  • Paul Manafort Is in Legal Jeopardy. But Trump may not be

    National Review ^ | Sept. 20, 2017 | Andrew McCarthy
    We already knew that Paul Manafort was in a heap of trouble. It was almost two months ago — July 26, to be precise — that his Virginia residence was raided by the FBI in the predawn hours. As I said at the time, prosecutors do not obtain warrants to toss the homes of people they regard as cooperating witnesses. When they are dealing with cooperators, prosecutors politely request that documents be produced, expecting the witness (and his lawyers) to comply. If some coercion is thought necessary, they will issue a grand-jury subpoena — an enforceable directive to produce documents,...

    Judicial Watch recently released 1,617 new pages of documents revealing numerous additional examples of classified information being transmitted through the unsecure, non-state.gov account of Huma Abedin, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, as well as many instances of Hillary Clinton donors receiving special favors from the State Department. The documents included 97 email exchanges with Clinton not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to at least 627 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over, and further contradicting a statement by Clinton that, “as far as she...

    Warrant came under authority to build counterintelligence operations focused on foreign nations, not criminal cases CNN on Tuesday loudly trumpeted but then overhyped its big scoop in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation — that the former chairman of President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign was the subject of a wiretap. News anchors around the clock suggested that the wiretap authorized by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court means that political operative Paul Manafort was probably guilty and speculated that perhaps Trump himself was implicated.
  • Mattis hints at secret 'kinetic' military options for North Korea

    09/19/2017 8:15:36 PM PDT · by JP1201 · 102 replies
    Defense Secretary Jim Mattis hinted that the United States still had military options left for dealing with North Korea, but did not elaborate when asked for details Monday. Most experts think a military strike on North Korea would invite a devastating response from Pyongyang. The city of Seoul, South Korea, home to 25 million, is well within artillery range of the North, which would most likely use conventional artillery munitions and chemical weapons. But according to Mattis, the Pentagon has a few tricks up its sleeve that wouldn't involve the decimation of Seoul.
  • Delingpole: Climate Alarmists Finally Admit ‘We Were Wrong About Global Warming’

    Breitbart ^ | sept. 19, 2017 | JAMES DELINGPOLE
    Climate alarmists have finally admitted that they’ve got it wrong on global warming. This is the inescapable conclusion of a landmark paper, published in Nature Geoscience, which finally admits that the computer models have overstated the impact of carbon dioxide on climate and that the planet is warming more slowly than predicted. The paper – titled Emission budgets and pathways consistent with limiting warming to 1.5 °C – concedes that it is now almost impossible that the doomsday predictions made in the last IPCC Assessment Report of 1.5 degrees C warming above pre-industrial levels by 2022 will come true. In order...

    A magnitude-7.1 earthquake struck the central Mexican state of Puebla on Tuesday afternoon, the US Geological Survey said. Preliminary reports put the epicenter 2.8 miles (4.5 kilometers) east-northeast of San Juan Raboso and 34.1 miles (55 km) south-southwest of the city of Puebla, according to the USGS. It was felt in the center of Mexico City, which is only about 75 miles (121 km) from the epicenter. The earthquake struck at a depth of about 33 miles (51 km). There were no immediate reports of injuries. The governor of Puebla said on Twitter that there were reports of damaged buildings....

    Washington Free Bacon ^ | 09/19/2017 | David Rutz
    President Donald Trump surprised the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday when he remarked that the collapsing situation in Venezuela was not due to the poor implementation of socialism, but rather its successful implementation. "The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented," he said. Trump paused, and there was audible muttering in the chamber before some tepid applause broke out. "From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure," he said. {..snip..}

    Washington (CNN)US investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the election, sources tell CNN, an extraordinary step involving a high-ranking campaign official now at the center of the Russia meddling probe. The government snooping continued into early this year, including a period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump. Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources familiar with the investigation. Two of these sources, however, cautioned that the evidence...

    Trump administration officials on Sunday reiterated the United States’ readiness to exercise military options if North Korea keeps up its provocative behavior, speaking after the rogue nation fired another missile over Japan and as world leaders convene for the United Nations General Assembly. But they stressed that they are still seeking to bring the regime of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to the negotiating table. “We all know that basically if North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed,”...

The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump’s administration signaled a shift to European officials from the decision in June to leave the agreement. “The U.S. has stated that they will not renegotiate the Paris accord, but they will try to review the terms on which they could be engaged under this agreement,” European Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Arias Cañete told The Wall Street Journal.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters Friday that the Trump Administration will be laying out details of a possible deal with Democrat and Republican congressional leaders to pass legislation on DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and border security measures. One reporter referenced President Donald Trump’s tweet that no chain migration could be a part of an immigration bill, then asked Sanders, “What did he mean by that?” “The President is focused on making sure that in the efforts of these ongoing conversations between both Democrats and Republicans, that we deliver on responsible immigration reform....

    The UK terror threat level has been raised from severe to critical, the highest possible level, meaning an attack is “expected imminently”. The Prime Minister announced the threat level had been raised after the Parsons Green tube bomb attack. It means that troops will patrol the streets and security will also be stepped up at major public events and terrorist targets such as railway stations and airports.
