  • Judge Who Jailed Manafort Also Cleared Hillary Clinton In Benghazi Case

    The judge appointed by Barack Obama who put Paul Manafort in jail this week previously cleared Hillary Clinton of responsibility for the deaths of four American servicemen in Benghazi, Libya in 2012. Manafort was put in jail for allegedly engaging in witness tampering, but most people see the jailing as a fraud to divert public attention away from the IG report that slammed James Comey and bolstered President Donald Trump’s arguments against the corrupt Deep State. Amy Berman Jackson, a past Bill Clinton donor and federal judge, threw out a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton filed by Sean Smith’s mother...

    I have previously written that no one knows how long legal immigrant workers will have to wait for permanent residency (i.e. green cards) in the United States, particularly from India where the wait times are the longest. But now U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has released the number of applicants for each category, so we can compute rough estimates of the number of years it will take people applying today to receive their green cards. Table 1 provides the data. As of April 20, 2018, there were 632,219 Indian immigrants and their spouses and minor children waiting for green...

    26-year-old Mariah Parker says that she's going to bring racial justice to the county. Athens-Clarke County, GA - Newly-elected County Commissioner Mariah Parker took her oath of office on Monday, with a raised "black power" fist and her other hand on the autobiography of Malcolm X. “They asked if they would like the Bible and I said no. My mother asked if there was a copy of the Constitution around. No,” Parker said, according to AJC. “I wanted Malcolm’s book. I think they saw it coming.” Parker said that she sees the parallels between herself and Malcolm X. She has...

    Phocian Fitts fatally struck an 80-year-old former teacher in a crosswalk, but said people "hit and run all the time." Boston, MA – A man who fatally struck an 80-year-old pedestrian with his car and sped away expressed no remorse during a television interview that ultimately led to his arrest for homicide (video at link). “People hit and run people all the time, you see what I’m sayin?” Phocian Fitts told WSB. “So it’s like, it just happened to be an unfortunate situation where I was driving.” The incident occurred just before 1 p.m. on Wednesday, as 80-year-old Theodore Schwalb...

  • A Nightmare that Could Have Been

    05/27/2018 8:23:07 AM PDT · by Nicojones · 14 replies
    To put the roller-coaster presidency of Donald Trump in perspective, it helps on occasion to imagine that Hillary Clinton won the election. My experience is that the exercise leads to greater appreciation of the president we have, warts and all. Start with Clinton herself. She has spent the last 18 months in a perpetual snit. “No, I’m not over it,” she confessed while turning Yale’s commencement into a self-pity party. Anyone who has dealt with her knows the “I’m a victim” schtick didn’t start with November of 2016, and would not have ended if she won. She’s been a blamer...

    How frustrating. I asked google home (gift from brother) to "Hey google, play some patriotic music". What I got was a bunch of condescending bluegrass crap. No battle hymn of the republic, no star spangled banner, no lee greenwood, no armed forces western.....just a bunch of crap that only the CA libtards actually think is patriotic music.

    The American Spectator ^ | STEVE BALDWIN
    While the media obsess over an alleged Russian conspiracy to collude with Donald Trump to affect America’s 2016 presidential election, what about Obama’s interference in the elections of other countries? Most Americans have no idea that President Obama meddled in elections all over the world. And apparently, the media decided there’s no reason for Americans to know about this illegal activity. Indeed, in 2016, the Los Angeles Times did a story on how America has interfered with other nation’s elections in the past, but they stopped short of mentioning the various foreign elections Obama tried to influence. But the same...

    WASHINGTON — Vietnam war veterans were among the hundreds who gathered at the war’s memorial wall Thursday — National Vietnam War Veterans Day — to honor those who served. Pat Shanahan, deputy defense secretary; Thomas Bowman, deputy secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs; and Elaine Duke, deputy homeland security secretary, spoke at the event. The secretaries thanked the veterans for their service and paused to remember more than 58,000 service members who never made it back. They laid a wreath at the wall during the ceremony, and all observed a moment of silence to remember those who paid the...

    RICHMOND, Va. — A two-term state lawmaker running for U.S. Senate in Virginia is already planning to violate his federal Oath of Office before his hand even touches the King James, pledging to totally ignore federal immigration law on the matter of sanctuary cities, according to reports. For Culpeper state Del. Nick Freitas, the rule of law is a matter of his whim, Saturday’s Virginia Tea Party debate revealed. The would-be Senator with an apparent allergy to making and enforcing laws, said he absolutely would not prosecute municipal authorities who create sanctuary cities, shocking many tea partiers at the...

    U.S. foreign policy toward adversaries such as Russia, North Korea and Syria may turn more aggressive if CIA Director Mike Pompeo becomes secretary of state. Pompeo has lambasted Moscow's aggression toward the West and other countries: January 2018: "I continue to be concerned not only about the Russians but about others' efforts as well. We have many foes who want to undermine Western democracy. So there's this Washington-based focus on Russian interference. I want to make sure we broaden the conversation." North Korea October 2017: Pompeo said Pyongyang was would soon be able to threaten a U.S. city with nuclear...

    Donald Trump’s recent proposals to register Islamics living in the United States and to bar more Islamics from entering this country until we can determine how to separate the dangerous ones from those who are not dangerous show that he is the only candidate who understands what a Fourth Generation world will be like. The hysterical denunciations from all other candidates except Senator Cruz demonstrate they don’t get it. While that alone may not be enough to indicate Trump would be a good president, it strongly suggests none of his opponents are fit to hold the office. Whether they like...

    Yuri N. Afanasyev, a Russian historian and former Communist loyalist who became a leading democratic politician in the late Soviet era ...died Sept. 14. He was 81. In 1989, Mr. Afanasyev helped found Memorial, an organization dedicated to exposing Stalin’s atrocities and commemorating the victims. That year he also joined the Soviet Union’s first freely elected parliamentary body, the Congress of People’s Deputies, which was created under Mr. Gorbachev’s reforms. But he grew disenchanted, doubting that its unwieldy mix of Stalinists, democrats and Communist Party functionaries could bring about change, and denouncing both its “aggressively obedient majority” and Mr. Gorbachev....
