  • Debrief on Trump-Putin Presser – There are High Crimes to Be Hidden, and Trillions Still at Stake

    Conservative Treehouse ^ | July 16, 2018 | Sundance
    Last Friday, in a carefully timed construct, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein delivered a purely political statement to the media under the auspices of indictments against 13 Russians. Make no mistake, the entire construct of Mueller’s team project; and the enabling of Rod Rosenstein; was intended to do what it has been doing for over a year, diminish, disrupt and eventually stop President Trump. President Trump remains an existential threat to the business interests within the apparatus of professional politics. Additionally, candidate Trump defeated the professional political class despite the stunningly Machiavellian surveillance schemes of the deep administrative state which...
  • One of the Most Disgraceful Performances by a President I've Ever Seen: Cooper Eviscerates Trump

    Anderson Cooper made it very clear how he felt about president Donald Trump's performance during his joint press conference with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. 'You have been watching perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit in front of a Russian leader certainly that I've ever seen,' began Cooper in his remarks once the press conference had ended on Monday. Cooper said this in a calm and even voice, delivering it as fact and not an opinion.
  • Trump Is Right: Mueller’s Latest Indictment Suggests He’s Conducting A Witch Hunt

    The Federalist ^ | July 16, 2018 | Margot Cleveland
    On Friday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller returned a multi-count indictment charging 12 Russians and the Russian military agency, GRU, with crimes related to hacking into the Democratic National Committee’s computers and seeking to use the information to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election. When the news broke, pundits quickly used Mueller’s latest charges to chastise Trump for claiming the special counsel investigation is a “witch hunt.” The New York Times claimed “[t]he 37-page indictment — handed up by a federal grand jury in Washington — amounted to a detailed rebuttal of Mr. Trump, who has sowed doubts that Russia interfered...

    At the summit meeting with US President Donald Trump in Helsinki on Monday, Putin said that the United States might file a request to question the Russians indicted in the US, under the 1999 Treaty on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters, and Russian investigators could interrogate them. "Then we will expect from the American side to question, in presence of our detectives, those officials, including US special services agents, who we suspect of committing illegal activities in the Russian Federation," he emphasized. "What do I mean? The notorious case of Bill Browder, the founder of the Hermitage Capital Management."
  • British caver in Thai rescue considers legal action after Elon Musk calls him a ‘pedo’

    A British caver who helped rescue 12 boys from a Thailand cave said on Monday he may take legal action against Tesla CEO Elon Musk after the entrepreneur called him a “pedo” on Twitter. Musk has come under fire for launching the extraordinary attack on Vernon Unsworth without providing any justification or explanation, after the cave expert slammed his offer of a miniature submarine to extract the footballers from the Tham Luang cave as a “PR stunt”. The boys and their football coach were rescued from the cave complex by an international team and after a week of intense drama....

    Unless I'm missing it, I'm surprised there is no thread for the Trump meeting with Putin. The media (and even some of Trump allies) are going ballistic. Trump said that both sides have contributed to the atmosphere, and while he brought up the meddling, he seemed to be open to Putin's denial and suggestion to allow Mueller to question his people in exchange for them being allowed to question Bill Browder & others. Trump questioned the intelligence agencies with regard to the Clinton investigation, for not getting the server of the DNC, and the bias of people like Strozk. He...
  • Mueller’s Politicized Indictment of Twelve Russian Intelligence Officers

    National Review ^ | 16 July 2018 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    So, is Russia now presumed innocent of hacking the 2016 election? If not, it is difficult to understand any proper purpose served by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of twelve military officers in the Kremlin’s intelligence services... Make no mistake: This is nakedly politicized law enforcement. There is absolutely no chance any of the Russian officials charged will ever see the inside of an American courtroom. The indictment is a strictly political document by which the special counsel seeks to justify the existence of his superfluous investigation. snip Lacking the requisite basis to conduct a criminal investigation, the Justice Department...

    PUTIN (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Thank you so much. Shall we start working? I guess. Distinguished Mr. President, ladies and gentlemen, negotiations with the president of the United States, Donald Trump, took place in a frank and business-like atmosphere. I think we can call it a success and a very fruitful round of negotiations. We carefully analyzed the current status, the present and the future of the Russia-United States relationship, key issues of the global agenda...

    Did climate change already kill all the aliens we've been searching for? According to astrophysicist Adam Frank, it's certainly a possibility — and whether humans are doomed to the same fate may already be out of our hands. Frank, a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Rochester in New York, is the lead author of a new paper published May 1 in the journal Astrobiology that aims to take what Frank calls a "10,000-light-year" view of anthropogenic (human-caused) climate change. Using mathematical models based on the disappearance of a real-life lost civilization here on Earth (the former...

    Republican lawmakers praised former FBI lawyer Lisa Page following a closed-door session Friday, saying she was "cooperative" and "credible" and much more forthcoming than FBI agent Peter Strzok (her former paramour). According to select committee members, Page provided new information and was less "smug" than Strzok. Republicans were not impressed with Strzok's testimony on Thursday, to put it mildly. "He was not honest. He was not credible in explaining his actions, and yet he's still on the payroll of the FBI," Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said on "Fox and Friends" Saturday morning. "Why is he still getting a paycheck from...

    The Obama Administration's CIA director, John Brennan, charged that President Trump's post-summit press conference with Russia President Vladimir Putin was an act of treason. "Donald Trump's press performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of 'high crimes and misdemeanors,'" Brennan tweeted. "It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump's comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???" Moments after tweeting, Brennan appeared on MSNBC and demanded Trump cabinet officials resign in protest.
  • Trump and the queen: The Press ridicules Trump for "Lack of Etiquette"

    American Thinker ^ | 07/16/2018 | Russ McSwain
    It remains interesting that much of the ridicule aimed at Trump involves things that liberals do as well. Case in point from the Huffington Post: The royal family adheres to a strict code of etiquette and behavior. So when the ever-boisterous President Donald Trump met with Queen Elizabeth II for tea at Windsor Castle on Friday, many expected him to serve up some awkward interactions. Of course, Trump did not disappoint. My goodness – Trump was rude to the queen?  Our leaders should respect the customs and protocols of other nations just as we expect them to respect ours.  What on earth...

    t’s something people tell me all the time, and usually in hushed tones: “With a trillion planets out there, we really can’t be the only intelligent beings in the galaxy.” In other words, given the enormous amount of real estate in space, aliens are sure to exist. So why haven’t we found any? I don’t dispute this straightforward idea because, after all, it underpins the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI). But not everyone agrees. A recent paper by three researchers at the University of Oxford is throwing shade on those who feel confident that the cosmos is thick with extraterrestrials....

    What if the bluest state in the country stole a third of a billion dollars from victims of chicanery and the media refused to notice?    I have been stunned at the lack of media coverage of California’s foiled robbery of almost a third of a billion dollars. That’s right: under Governor Jerry Brown, the Great State of California helped itself to hundreds of millions of dollars – money that was supposed to go to home owners, and you probably didn’t hear about it. Bib Egelko of the San Francisco Chronicle was one of the few to cover this...
  • Mossad raid in Iran nets thousands of documents on nuclear program

    American Thinker ^ | 07/16/2018 | Rick Moran
    Sometime last January, several agents belonging to Israel's intelligence service Mossad, approached a non-descript warehouse in Tehran. After disabling a few alarms and bypassing other security measures, the agents entered the building.  The agents had hit the jackpot. Over 61/2 hours, the agents removed tens of thousands of documents relating to Iran's nuclear program. The documents included warhead designs and information on how other countries had assisted Iran in their nuclear program. The upshot is that the documents - as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a speech last April when he made the raid public - prove...

    New York Times ^ | 07/16/2018 | Claudia Dreifus
    Soon after Ilana Benet retired from her job as a labor and delivery nurse, it hit her: She missed the babies. And her employer missed her. Ms. Benet, a registered nurse, had worked at Montefiore Health System in the Bronx for 40 years before retiring two years ago at age 60. As a grandmother of 10, Ms. Benet wanted to spend more time with her family. But she quickly realized — within weeks — that she wasn’t ready for full retirement. Montefiore was ready to welcome her back. The hospital system developed an informal program to rehire some retired nurses...

    Democrat Socialist darling Ocasio-Cortez sent shock waves through the Democrat Party when she defeated the fourth most powerful Democrat in the House of Representatives, Rep. Joe Crowley, in the New York primary in June. The Democrat Socialists of America support no borders, no profit, no prisons and no cash bail. This weekend Ocasio Cortez held an interview with Firing Line with Margaret Hoover on PBS. Ocasio-Cortez: “I also think that what people are starting to see at least with the occupation of Palestine is the increasing crisis of humanitarian condition. And that to me is where I tend to come...

    Did anyone catch the press briefing this morning? Putin was asked by a reported whether he would be willing to cooperate with the Mueller investigation and a request for extradition of the 12 named intelligence agents accused of infiltrating and manipulation of the US election process. Putin declared that his government would be willing to allow Mueller investigators access to the 12 Russians in exchange for American cooperation in bringing to justice Clinton associates, including Mueller cohorts involved in illegal business transactions that allegedly took place in Russia, involving, according to Putin's statement, over $400 million dollars that was taken...

    It was November 2016 and the only person I knew who believed Trump would win the US election was the owner of my gym... But the gym owner, clearly not wanting to do his dough, pointed at this horrible thing in the corner with the name “sled” and said: “If Trump wins you have to pull 70kg on it.” I pulled the sled like a human oxen while being filmed and the gym staff cheered. I did it. But the Trump victory soured my successful show of strength. Yeah, I could pull a pretend sled. But how was that going...
