    April 17, 2012. Barcelona, Spain. Many Americans are shocked to find out that a foreign corporation from Spain is contracted to produce, manage and tabulate US elections. The company also recently purchased a US tech start-up to acquire an even larger presence in America. With that acquisition three months ago came the privilege and responsibility of facilitating American elections in 900 municipalities and 26 states. Electronic voting is here, and it’s not American. Check the included list to see if your state is one of them. Cities and states that currently use Spain-based Scytl's SOE Software for electronic voting. Image...

  • 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 that have been obtained by Fox News refer to then-candidate Donald Trump as a "loathsome human" and "an idiot." 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. The messages obtained by Fox News were sent during the 2016 campaign and contain multiple discussions about various candidates. On March 2, Strzok texted Page that someone "asked me who I’d vote...

    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...

    Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe is set to appear before the House Intelligence Committee later this month after his previously scheduled appearance was scrapped due to what Justice Department officials called a last-minute "scheduling error." Committee chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told reporters that he was "extremely troubled" by the postponement of McCabe's testimony and called the Justice Department's "scheduling error" excuse "not really believable." Insight from Robert Driscoll, former Justice Department official who served as deputy assistant attorney general under President George W. Bush. Video Special counsel needed to probe DOJ-Fusion GPS?

    The co-founder of Trump dossier firm Fusion GPS confirmed in court filings on Tuesday that he met last year with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and hired Ohr’s wife to help with the opposition research firm’s investigation of Donald Trump. Glenn Simpson said in a declaration filed in federal court in Washington, D.C. that he met “at [Ohr’s] request” weeks after the presidential election. Simpson stated that Ohr, who recently held the position of deputy assistant attorney general, sought the meeting “to discuss our findings regarding Russia and the election.” Simpson also disclosed that Fusion GPS hired Ohr’s wife, Nellie,...

    Tillerson told a D.C. crowd Tuesday: “We’re ready to have the first meeting without precondition." "Let's just meet," he continued. "We can talk about the weather if you want. We can talk about whether it's going to be a square table or a round table, if that's what you're excited about. But can we at least sit down and see each other face-to-face. And then we can begin to lay out a map, a roadmap, of what we might be willing to work towards."

    It’s over. The Alabama special election is over. The polls have closed. The only thing that Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones can do now is wait. Moore has been dealing with multiple accusations of sexual molestation and assault from multiple women. These events occurred when Moore’s accusers were teenagers. It’s been an issue that has plagued the Moore campaign. As the ballots are being counted, turnout in some areas of the state is higher than usual. Yet, CNN’s panel of pundits noted that high black turnout, which is what Democrats are hoping for, might not be enough to...

    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...

    RUSH: Do you remember back when the Weinstein story broke in the New York Times we were all saying, “Why? Why now? Just ’cause Hillary lost? But what brought this about?” People said, “He’s lost his power in D.C., and he’s been hated for so long, and now people finally have a chance, and Ronan Farrow was…” Maybe we were all wrong. Maybe the reason it was time for Weinstein to finally be outed was because it triggered all of this. Let’s go to the audio sound bites. Capitol Hill this afternoon, 69 members of Congress.
