  • Trump - Russia Collusion in German

    03/20/2018 2:55:05 PM PDT · by Auslander154 · 14 replies
    I found this great summary of the Russian Collusion story written in German at It would be a great reference to send to any German speaking friends you have. Our German friends most likely do not get this kind of summation in Das Bild or Der Spiegel. I have tried to decipher it into English so that you have an idea of what you are sending. It is interesting that the German version goes into fuller detail than the English rendition on The Epoch Times. They even had a bit of fun with Obama talking about him discovering...

    I walked by the television this morning and saw Trump's picture and the block letters "FACEBOOK SCANDAL" in red on a blue background. The sound was turned down, but the earnest-appearing, attractive young woman in a tight black form fitting dress was clearly portraying the appropriate gravity for this "situation". It was the same thing I saw last night before going to bed, an older, serious looking man with a similar backdrop and identical grave look on his face. Again, the sound was turned down, but it is clear there is a real problem in American society right now. And...

  • Mueller’s Investigation Flouts Justice Department Standards (Boundless hunt for undiscovered crimes)

    Richard Gates was charged with $100 million in financial crimes — and pled guilty to two minor offenses, one of them highly questionable. These columns have many times observed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s failure to set limits on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. To trigger the appointment of a special counsel, federal regulations require the Justice Department to identify the crimes that warrant investigation and prosecution — crimes that the Justice Department is too conflicted to investigate in the normal course; crimes that become the parameters of the special counsel’s jurisdiction. Rosenstein, instead, put the cart before the horse:...

    Rep. Adam Schiff said Thursday the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation needs to continue, even with the special counsel’s ongoing investigation into the matter. “We can’t simply rely on Bob Mueller cause his job is different than ours,” Mr. Schiff, California Democrat, said on CNN. He was referring to special counsel Robert Mueller who is leading the investigation into collusion claims between the Trump campaign and Russia. “It’s not his job to tell the country what happened...

    In a textbook example of denial and projection, Trump foes in and out of government wove a sinister yarn meant to take him down. Barack Obama keeps a close watch on his emotions. “I loved Spock,” he wrote in February 2015 in a presidential statement eulogizing Leonard Nimoy. Growing up in Hawaii, the young man who would later be called “No-Drama Obama” felt a special affinity for the Vulcan first officer of the U.S.S. Enterprise. “Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy,” the eulogy continued. “Leonard was Spock. Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed.” It is the rare...

    Donald Trump's friends on Capitol Hill have delivered. The President is now wielding a powerful new weapon in his war of credibility with America's spy agencies over their view that Russia helped put him in the White House, after House Republicans suddenly shuttered their probe into election meddling. "THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE HAS, AFTER A 14 MONTH LONG IN-DEPTH INVESTIGATION, FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION OR COORDINATION BETWEEN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIA TO INFLUENCE THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION," Trump wrote in an exuberant tweet on Monday night. The committee stunned Washington most by taking direct aim at the assessment...

    American Spectator ^ | 3/8/18 | Kevin Mooney
    Last week, a congressional committee released a jarring and persuasive report on Russian meddling in American politics. Despite a media feeding frenzy over anything tangentially connected to questions of Russian interference, this report went largely unnoticed. The U.S. House Science, Space, and Technology Committee’s “Russia’s Social Media Meddling in U.S. Energy Markets” details Russian funding of U.S. environmental groups, which used resources to protest the process of fracking and the existence of the Keystone pipeline. Russia, the world’s largest oil producer, figures to watch the U.S. surpass it within five years. Killing fracking and the pipeline stand as two ways...

    A panel of national and local experts, comprised mostly of African-Americans, lambasted Chicago city officials in a meeting Wednesday night for how they have worked closely with the Obama Foundation to build the Obama Presidential Center on public land despite criticism and serious concerns from representatives of the South Side neighborhood. "You have all this talk about collusion between Trump and Russia, right? To me, that sounds like collusion between the city and the university, and we see the same thing happening in relation to this," one of the panelists, Jawanza Malone, executive director of the Kenwood-Oakland Community Organization, said....

    Around the world, there is profound concern that America is giving up the mantle of global leadership. Our steady retreat over the past decade has contributed to a wide array of complex global challenges — a dangerous erosion of the rule of law, gross human rights violations and the decline of the rules-based international order that was designed in the aftermath of two world wars to prevent conflict and deter mass atrocities.

    America’s anti-fracking enviros had a strange benefactor. While allegations of the Donald Trump campaign colluding with Russians to alter the presidential election outcome remain unproven at best, a clear money trail and U.S. intelligence reports demonstrate Russia’s active campaign of funding U.S. environmental groups. On March 1, U.S. House Science, Space, and Technology Committee’s chairman, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), released a report on “Russia’s Social Media Meddling in U.S. Energy Markets.” The report details Russia’s motives in interfering with U.S. energy markets, influencing domestic energy policy, and manipulation of Americans via social media propaganda. “This report reveals that Russian agents...
  • Trump’s Attorneys Make Solid Case For Freeing Julian Assange in Legal Filing

    President Donald Trump’s attorneys made a solid case for preemptively pardoning Julian Assange in a motion to dismiss a WikiLeaks-related lawsuit against the Trump campaign. While preemptive pardons are rare — they are not unheard of. The motion, filed on December 29, was in response to a lawsuit by two Democratic Party donors who allege that the Trump campaign and former adviser Roger Stone conspired with Russians to publish the leaked Democratic National Committee emails. The outlandish lawsuit, based largely on conspiracy theories, was orchestrated by a group called Protect Democracy — which happens to be run by former attorneys...

Nunberg forwarded an email from the office of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III seeking his appearance in front of the panel on Friday. Nunberg said he does not plan to comply with the subpoena, including either testimony or providing documents. “Let him arrest me,” Nunberg said. “Mr. Mueller should understand I am not going in on Friday.”

    It was at that point that Facebook decided to get involved. Andrew Bosworth, a longtime member of the Facebook team who co-invented some of Facebook’s main features such as News Feed, Messenger, Groups, and was previously working as the VP of Ads, took to Twitter to correct both Clinton and Cutler. Bosworth — or Boz as he is popularly known — posted a chart comparing the CPM price of Clinton and Trump’s advertisements. What it showed is that on average, Trump paid more per CPM than Clinton. After some discussion we've decided to share the CPM comparison on Trump campaign...

    The Federal Election Commission (FEC) fined Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign $14,500 for accepting illegal in-kind foreign contributions from the Australian Labor Party (ALP) during the 2016 elections. The ruling stems from a February 2016, conservative activist group Project Veritas video showing Australian nationals working for the Sanders campaign on the dime of the Australian taxpayer funded ALP. Republican and former New Hampshire House speaker William O’Brien filed a complaint with the FEC shortly after Project Veritas made the footage public, alleging the ALP had made “prohibited foreign contributions” to the Sanders campaign, according to WMUR. The FEC levied the fine...

But far more important than what he has said is what Trump has done. That same caveat applies to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.Start with two givens: Vladimir Putin is neither stupid nor content to watch an aging, shrinking, corrupt, and dysfunctional — but still large and nuclear — Russia recede to second- or third-power status. From 2009 to 2015, in one of the most...

    On Saturday, Rep. Devin Nunes spoke at CPAC 2018 about his work as the head of the House Intelligence Committee, which has been investigating allegations of serious abuses of power by the Obama administration in surveilling the Trump presidential campaign back in 2016. Nunes spent a significant amount of time taking the mainstream media to task for its slanted coverage of he and his Republican colleagues’ efforts to bring their findings about FBI and DOJ abuses to the public. “What’s you’ve really seen is the collapse of the media,” Nunes argued. “Most Americans are understanding that no matter where you’re...
