  • John Brennan and Baltic Spies Teamed Up to Defeat Trump

    The American Spectator ^ | 03/28/17 | GEORGE NEUMAYR
    The origin of the Obama administration’s investigation of imaginary Trump-Russia collusion remains murky, but this much is clear: John Brennan, Obama’s Trump-hating CIA director, stands at the center of it. Brennan pushed for a multi-agency investigation of the Trump campaign, using as his pretext alleged intelligence from an unnamed Baltic state. That “intelligence” was supplied at the very moment Baltic officials had their own political motivation to smear Trump. “Last April, the CIA director was shown intelligence that worried him. It was – allegedly – a tape recording of a conversation about money from the Kremlin going into the US...
  • Europe takes in refugees by the millions; Saudis blow them out of the water

    The Duran ^ | March 27, 2017 | Ricky Twisdale
    While Germany, Greece, the Visegrad countries, and Brussels all argue about who should take in the most migrants, the Saudis have evidently found a much simpler solution to the problem. A boat carrying Somali refugees off the coast of Yemen was allegedly attacked by the Saudi-led coalition which is intervening in Yemen’s civil war, reported Human Rights Watch. “The coalition’s apparent firing on a boat filled with fleeing refugees is only the latest likely war crime in Yemen’s two-year-long war,” HRW’s Middle East director Sarah Leah Whitson said. Here’s their account of what transpired: One of the boat’s four Yemeni crew members...

    The People’s Liberation Army, the army of the Chinese Communist Party, recently announced a breakthrough on a key weapons programs that may change the nature of war. Chinese scientists claim they’ve had unexpected success in developing a high-powered microwave (HPM) weapon, according to The Diplomat. The magazine notes that in January, Huang Wenhua, deputy director of China’s Northwest Institute of Nuclear Technology, was awarded for his research on directed energy, which HPM weapons use. HPM systems are able to destroy electronic equipment, and in an age when most combat systems—from tanks to planes, radios to satellites—rely on electronics, the weapons...

    A wounded Paul Ryan is facing another potential crisis over the next month. The Speaker, who saw his years-long effort to repeal ­ObamaCare collapse last week after a rebellion on the right, must come up with a plan to fund the federal government and avert a shutdown. The Wisconsin Republican will face many of the same tricky intraparty dynamics as he tries to keep the government running. Funding expires in about a month, on April 28, but the House is taking a two-week recess in mid-April, leaving negotiators just a few legislative work weeks to reach a deal. The stakes...

    The Western media missed an oh-so juicy nugget out Russia recently that should have set off alarm bells in Washington. Asked about the current state of U.S.-Russia relations, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova gave a long winded answer that can be read below. In her answer, Zakharova suggested Russia may “publish leaks” about “secrets” the Obama administration asked the Russian government to keep private. The shocking statement can be found in the second to last paragraph of Zakharova’s answer highlighted in both bold and italic. You could just imagine the headlines this would have made if this was about a...

  • Europe: Death by a Thousand Cuts

    There was a form of torture and eventual execution employed by Chinese authorities from about 900-1905. The formal name is lingchi, meaning death by a thousand cuts. The victim being put to death did not expire immediately, but instead bled to death very slowly and excruciatingly. Lingchi describes what is happening to Western European nations. They are slowly dying because of Islamist terrorists’ thousand cuts. But it is clear that, although the nations of Europe receive cut after cut, most of the leaders of those nations, as well as the leaders of the European Union, still will not acknowledge that...

Cuomo claimed that the Obama regs are “seen as key to keeping the United States from looking like Shanghai in terms of blowing all kinds of black smoke into the air.” View the video here.

According to the report, any strikes against Syrian military targets will be met with Scuds launched at IDF bases while any strikes against civilian infrastructure will be met with missiles fired at Haifa's port and petrochemical plant.

    As they investigate the forces behind the party’s stunning losses in November, Democrats are coming to a troubling conclusion. The party didn’t just lose among rural white voters on Election Day, it may have failed to capture them in its pre-election polling as well. Many pollsters and strategists believe that rural white voters, particularly those without college degrees, eluded the party’s polling altogether — and their absence from poll results may have been both a cause and a symptom of Donald Trump’s upset victory over Hillary Clinton in several states. Determining what exactly happened is one of the most pressing...

They point to big demonstrations including January's Women's March and the upcoming Earth Day "March for Science." Occupy Wall Street co-creator Micah White says bravo, but there's just one problem: Big street protests don't work. They're ineffectual, even counterproductive, he says. "We could have large-scale marches for every year of Trump's presidency. It would do nothing!" the activist and author tells me sitting in his kitchen in rural Nehalem, Ore., near the Pacific coast.

    Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s path to 60 votes is rapidly closing — setting the stage for a nuclear showdown in the Senate as soon as next week. Senior Democratic sources are now increasingly confident that Gorsuch can’t clear a filibuster, saying his ceiling is likely mid- to upper-50s on the key procedural vote. That would mark the first successful filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee since Abe Fortas for chief justice in the 1960s. In the latest ominous sign for the federal judge from Colorado, Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) said Monday he’ll oppose Gorsuch on the cloture vote, which...

However, the actual intelligence report(s) he reviewed, which contained the unmasked surveillance information, was simply President Obama’s daily intelligence Briefing(s).

Morris said he did this last week---in fact, I heard more than four weeks ago that the IRS was NOT enforcing this and just assumed it came from Trump. Second, the requirement that you buy from an "approved" insurance company---Trump waived that as well by telling HHS to approve any policy as "qualifying." Yes, some of the subsidies and...

    @aleklicho art Argentina was almost the first country to develop a small, supersonic cruise missile. Way back in 1960. On May 30 of that year, Dr. Reimar Horten — a former warplane designer for Nazi Germany — met with officials at the Aerotechnical Institute of Argentina’s Military Aircraft Factory, or FMA, to propose what he described as “supersonic flying bomb.” Horten had emigrated to Argentina after World War II, leaving behind his brother, an equally accomplished aeronautical engineer.

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) said in an interview with Elle magazine published Monday that she "is out to get" President Donald Trump and wants to ensure that he will be impeached. [Snip] Waters said she was so outspoken about her dislike for Trump because she "could not live with the way he treated other people." "I'm out to get him," she said. "And when he talked about grabbing women? Okay? I'm out to get him. I'm gonna see him out of office. And I think it's going to happen. Get ready for impeachment."

    President Donald Trump's job approval rating fell to 36% for the three-day period of March 24-26, following Republican House leaders' failed effort to pass a new healthcare bill that would have replaced the Affordable Care Act. Trump's three-day reading prior to Friday's events was 41%. His previous low point was 37%, recorded March 16-18. His highest reading was 46% in the week following his Jan. 20 inauguration, and he has averaged 42% for his term to date. Trump's current 36% is two percentage points below Barack Obama's low point of 38%, recorded in 2011 and 2014. Trump has also edged...

    By Wallace Bruschweiler & William Palumbo Last week, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives failed to pass the one thing they have consistently preached since 2010: a repeal of Obamacare. It was the latest (and most severe) setback since President Trump took office just two months ago. The fallout of this failure is a fiasco for Republicans and, in particular, President Trump. Before another Republican failure finds itself on the doorsteps of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, below are some questions for your, and the administration’s, serious consideration. To the following questions we offer no answers. It is the job of those in...

    Nearly two dozen people from five states are accusing Attorney General Jeff Sessions of lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee about his communications with the Russian government and subsequently trying to cover up that lie, according to a complaint sent to the Department of Justice. The complaint, which names 23 residents, states that Sessions gave false and misleading testimony during his confirmation hearing in January when he told the Senate committee that he "did not have communications with the Russians." It further accuses the attorney general of covering up the alleged perjury by directing a spokeswoman to make a public...

    The Drive ^ | MARCH 27, 2017 | TYLER ROGOWAY
    Much has been made about America's so-called "icebreaker gap"—Russia has roughly 40 with many more in production while the US has one that is operational—and we have talked extensively about how the frigid arctic is likely to be a contested territory and battlefield of the future. But Russia isn't just building more icebreakers or ice-capable logistics ships—they are also building fighting ships that can go independently where few other surface combatant can, and carry much heavier firepower while doing so. Russia has ordered two of the 6,800 ton displacement, 374 foot-long Project 23550 Ice class patrol ships, which are more...
