    New York Daily "News" ^ | Updated: Saturday, January 20, 2018, 12:00 PM | Jessica Chia
    President Trump may be having an extramarital affair in the White House, according to the latest bombshell claim from “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff. Wolff said Friday on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” that he was “absolutely sure” of such a tryst, but acknowledged that he lacked “ultimate proof.” “I didn’t have the blue dress,” Wolff told Maher, referring to the key piece of evidence from Bill Clinton’s notorious Oval Office dalliance with Monica Lewinsky. The author said he’d even planted a clue in his controversial best-seller. “You’ll know it,” he said. “Now that I’ve told you, when...

    The White House ^ | July 6, 2017
    Our adversaries are doomed because we will never forget who we are. And if we don’t forget who are, we just can’t be beaten. The Polish martyr, Bishop Michael Kozal, said it well: “More horrifying than a defeat of arms is a collapse of the human spirit.” Through four decades of communist rule, Poland and the other captive nations of Europe endured a brutal campaign to demolish freedom, your faith, your laws, your history, your identity — indeed the very essence of your culture and your humanity. Yet, through it all, you never lost that spirit. Your oppressors tried to...

    Dear Mike Le Deplorable [my Twitter handle], As part of our recent work to understand Russian-linked activities on Twitter during the 2016 U.S. presidential election, we identified and suspended a number of accounts that were potentially connected to a propaganda effort by a Russian government-linked organization known as the Internet Research Agency. Consistent with our commitment to transparency, we are emailing you because we have reason to believe that you either followed one of these accounts or retweeted or liked content from these accounts during the election period.

    PARIS — Slovenian-born Melania Trump has been unafraid to go against her husband's "America First" agenda and stay true to her roots, if there's a message to be taken from her bold, foreign-flavored wardrobe in 2017. In her first year as first lady, Mrs. Trump has often wrapped herself in the clothes of her home continent as several American designers publicly refused to dress her in what was a fashion industry-wide backlash against her unpopular spouse. The first first lady to be born in continental Europe, Trump grew up in Sevnica in Slovenia, in the southern Balkans, just over 100...

    Everyone thinks they know Hillary Clinton. Lucas Hnath’s Hillary and Clinton, now playing at Second Thought Theatre through February 3, re-introduces the famous figure as a woman named Hillary running for president of a country called the United States of America in January 2008 in an alternate universe. The characters have familiar names, but this play is not about the reviled and revered woman as portrayed in the media.(snip) “Hopefully, they will relate to her strength and her tenacity and relate to her emotionally. They will relate to her on all those levels and know there’s no one way to...

    It has been about a year since Trump announced that he was aware that he was being wiretapped. Rather than demanding members of the FBI resign, he silently accepted a probable member of the swamp to lead an investigation on him. Revelation after revelation of the evil Deeds that the FBI did inclusion with Hillary come out daily. Yet, other than a few tweets, Trump has not fought back, nor has he encouraged Attorney General Sessions to do anything. Here is what I think is about to happen:

    On Monday, 19th District Court Judge Ralph Strother will hear arguments to disqualify the McLennan County District Attorney's Office from prosecuting at least two upcoming Twin Peaks trials. Strother will hear motions filed on behalf of bikers Billy McRee and Jorge Daniel Salinas at 10 a.m. on Jan. 22. "The witnesses referenced in the motion are under subpoena and are expected to testify," Salinas' attorney Brian Bouffard said in a statement. "Predictably, Abel Reyna and the various DA witnesses are seeking to quash their subpoenas and thereby avoid testifying under oath, and that issue will also be addressed on Monday."...

"We knew the Gulfstream V would come quickly, and now we have it. And it’s all because of you, the faithful KCM Elite CX Team members–combined with the blessings of a FAITHFUL GOD!" Copeland didn't disclose how much the "ministry" paid for the GV. KCM explained that the Holy Spirit had confirmed...

    I've been reading for some time now that North Korea is a proxy for the CIA. I assumed this assertion was at least in part tacit or metaphorical. However, Q drop #556 may indicate that the statement is true on its face. If correct, then drop #556 may be interpreted to mean that President Trump and his patriotic warriors have hard evidence that Obama and all the names on the email list below have committed treason via terrorism against the US. Is this "checkmate"? #556 Given that Q Drop #517 specifies "TREASON AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS" and that FReepers reached...

    I received a text from my Son In Law who is deployed in Africa. He sent me a text photo of the TV in the O-Club. All it showed was the logo of AFN...and a statement that said due to the government shut down, AFN will remain off air until the issue is resolved. Now, I know TV is not "essential." But I sure as hell would not want a few thousand troops to miss the Conference Finals later. Talk about a morale suck.
