  • Brennan's claim that he only heard about the 'Russia dossier' in the news doesn't wash

    Actual headline: Brennan caught in another LIE? Claim he heard about Russia ‘dossier’ via ‘news reports’ doesn’t WASH Deep State: On Monday, disgraced Obama CIA Director John Brennan, who recently had his security clearance revoked by POTUS Donald Trump, said he never heard anything about the infamous “Russia dossier” until he saw it in news reports. That’s the same excuse his boss, Obama, used to give when he claimed to have no additional knowledge about the plethora of scandals that occurred on his watch. But is Brennan’s claim true? Doesn’t seem like it.

    Prison inmates across the country are preparing to go on strike by refusing to eat or work, as a way to protest what they call 'prison slavery' and poor conditions. Though the extent of the planned strike is not known, prisoners in at least 17 states say they will be taking part in coordinated action, which will begin on Tuesday and last through September 9. Organizers say the strike is partly in response to the April riot in South Carolina's Lee Correctional Institution, where seven inmates were killed by other prisoners when gang tensions boiled over. The masterminds of the...

    **SNIP** Paronto said he never shared intel but his security clearance was removed by Brennan. Brennan never told him why. He blasted Brennan for the way the heroes of Benghazi were treated upon return. “We come back from being on the ground to be treated as a second-class citizen. You come back and you’re called a liar,” Paronto told Fox News. “Brennan came in and there was no talk of ‘hey, good job guys,’ not that you look for it, but instead, it was ‘don’t say anything guys, we don’t want the truth to get out.’” He didn’t let up...

    Brennan claimed not to know “who commissioned” the dossier, not to know whether the FBI “ever relied” on it as part of “any court filing,” and even claimed the dossier “wasn’t part of the corpus of intelligence information that we had.”The problem for Brennan is this: if he had no knowledge of the dossier, what was he telling Senator Reid, and others on the hill, when he was apparently relaying details from the dossier?

    For self defense, the Ruger LCP makes an excellent pistol that is very easy to conceal. Its compact size makes it comfortable enough to hide under a waistband or at an ankle or easy enough to stow away in a glove compartment or purse. However, many needs for self defense arise during the night, so having a good laser installed can make the difference between life or death. We’ve compiled this review of the best Ruger LCP lasers we could find on the market, and we’ll let you know what our top choice is for most gunowners. Surprisingly, there is...

Both were wearing black bullet-proof vests. The picture was posted Saturday and has been shared more than 20,000 times on Facebook, including by mayoral candidate Ja’Mal Green. Green, who has been active in the Black Lives Matter movement, blamed the sleeping situation on mandatory overtime ordered by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

With pride he clutched his U.S. flag as he moved among the crowd of like-thinking demonstrators. Soon a group of black-clad anti-fascist protesters, also known as antifa, demanded he lose the flag, calling it a fascist symbol. Welch refused, and a tug-of-war ensued. It ended with Welch taking a club to the back of the head, lying on the ground in a pool of his own blood. Only Welch was not a Proud Boy, a Patriot Prayer supporter...

    Former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director John Brennan told NBC News’ Chuck Todd on Sunday’s Meet the Press that he learned since retiring that Russians began hacking Hillary Clinton’s emails on the day Donald Trump joked about it in July 2016. The problem: that widely-cited claim is untrue — a piece of “fake news” evidence, drawn from one of the indictments by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, that has fueled unfounded theories that Trump colluded with the Russians during the presidential election. Last week, Brennan wrote an op-ed in the New York Times in which he confirmed Trump’s joke at a...

    President Donald Trump went off on a tirade earlier this month against AWOL Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Trump tweeted out to Sessions to end the corrupt Mueller witch hunt. Sessions continues to serve as Attorney General in name only as corrupt Rod Rosenstein runs a perverted witch hunt to take down President Trump. Sessions should have stepped down a year ago. He knows he lost the trust of Donald Trump and the American people.
