    Parkland student Jaclyn Corin encouraged protesters to “keep screaming at your congressman” so they will listen to pleas for gun control after the deadly shooting at her high school. Corin was one of many Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student organizers who developed the "March for Our Lives" rally in Washington, D.C. on Saturday. “There is strength in numbers and we need each and every one of you to keep screaming at your congressman,” Corin said. “Don’t be scared just because they have ‘Senator’ in front of their name.” Corin hit Congress for refusing to act despite American deaths to...
  • New Research Shows Guccifer 2.0 Files Were Copied Locally, Not Hacked

    07/09/2017 2:28:09 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 105 replies
    New meta-analysis has emerged from a document published today by an independent researcher known as The Forensicator, which suggests that files eventually published by the Guccifer 2.0 persona were likely initially downloaded by a person with physical access to a computer connected to the internal DNC network. The individual most likely used a USB drive to copy the information. The groundbreaking new analysis irrevocably destroys the Russian hacking narrative, and calls the actions of Crowdstrike and the DNC into question. The document supplied to Disobedient Media via Adam Carter was authored by an individual known as The Forensicator. The full...
  • The Clinton Dossier Gang That Knew Nothing

    “I know nothing,” isn’t just the motto of Sergeant Schultz. It’s also the Clinton motto. And Christopher Steele, the Brit whom the Clinton campaign hired to find out things for them, also knows nothing. Or at least that’s the theme of the sprawling New Yorker profile of Steele, his dossier and his associates. Steele, Jane Mayer, its authoress, tells us, is a brilliant researcher and we should take his word about all his allegations involving President Trump. Even the ones that aren’t true and don’t make any sense. But he doesn’t know anything.

    [title cont'd] "They hope it goes nationwide." When Deputy Patrick Paquette pulled to a stop on Interstate 20 in Georgia in January 2013, he didn’t anticipate a career-altering experience. He saw a young man and a far younger girl standing on the side of the highway. Both were handcuffed. The pair had been detained by an officer who had pulled them over for speeding, smelled pot and discovered a bag of marijuana. To Paquette, a Greene County sheriff’s deputy with 11 years of experience, it seemed like a routine case of drug possession. The man looked sullen. The young girl...
  • Manafort Case May Lead Back to Podesta Brothers, Russian Uranium, and Mueller’s Role as FBI Chief

    The Epoch Times ^ | November 5, 2017 11:10 | Joshua Philipp
    Special Counsel Robert Mueller unsealed charges on Oct. 30 against Paul Manafort and his business partner Richard Gates related to lobbying work they did from 2006 to 2015. According to the indictment, Manafort and Gates did not register as foreign agents while lobbying on behalf of the Ukrainian government, and tried to hide tens of millions of dollars they received in payments. Both have pleaded not guilty. The case may be much broader, however, and may include related actions of the Podesta Brothers—John Podesta was campaign manager of the Hillary Clinton campaign—and to a uranium deal tied to the Russians...

    A convicted pedophile who was sentenced to 300 years for sexually assaulting six children has been freed from Arkansas Valley Correctional Facility in Colorado. Michael McFadden, 46, was released on Tuesday after the Colorado Court of Appeals decided his right to a speedy trial had been violated. McFadden’s trial, which was scheduled for 2015, was delayed past the statutory requirements and courts ruled that he could not be retried. McFadden was released from custody and will not have to register as a sex offender because his convictions were vacated. “We are without remedy,” Dan Rubinstein, Mesa County District Attorney, told...

  • Leader's Party Claims Ukraine Win (Party Of Regions Leads In Vote)

    Ukrainians were voting for 450 MPs, half of whom are selected from party lists, and the other half from single-seat constituencies. Exit polls based only on party-list voting showed the Party of the Regions winning 28%, followed by Ms Tymoshenko's United Opposition Fatherland bloc on 24.7%. Party of Regions MP Borys Kolesnikov, a deputy prime minister, said his party was likely to dominate the single-seat constituencies. "There are 225 single-seat constituencies and we see our candidates winning two-thirds of them," he said. Prime Minister Mykola Azarov told a news conference it was clear that the Party of the Regions had...

    On Sunday’s “Face the Nation,” Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chairman John Podesta was rattled after CBS host Nancy Cordes asked him how the Russians knew to focus on Michigan and Wisconsin and Hillary didn’t. BRUTAL. Nancy Cordes referenced Robert Mueller’s indictment which revealed the Russians targeted swing states such as Michigan and Wisconsin for their disinformation campaign. “But it does beg the question, how is it that these Russian operatives knew to focus on purple states like Michigan and Wisconsin and your campaign didn’t?” Nancy Cordes asked. Podesta was visibly flustered. Cordes quickly shot back and said, “Hillary Clinton herself...

The 28-year-old, who appeared in court this week accused of plotting to kidnap, rape, and beat young girls, allegedly claimed that footage of the abuse could be sold for “ridiculously big” sums of money if they “got rid” of the victims by dissolving their bodies in a vat of acid afterwards, Court News UK reports.

    Report recommends banning fax, email balloting to improve cybersecurityDENVER — After years of accusing states of “voter suppression,” the Center for American Progress wants to make it tougher for overseas military to vote in the name of election security. The left-wing public-policy group issued Monday a report, “Election Security in All 50 States,” that called for stricter standards to prevent cyber-meddling in elections by foreign governments, including banning military stationed abroad from submitting ballots via email or fax. One state that allows such vote-casting is Colorado. The center called on the state to “prohibit voters stationed or living overseas from...
