    Democrats, their liberal media, Never-Trump RINOs and Liz Cheney are very upset to hear Russia has been paying the Taliban to kill US soldiers in Afghanistan. They’re not doing a very good job. ** There were 22 US deaths in Afghanistan total in 2019. ** There have been 9 US deaths in Afghanistan so far this year. ** Compare that to the 496 deaths in 2010 and 412 deaths in 2011 under Obama!Facts matter.The Taliban also laughs at these latest reports. In a new report at The Daily Beast the Taliban admits Russia has been paying them for US...

    A new report raises serious questions regarding what House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff knew about bounties allegedly paid by Russia to Taliban-linked terrorists for killing American soldiers, and when he knew it. Sources told the outlet that top committee staff for Schiff were briefed all the way back in February on intelligence about a Russian military intelligence unit covertly offering the bounties to militants. But the California Democrat “took no action in response,” the outlet reported, citing those sources. What has surfaced is an allegation that Schiff did exactly what he is accusing Trump of doing right now...

    Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) told reporters Tuesday that bombshell media reports that Russia’s military intelligence paid bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. troops is “absolutely inaccurate,” making the claim after she and other Republicans were briefed at the White House. “I think that reporting was absolutely inaccurate. I had a briefing this morning and I know that the evidence is not corroborated,” she said, emphasizing that she was putting “evidence” in air quotes. “We take threats seriously. At the tactical level, obviously making sure our positions are hardened and we’re watching out for adversaries,” she added. Ernst was one...

    The Defense Department said late Monday that there is “no corroborating evidence” to support the explosive New York Times report last week that said the Russian military offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan. The report sent shock waves through Washington and prompted President Trump to outright deny knowing anything about the intel cited in the report. “To date, DOD has no corroborating evidence to validate the recent allegations found in open-source reports. Regardless, we always take the safety and security of our forces in Afghanistan—and around the world—most seriously and therefore continuously adopt measures to...

    Top U.S. intelligence officials released statements Monday criticizing leaks to the media as the Trump administration continues to defend against allegations that it knew Russia had offered bounties to incentivize Taliban-linked militants to kill coalition troops in Afghanistan. CIA Director Gina Haspel and Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe released similar statements Monday night slamming leaks as detrimental to intelligence investigations. “The selective leaking of any classified information disrupts the vital interagency work to collect, assess, and mitigate threats and places our forces at risk. It also, simply put, a crime,” Ratcliffe said in a statement. Haspel said that “leaks...

    The Iranian government is paying a bounty to the Taliban in Afghanistan for each dead American. MSNBC reports: "Iran is paying Taliban fighters $1,000 for each U.S. soldier they kill in Afghanistan, according to a report in a British newspaper. The Sunday Times described how a man it said was a 'Taliban treasurer' had gone to collect $18,000 from an Iranian firm in Kabul, a reward it said was for an attack in July which killed several Afghan government troops and destroyed an American armored vehicle. The treasurer left with the cash hidden in a sack of flour, the newspaper...

    Within a week or so, if not sooner, we can expect the Dodd-Frank Act to become law....there remain hidden provisions that will have more impact than has been generally recognized. This column will focus on three: (1) the whistleblower bounty provisions of the act, which create unprecedented incentives; (2) the act's "clawback" provisions, which potentially affect all current and former "executive officers" of a listed company but that are expressed in vague language of uncertain scope; and (3) its approach to the extraterritorial application of the antifraud provisions of the federal securities laws, where the act expressly reverses some aspects...

    TALIBAN rebels are earning a bounty of up to 200,000 Pakistani rupees (£1,660) for each Nato soldier they kill, according to insurgent commanders. The money is said to come from protection rackets, taxes imposed on opium farmers, donors in the Gulf states who channel money through Dubai and from the senior Taliban leadership in Pakistan. So far this year 213 Nato soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan, including 41 British troops, bringing the potential rewards for the Taliban to £350,000. Taliban commanders said the bounty had more than doubled since the beginning of last year.

    No good deed goes unpunished: America's multibillion-dollar liberation of Afghanistan has resulted in bounties being placed on U.S. servicemen and other citizens. Anti-American bounty hunters in the eastern province of Paktia have handed out leaflets offering $50,000 for a Westerner delivered dead and $100,000 for a live one, said Maj. Iris Hurd of the U.S. Army's Information Operations division. "Even pro-West Afghans who support the coalition are threatened with violence in the pamphlets," Fox News Channel reported today. The "credible threats” could include attacks with rockets, mortars and car bombs, Maj. Bryan Hilferty said at Bagram air base in central...
