled to find sufficient support to pass it.

    Rocket Lab, a startup based in Los Angeles and New Zealand whose rocket boosters use 3D printed engines, has raised $75 million in a Series D financing round. The money will be used to expand manufacturing facilities for the Electron launch vehicle. There’s something a bit special about Electron, Rocket Lab’s small launch vehicle. The vehicle, which completed flight qualification in 2016, will be able to launch 330-pound satellites into orbit a few hundred miles above Earth. It is designed to be manufactured at a rate of one per week, and will sell for about $5 million per flight. Most eye-catching,...

This is the first time that a Democratic Party official has actually endorsed illegal voter fraud activity. The video is at the link on Conservative Review.

Everybody knows Trump was joking, but born out of this was the charge that Trump was in collusion with Putin to cheat the election. This only works because the MSM facilitates this. Chuck Schumer threatened Trump when he said that the intelligence agencies will make life difficult for him. This was sinister in nature -- compared to Trumps levity. It's pretty clear now that Schumer's threat was more than a threat. It was marching orders.

The drug could help damaged DNA to miraculously repair and even protect Nasa astronauts on Mars by protecting them from solar radiation. A team of researchers developed the drug after discovering a key signalling process in DNA repair and cell ageing. During trials on mice, the team found that the drug directly repaired DNA damage caused by radiation exposure or old age. 'The cells of the old mice were indistinguishable from the young mice after just one week of treatment,' said lead author Professor...

    Former President Obama stepped into the Obamacare repeal fight Thursday, rejecting claims that his health law is in a “death spiral” and saying it can thrive — as long as President Trump properly administers it. “The reality is clear: America is stronger because of the Affordable Care Act,” Mr. Obama said in a statement Most critically, though, Mr. Obama said his law is not in the dreaded “death spiral” that Republicans and some health executives have said. Under the death spiral, young healthy customers are chased from the marketplace by rising costs, leaving an older, sicker population that then requires...

    Donald Trump should see a nice little approval bonus. The Democrats will be told they should compromise strongly with Donald Trump. She asked if I followed politics closely. I asked if "LOL!" was a legitmate answer. It wasn't. Lots and lots of other questions: - Strongly believe repeal Obamacare - Strongly believe increase defense spending. - Strongly approve of the armed services. and so on and so on.

    The Social Memo ^ | 3/23/17 | Aurelius
    As part of "Diversity Education Week," NC State’s Union Activities Board hosted an event today called "Dear White People," in which white students are told directly that they are racist. The signs ranged from asking white people if they have read the 13th Amendment to statements that said that "dating a black person to piss off your parents is a form of racism." Another sign read, "Dear White People: Are you tired of your hum drum, Wonderbread existence of accidental racism and wishing you could sip on Henny out yo crunk cup without a [expletive] giving you the side-eye?

    Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee this week, a source told Fox News. Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President...

    Yesterday, Republican Devin Nunez Nunes held an explosive press conference outside the White House in which he told reporters that communications from the Trump team were picked up and disseminated within the government during the 2016 campaign. Not surprisingly, the comments ruffled some liberal feathers and the mainstream media launched an immediate smear campaign calling for Nunes to resign his post immediately. Now, according to Fox News sources, congressional investigators expect that a potential “smoking gun” from the NSA establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the...

    Brussels last night made an extraordinary threat to disrupt flights to Europe and hold British goods at the border if the UK refuses to pay a £50 billion Brexit divorce bill. The EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier said the UK would pay a heavy price if it tried to walk away from the EU without paying for its “responsibilities”. In a mocking speech, he quoted Winston Churchill, saying: “The price of greatness is responsibility.” Government lawyers have told Theresa May that the UK has no duty to pay a penny towards the EU’s ongoing costs after leaving. A report by...

No clue about who was safe or not. Liberals convince themselves multiculturalism works because we all die together, too. An entire city of monkeys: see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. Blind. Deaf. And dumb.

    as everyone has heard today, a suspect was apprehended in Israel today for making threatening calls to JCCs around the country. Unlike the Muslims, I will not argue for leniency or mercy for him on account of colonialism/imperialism/Zionism, nor will I do what a lot of blacks do by blaming bad behavior on slavery/Jim Crow. Whatever his motive, rape him, do whatever to him in prison and I'll laugh at him. What likely IS the culprit is the plague of Jewish self-hatred. I've seen it from the time I was a kid to the present, and this loser is an...
