  • The FBI didn’t use an informant to go after Trump. They used one to protect him. [WasPo garbage]

    05/18/2018 10:27:06 PM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 96 replies
    But Trump and his backers are wrong about what it means that the FBI reportedly was using a confidential source to gather information early in its investigation of possible campaign ties to Russia. The investigation started out as a counterintelligence probe, not a criminal one. And relying on a covert source rather than a more intrusive method of gathering information suggests that the FBI may have been acting cautiously — perhaps too cautiously — to protect the campaign, not undermine it. As a former FBI counterintelligence agent, I know what Trump apparently does not: Counterintelligence investigations have a different purpose...
  • Roseanne Rebuffs ABC Bosses and Promises a ‘Braver,’ More Politically ‘Timely’ Show than Ever

    Actress Roseanne Barr rebuffed her bosses at ABC Entertainment on Tuesday during the fall upfront presentations, promising that the next season of her hit sitcom Roseanne will be “even braver” and politically ‘timely’ than the last. “Don’t worry, #Roseanne show fans-next season will be even braver/funnier/timely than this season, despite what anyone mistakenly says.” Barr’s comments come after ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey claimed the show’s next season would be “less political.” “I think that they’re going to stay on the path that they were on towards the end of last season, which is away from politics and towards family,”...
  • Mueller told Trump's legal team he will not indict the president, Giuliani tells Fox News

    President Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told Fox News Wednesday that special counsel Robert Mueller has told the president's legal team he will follow Justice Department guidance and not seek an indictment against Trump. Giuliani, himself a former federal prosecutor and mayor of New York City, also told Fox that Mueller's investigators have not responded to five information requests from the president's team. That has forced Trump's legal team to push off making a decision about whether the president will sit for an interview with the special counsel -- a decision they had hoped to reach by Thursday. The precedent that...
  • The Haspel Obstacle: Enhanced Interrogations Are Not 'Torture'

    05/11/2018 9:49:58 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 10 replies ^ | March 11, 2018 | Mark Davis
    Many debates over politics and policy begin with a battle over language. Before all sides can hash out their differences, there must be an understanding of what their words mean. From the months following 9/11 right up to the current CIA confirmation hearings for Gina Haspel, the misuse of a vital term has hindered clarity and progress on a key issue. On the first day of her answers before the Senate Intelligence Committee, the word even impeded what should be a clear path to the title she seeks. The word, of course, is “torture.” Since our nation began undertaking special...
  • Crazy stuff liberals are saying about Schneiderman. Denial and paranoia.

    The following are all real comments made on various social media or comment sections last night regarding New York Attorney a General article Schneiderman. So much denial and delusion, I had to laugh. -- This is exactly what worries me......I'm wondering if Trump is behind this. He and his mob are getting him out of the way. I don't trust Trump and the Russians. This could very well have been a hit job. . Sounds like Schneiderman is into rough sex. Trump probably sent the same goons (Israeli mafia aka Black Cube) after him that he sent after those 2...

    Veteran NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw mounted a scorching denial of allegations that he made unwanted advances on a young colleague in the 1990s, claiming in an email to several NBC News employees that he had been "ambushed" by a public smear campaign."I was ambushed and then perp walked across the pages of The Washington Post and Variety as an avatar of male misogyny, taken to the guillotine and stripped of any honor and achievement I had earned in more than a half century of journalism and citizenship," Brokaw wrote in the email, a copy of which was obtained by...

    Update: Austin-based Yeti says claims made by the National Rifle Association over the weekend are “inaccurate” and that the company is “unwavering in our belief in and commitment to the Constitution of the United States and its Second Amendment.” In an email to its members, the NRA claimed Yeti “suddenly, without prior notice” indicated it no longer wished to do business with the NRA Foundation. Not so, says Yeti. The maker of coolers and thermal mugs says the NRA has twisted its words. “A few weeks ago, Yeti notified the NRA Foundation, as well as a number of other organizations,...

    Deutsche Welle ^ | 04.15.2018 | Elizabeth Schumacher (with DPA)
    A poll published on Sunday by Germany’s biggest tabloid, Bild, found that just a little over half of Germans believe there are neighborhoods in the country so dangerous that even police fear to tread there. About 51 percent of participants said that they believed lawless “no-go” zones existed, whereas 41 percent said there were no such areas in Germany. About 77 percent said they wished police would crack down harder on crime syndicates. The somewhat dubious concept of lawless areas in Germany has been promoted in no small part by disproportionate reporting of crimes committed by migrants and foreigners in...

    Michael Cohen, president Trump’s personal lawyer, again on Saturday denied that he ever traveled to Prague during the 2016 election, as alleged in ex-British spy Christopher Steele’s dossier funded by the Democratic Party.Mr. Cohen tweeted in response to a McClatchy News story that said specialcounsel Robert Mueller has evidence that he traveled to Prague in August 2016. The dossier said he went there to meet with Vladimir Putin aides to supposedly discuss covering up Russian-Trump hacking into Democratic Party computers. Mr. Cohen has testified repeatedly under oath, and thus under the penalty of perjury, that he never made such a...

    The Vatican has denied that Pope Francis told a well-known Italian journalist that "there is no hell".The quote came in an article in Italy's La Repubblica daily. But the Vatican said "no quotations" in the article "should be considered as a faithful transcription" of the Pope's words.The Vatican said the article was based on a private meeting the Pope had with the daily's founder, Eugenio Scalfari. Catholic Church doctrine affirms the existence of hell and its eternity.The souls of sinners descend into hell, where they suffer "eternal fire", the Catholic catechism states.However, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, the most senior Catholic in...

    Leaders of the “March for Our Lives” anti-gun protest movement scrambled Tuesday to distance themselves from an op-ed in the New York Times by former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens calling for the Second Amendment to be repealed. In the op-ed, Stevens wrote that in the wake of last weekend’s nationwide protests, ” the demonstrators should seek more effective and more lasting reform. They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment.”

    Bill Hybels, founder and senior pastor of the multi-campus Willow Creek Community Church, has denied multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, including a consensual affair with a married woman, who retracted her claims. Investigations commissioned by the church also could not substantiate the allegations. In an extensive investigation of the allegations published by the Chicago Tribune on Thursday night, former members of the church, including those who resigned from high-level leadership positions, argue that the church's investigations have been deficient. The Tribune report also alleges a pattern of behavior against Hybels that includes suggestive comments, extended hugs, an unwanted kiss, and...

    Is it possible that mainstream politicians and the mainstream media are finally recognising what the European public can see with their own eyes? Two recent occurrences suggest that this might be so. The first is a concession by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who almost half a year after her party's embarrassment in national elections has finally managed to put together a coalition government. Last September saw not only Merkel's party and her erstwhile coalition partners suffer a historic dent in their vote-share, but also saw the entry to Parliament of the five-year old anti-immigration AfD (Alternative for Germany) party, which...

    Senator Elizabeth Warren told CNN: "I am not running for president in 2020." In perhaps related news, Warren has declined to take a DNA test to establish once and for all how much -- if any -- Native American blood she has in her. Acosta also asked if she gets upset when President Donald Trump refers to her as "Pocahontas." "It's about my family's story. Because my family's story is deeply a part of me and a part of my brothers," Warren said. "It's what we learned from our parents. It's what we learned from our grandparents. It's what we...

    CNBC "News" ^ | February 14, 2018 | by Associated Press
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren says President Donald Trump disrespects Native Americans by referring to her as "Pocahontas," and she says that while she's not enrolled in any tribe, "I never used my family tree to get a break or ... advance my career." Warren says her parents married in Oklahoma in 1932, and that "the story they lived will always be a part of me. And no one — not even the president of the United States — will ever take that part of me away." Trump frequently refers to Warren as "Pocahontas" to mock the Democrat's claims about being part...

That I boycotted the speech or protested by leaving during an applause break is just someone’s spin," Gutierrez wrote on Twitter. "I was due on TV for an interview and the speech was running late. I waited until the President stopped talking and walked to the back and watched the last 90-seconds...
