    October 28 marks the anniversary of the Battle of the Milvian Bridge (AD 312) at which Constantine the Great defeated the usurper Maxentius who had set himself up as emperor in Rome. Son of the emperor Maximian Herculius, Maxentius claimed the same right to the throne that Constantine had claimed from his own father, the emperor Constantius I Chlorus. The difference was that Constantius conferred the imperial power upon his son Constantine on his deathbed, whereas Maxentius took his father's authority by force and drove the old man from Rome. After several failed attempts of the eastern emperors to end...

    A federal judge in Washington, D.C., on Monday pressed Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyers on why the public shouldn’t be allowed to see redacted portions of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, suggesting that he may be willing to consider releasing at least some of the restricted document. Judge Reggie Walton, an appointee of former President George W. Bush, posed the questions during a hearing on a pair of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits seeking the redacted portions of the report. The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) and BuzzFeed News reporter Jason Leopold filed the lawsuits earlier this year....

    Lawyers for 16-year-old Nicholas Sandmann, the Covington Catholic High School junior who faced off with Omaha Nation elder Nathan Phillips on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial last month, have filed a $250 million lawsuit against The Washington Post, one of many newspapers to report on viral video of the incident. “This is only the beginning,” said the attorneys, Lin Wood and Todd McMurtry, on their firm’s website, noting that it was the “first lawsuit” on Sandmann’s behalf. The suit was filed in U.S. District Court in Kentucky, Reuters reported, and it states that the sum – which is for...

    VOSTOCHNY LAUNCH PAD, Russia (AP) -- A Russian weather satellite and nearly 20 micro-satellites from various nations failed to enter their designated orbits Tuesday following the launch from Russia's new cosmodrome, another blow to the nation's space program. Russia's Roscosmos space agency said it has failed to establish communications with the Meteor M 2-1 satellite that was launched atop a Soyuz-2 booster rocket Tuesday from Russia's new Vostochny launch pad in the Far East. The agency says it's trying to determine what happened.

    A federal judge on Friday said that the court could not compel the IRS to turn over President Trump’s tax returns. The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) launched a suit against the IRS earlier this year after the agency refused to hand over the documents as part of an open-records request. Through the Freedom of Information Act, EPIC had sought Trump’s personal tax returns from 2010 to the present day and any documents that may reveal financial relationships with the Russian government or Russian businesses. However, personal tax forms are confidential. They can only be obtained if Trump himself gave...

    This is just a taste of what lies at the linked site, Cold Fury. The language is at times too strong for this site, but boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen, he's expressing precisely what I think about so-called "progressives and their ilk. Here's a sample:Progressivism has no new ideas at all, and their tired, old ones are so self-contradictory as to be completely incoherent by now. They. Have. Nothing. They’re intensely, smugly dismissive of all religion—except the most primitive, ass-backwards, hateful one in all human history, which absolutely no one is allowed to criticize in even the smallest way....

    By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON, July 24 (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Monday rejected a bid to prevent President Donald Trump's commission on alleged election fraud from requesting voter roll data from states. Washington-based U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly ruled in favor of the administration by refusing to block the commission from asking for the data. The decision was a loss for the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), a watchdog group, which filed a lawsuit challenging the commission's actions.

I really feel that he ignores me. Which I guess I think is very understandable. I just think if we would be be together, and by that I mean have s*x, we would be closer. And happier. I probably should not have posted this no because I'm tired and it's late and I don't know how much I can answer everybody. But I would...

THE PRESIDENT: …doing what I pledge to do. That’s all I’m doing. I put it out before the American people, got 306 Electoral College votes. I wasn’t supposed to get 222. They said, “There’s no way to get 222; 230 is impossible,” 270, which you need? That was laughable. We got 306. Because people came out and voted like they’d never seen before, so that’s the way...
