  • 'God, Trump is a loathsome human': FBI officials involved with Russia probe (tr)

    Daily Mail ^ | Dec 13, 2017 | HANNAH PARRY
    Two high ranking FBI officials involved in Robert Mueller's Russian probe exchanged text messages calling Donald Trump 'an idiot'. FBI agent Peter Strzok and senior FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who were having an affair, shared more than 10,000 texts in 2016 discussing the future president. During their exchanges, they described Trump as an 'idiot' and a 'loathsome human' and shared their hopes that Hillary Clinton should win the election, the Washington Post reported. Special Counsel Mueller removed Strzok from the investigation into collusion between Trump's administration and Russia during the 2016 election, after the messages revealing anti-Trump sentiment first emerged...
  • Becerra Tried To Block Server Admin Over Red Flags, But Logins Continued, With Muted Reaction

    Xavier Becerra, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, barely reacted when he learned the caucus server had been infiltrated in 2016, although he loudly decried the hack of the Democratic National Committee that happened around that same time. No one has faced punishment for the caucus server infiltration. The then-congressman, who is now California’s attorney general, refused to articulate even the barest details of the cyber breach at a press conference Wednesday, and would not say whether he’s seeking criminal charges against longtime IT aide Imran Awan and his family. Members of the Awan family logged on to the...

    A top Republican senator is expanding an investigation into the Uranium One deal, demanding documents from the Energy Department and Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) on the Uranium One deal. Wyoming GOP Sen. John Barrasso wants to know whether or not former President Barack Obama’s administration intentionally misled him about Uranium One being able to export its product out of the U.S. after it was acquired by Russia.

    Townhall.com ^ | Dec 13, 2017 | Congressman Diane Black
    America is having a reckoning and it’s long overdue. I’m talking about the movement to hold sexual harassers accountable for their actions. This important movement is now shaking the halls of power in Congress and state capitols and I am determined to help lead it. I remember my first year in the Tennessee House of Representatives. It was 1998, and having spent my career as a nurse and an educator, I had a lot to learn about the legislative process. I immediately figured out that the state House had a “good ol' boy” culture - and learned about the inappropriate...
  • A Transparent Lack of Media Curiosity – Why Was Judge Rudolph Contreras Recused From Flynn Case?…

    Last Thursday it was announced that U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras was mysteriously recused from the Special Counsel case against General Mike Flynn, five days after Judge Contreras accepting the initial pleading. No explanation as to ‘why’? (Reuters) The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia judge presiding over the criminal case for President Donald Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has been recused from handling the case, a court spokeswoman said on Thursday.

  • Still Dawdling Over Deadly Diversity Visas

    Capitol Hill's national security priorities are screwier than a Six Flags roller coaster. Instead of immediately shutting down one of America's stupidest visa programs, which helped bring us yet another murder-minded jihadist this week, bipartisan Beltway politicians are pushing to preserve and expand the illegal immigration pipeline. Republicans and Democrats in Congress want a "fix" for the Obama administration's executive amnesty covering nearly 700,000 illegal immigrants -- and they want it pronto. Translation: Protecting border-hopping "DREAMers" is a more important priority in Washington than protecting Americans from infiltrators exploiting the diversity visa lottery. You remember the hew and cry over...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said he was the victim of a fake news hit on Tuesday, and has turned over to Capitol Police a document that purports to detail lurid sexual harassment accusations by a former staffer. Why it matters: This was an apparent effort to dupe reporters and smear a senator — both symptoms of an amped-up news environment where harassment charges are proliferating and reporters have become targets for fraud. The former staffer told me in a phone interview that she did not author the document, that none of the charges ring true, and that her...

    A federal judge in Washington, D.C. has recused herself from a second case involving Trump dossier firm Fusion GPS. Tanya S. Chutkan, an Obama appointee, recused herself on Monday from a case involving a dispute over subpoenas issued for Fusion GPS, the firm that commissioned the dossier. Aleksej Gubarev, a Russian tech executive accused in the dossier of hacking Democrats’ computer systems, has sought to subpoena Fusion GPS records and to depose its employees to find out more about the research firm’s work on the dossier. Gubarev is suing BuzzFeed for defamation for publishing the dossier earlier this year. He...

    Breitbart ^ | 12/12/2017 | KRISTINA WONG
    The top Democrat on the House intelligence committee and a lead proponent of the Russian collusion narrative downplayed expectations there will be any smoking gun evidence showing collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, after months have passed and millions spent in investigations. Back in March, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-WA), in defending the need for investigations, told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that there was “circumstantial evidence” of collusion, and that the American people had a right to know whether the circumstantial evidence of collusion is “indicative of more.” But on Sunday, Schiff backed away from the need for any actual...

    Alabama is allowed to destroy digital voting records created at the polls during today's U.S. Senate election after all. At 1:36 p.m. Monday, a Montgomery County Circuit Court judge issued an order directing Alabama election officials to preserve all digital ballot images created at polling places across the state today. But at 4:32 p.m. Monday, attorneys for Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill and Ed Packard, the state administrator of elections, filed an "emergency motion to stay" that order, which the state Supreme Court granted minutes after Merrill and Packard's motion was filed. By granting the stay, the court effectively...

    I will tell you now. If Roy Moore loses this election we can blame conservative who fell for the lies of the Wash Post and Trump for not coming out sooner, or for campaigning in Alabama. T told everyone what to expect, yet no one paid attention. On October 10 I posted this, I'm Sending Money To Support Roy Moore For The US Senate, How About You?. I warned you then what to expect, and many ignored my warning. Ar the time, little did I know how they would try to bring Moore down, yet I told you that the...

    Texts between ex-Mueller team members emerge, calling Trump 'loathsome human,' 'an idiot' Text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page in 2016 referred to then-candidate Donald Trump as a "loathsome human" and "an idiot," Fox News can reveal. More than 10,000 texts between Strzok and Page were being reviewed by the Justice Department after Strzok was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe after it was revealed that some of them contained anti-Trump content.

    Irish Central ^ | December 10, 2017 09:08 PM | Paul Farrell
    U.S. immigration and customs agents have increased arrests of undocumented Irish people by 30 percent in 2017. That’s according to statistics released by ICE in December. This comes after Donald Trump signed an executive order just days after his inauguration ordering an ICE crackdown on illegal immigration. Those figures indicate that 34 Irish citizens have been deported from America this year as compared with 26 in 2016. The Irish Times reports that the majority of Irish who have overstayed their visas were on vacation waivers. The executive director of the Irish International Immigrant Center in Boston, Ronnie Millar, told the...
  • Sierra LaMar Murder: Antolin Garcia-Torres Sentenced to Life in Prison Without Parole

    12/12/2017 4:19:39 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 6 replies
    Antolin Garcia Torres, the convicted killer of Morgan Hill teenager Sierra LaMar, was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Garcia-Torres, 26, was convicted in May of first-degree murder in the 15-year-old girl's death and the attempted kidnappings of three women in 2009. On Tuesday, he was also ordered to register as a sex offender. The sentencing, which was originally scheduled to take place in September, was delayed as the court considered a challenge from the defense to remove Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Vanessa Zecher from the case. Garcia-Torres and his attorneys claimed that...
  • Tougher restrictions imposed on former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert

    A judge on Tuesday ordered supervised release conditions tightened for former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert, including barring him from possessing pornography, using sex chat lines or having any contact with minors except in the presence of an adult who is aware of his conviction related to the sexual abuse of boys decades ago. The order from U.S. District Judge Thomas Durkin appeared to be based on a report submitted under seal by the probation department a day earlier. The docket in Hastert’s case was updated Tuesday with a lengthy order from the judge issuing a host of new restrictions...

    The Central Intelligence Agency knows the identities of the people who leaked DNC emails to the whistleblower organization WikiLeaks during the heat of the 2016 presidential campaign, a former CIA officer contends. Fred Rustmann, who served as an operations officer in the CIA’s National Clandestine Service for 24 years and was a member of the agency’s elite Senior Intelligence Service, said in an interview with WND that WikiLeaks’ ongoing release of classified information is “disgusting.” But he said it’s likely the CIA knows who the leakers are.

    Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe on Monday night reportedly postponed an appearance before the House Intelligence Committee that was scheduled for Tuesday. The abrupt cancellation occurred following a report by Fox News that raised new questions about connections between the Justice Department and Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm behind the infamous Trump dossier. Fox News reported that McCabe’s interview will be rescheduled for next week. The Justice Department told the network that the cancellation was due to a “routine scheduling error.” A Congressional source told The Daily Caller that the excuse is “very hard to believe.”

    A new 13-minute mini-documentary produced by NBC makes a strong case in favor of issuing illegal aliens ID cards with little to no regard for U.S. law or the safety of legal citizens, proving once again that gone are the days of unbiased reporting. The slick production features several “undocumented immigrants” living in New York City who have benefited from IDNYC, a program created in 2014 to give a city identification card for undocumented immigrants, homeless, or any new Yorker without a proper ID. One said living without an ID meant they couldn’t “pursue happiness.” The other, a self-described “gay...

    Shortened title. Full title: Fusion GPS dossier cabal was using spy tradecraft to evade leaving electronic footprints for NSA surveillance I suspect that we are in the process of uncovering the worst political scandal in American history, in which the most fearsome tool of federal government spying was turned against the Trump campaign.  A cabal manipulated events behind the scenes to subvert the legal safeguards that are supposed to prevent such an abuse.
