    Fox News host Sean Hannity isn’t letting Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort distract from the real scandal– The Clinton-Uranium One deal. Hannity teased he would expose Mueller in tonight’s monologue. “I have a powerful monologue that you don’t want to miss… We will expose Robert Mueller’s corrupt special counsel next.” According to Hannity, Fox News Legal Contributor Gregg Jarrett discovered both Deputy Attorney General Ron Rosenstein and Mueller’s right hand man, Andrew Weissmann, former head of the fraud unit at Obama/Holder’s Justice Department, signed the plea agreement of the Russian businessman embroiled in...
  • Michael Flynn Pleads Guilty to Lying to the F.B.I.

    NY Slimes ^ | 12/1/2017 | EILEEN SULLIVAN, ADAM GOLDMAN and MICHAEL D. SHEAR
    ....Mr. Flynn is the fourth Trump associate to be charged. He was accused of making false statements to F.B.I. agents about two discussions with the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey I. Kislyak. Lying to the F.B.I. carries a penalty of up to five years in prison. While Mr. Trump can point to the court documents and say they show no evidence of collusion with Russia, the special counsel’s filings so far paint a damning portrait of Mr. Trump’s associates. His former campaign chairman, two other campaign aides, and his former national security advisers have now all been charged...
  • U.S. Military Jets Have 'No Business' in Black Sea, Says Russian General After 'Unsafe' Intercept

    According to the Pentagon, the Russian fighter swooped in to follow the U.S. aircraft while in international airspace—an acceptable precaution after identifying a foreign jet, even though the P-8A had its transponders on. However the Russian jet crossed in front of the U.S. plane from right to left, the Pentagon told CNN, engaging its afterburners, thereby prompting the U.S. Poseidon to spanner into "a 15-degree roll and violent turbulence." The Russian military subsequently confirmed that the intercept over international waters did take place but did not address the accusation that the maneuver was unsafe or reveal other details about the...

    MOSCOW, Russia, November 2, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Patriarch Kirill of Moscow opened the seventh church-wide Congress for Social Work with the repeated admonition that ending abortion is priority number one. His Holiness stated emphatically that the fight for innocent human life is, and must remain, the Church’s main social work.   “The problem of abortion in our country … is our highest priority,” he unequivocally stated. Many anti-marriage and anti-family issues have come to the fore in recent years, but Kirill brought the focus back to the source of social division and cultural death.   “A few years ago, I...

    Rep.

So, they produced this dossier and I believe, yesterday I called for the FBI, the Justice Department to declassify all the FISA applications involving Trump associates because...

    CNN prides itself apparently in being a facts first organization. There’s that idiotic apple ad they’ve been running. This is what CNN’s Chris Cillizza wrote on October 19, which pretty much slams President Trump for suggesting that the FBI, the Democrats, and Russia might be conspirators with these files. It was in reaction to a tweet in which the president said, “Workers of firm involved with the discredited and Fake Dossier take the 5th. Who paid for it, Russia, the FBI or the Dems (or all)?” He is suggesting that a dossier prepared by a former member of British intelligence...

    The Washington Post’s recent report that the Clinton campaign, not Trump, in close coordination with the Democratic National Committee, hired the shady firm that used gossip created by Russian agents to bring us the erroneous and infamous Trump Dossier marks a key turning point in the Mueller investigation into Russia’s attempts to influence the 2016 election. The DNC not only accepted this wholly uncorroborated information included in this Dossier, but actually financed it and spread it throughout Washington. This is the real Russian collusion. The former Soviet Union is trying to divide us and have us at each other’s throats....

    For more than a year now, you could hear the word echoing from Congressional offices and TV studios all over Washington DC: Russia, Russia! Mind you, these are the exact same people who spent more than 7 decades making excuses for the Soviet Union; yet, the Democrats and their mainstream media pundits were suddenly convinced that Russian spies have invaded the US (and the internet by the way) back in 2016, thus trying to destroy America’s democracy and install their golem in the White-House. Trump only won because, of course, he was Vladimir Putin’s pet. That was the left’s claim....

    WARSAW, POLAND — When the centenary of the Bolshevik revolution falls this autumn, Christian communities across the former Soviet Union will commemorate the persecutions it unleashed upon them. But they'll also recall the religious meditations born in the country's prisons and labor camps, some of which deserve to rank with the best in Christian history. "Soviet-era sufferings affected not just the churches but the whole of society, atheists included," said Msgr. Igor Kovalevsky, secretary-general of Russia's Catholic Bishops' Conference. "Secular writers like Alexander Solzhenitsyn and Nadhezda Mandelstam may have become the most famous. But themes of witness and martyrdom also...

    The House Intelligence Committee has postponed a quietly scheduled open hearing intended to nudge the Department of Justice into complying with a subpoena related to a controversial dossier linking President Trump to Russia. Talks are ongoing between the Justice Department and the committee over what information the department will provide and how. Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is scheduled to meet with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Thursday as part of the negotiations. A spokesman for the department told The Hill earlier in the week that it had requested that the subpoenas be placed on hold during the discussions....

    Political legend Roger Stone appeared before the House Intelligence Committee today during a closed hearing intended to tackle the allegations of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, but rather than Roger standing trial, he flipped the script in proper Stonean fashion and put the entire committee itself on trial. In an exclusive interview, a TGP sat down with Mr. Stone and discussed some of the finer details of the hearing and also touched briefly on the Alabama senate race, the slippery, snakelike DNC operative John Podesta, and the much gossiped about Guccifer 2.0. What follows is a penetrating looks at...

    Two people were hospitalized with serious injuries after a helicopter accidentally fired on bystanders at the Zapad 2017 military exercises, the online news portal 66.ru cited a source as saying on Tuesday. The week-long drills in Western Russia and neighboring Belarus kicked off last week, with around 13,000 troops, hundreds of tanks, aircraft, warships and other military hardware participating. The incident reportedly took place at the Luzhsky range near St. Petersburg either on Monday or Sunday. President Vladimir Putin visited the range on Monday. The unnamed source told 66.ru that there appeared to have been a technical glitch on board...
