    Pvt. Chelsea Manning, the transgender soldier convicted of giving classified government materials to WikiLeaks, was released from a Kansas military prison early Wednesday after serving seven years of her 35-year sentence. The leak, which Manning said she provided "to show the true cost of war", is considered to be the largest of its kind in USA history. "Manning is statutorily entitled to medical care while on excess leave in an active duty status, pending final appellate review", said Foster, the Army spokesman. "I am looking forward to so much!" said a statement released by Manning through her legal team, the...
  • NARRATIVE DESTROYED: ‘WHITE SUPREMACIST’ PORTLAND STABBING SUSPECT IS A BERNIE BRO

    Following news that a white supremacist has been accused of stabbing and killing several men who attempted to stop him from harassing Muslim women on a train, many have called for President Donald Trump to do something about the violence, with the implication being that the suspect is obviously one of his supporters. *** The Council on American-Islamic Relations also joined in on the fun, demanding that Trump denounce “rising bigotry” against Muslims. “President Trump must speak out personally against the rising tide of Islamophobia and other forms of bigotry and racism in our nation that he has provoked through...

    Manuel Antonio Noriega, the brash former dictator of Panama and sometime ally of the United States whose ties to drug trafficking led to his ouster in 1989 in what was then the largest American military action since the Vietnam War, has died. He was 83. President Juan Carlos Varela of Panama announced Mr. Noriega’s death on Twitter early Tuesday morning.

    Watchdog outlines reasons for seeking information about DNC staffer's murder! The chief of Judicial Watch has posted a video explaining that there’s “credible evidence” that suggests questions need to be answered about the murder last summer of Democratic National Committee member Seth Rich. His death has been much in the news in recent weeks after there initially were reports, from unnamed sources, that linked him to the DNC emails that were delivered to WikiLeaks and posted online just as Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign was facing a surprisingly strong challenge from New York businessman Donald Trump. Whether it was because...

  • Trump’s War With CIA Was Preceded By Kennedy’s

    Fairfield Sun Times ^ | March 28 2017 | Frank Miele
    The New York Times, in a front-page story, said that the president “wanted to splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.” Whether that quote is accurate or not we don’t know, but it makes sense that after the agency damaged the president’s reputation so badly, he would react with such anger. If you are a student of history, you already know that the president who swore a vendetta against the Central Intelligence Agency wasn’t Donald Trump, but John F. Kennedy, and that although he did not abolish the agency before his assassination, he did...

    Weekly Standard ^ | 05/25/2017 | Alice B. Lloyd
    Ten months after his death, reports continue to circulate concerning the murder of Seth Rich, a 27-year-old data analyst for the Democratic National Committee. Seth Conrad Rich died hours after what police investigators (who are still working on the case) have long said was likely an attempted robbery. Online conspiracy theorists and cable news commentators, on the other hand, claim that Rich was a WikiLeaks informant and insinuate that he was killed for political reasons. These theories began with insinuations from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who offered a $20,000 reward for information about Rich's murder last August and suggested that...

    Telegraph (U.K.) ^ | 24 MAY 2017 | Jonathan Pearlman
    An editor of a conservative magazine in Australia has been widely condemned for a “revolting" claim that the Manchester bombing should have happened at the headquarters of the ABC, Australia's public broadcaster. In comments that have caused a storm on social media and have been referred to the police, Roger Franklin, the online editor of Quadrant, lamented on the magazine’s website that the victims of the bombing were not panelists who had downplayed the threat of terrorism on Monday night’s Q&A programme, which aired before the Manchester attack. If there had been a shred of justice that blast would have...

    A shoving match and war of words nearly turned into a fistfight on the Texas House floor Monday, the final day of a bitterly contentious 140-day legislative session. "This session has been very, very difficult," said Rep. Celia Israel, D-Austin. "There are enough of us here who remember a time in Texas when respect and decorum ruled the day." Those rules flew out the House door when a group of protesters crashed the chamber's gallery Monday, chanting opposition to the so-called sanctuary cities ban. Legislators approved a bill this year that would force local governments to enforce federal immigration laws,...

    Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler has urged the federal government to revoke a permit for a “free speech” rally and to refuse a permit for an anti-Muslim march planned for Portland next week. Wheeler made the request in light of a gruesome stabbing on a MAX light-rail train Friday, May 26. Two men died and another was seriously injured when they intervened to defend two teenage girls from a man’s bigoted tirade. In a series of posts on Twitter, Wheeler said the events should be canceled.

Cops in Portland say that Christian, 35, slit the throats of two good Samaritans who were trying to stop him from abusing two Muslim women.

According to online records, Christian, 35, is being held without bail at the Multnomah County Detention Center. He's facing charges of aggravated murder and attempted murder. The abuse and attack happened on...
