    Woody Allen, David Lynch and Martin Scorsese today added their names to a petition demanding the immediate release of Roman Polanski from detention in Zurich. The director was arrested on Saturday over a three-decade-old underage sex case when he arrived to receive a lifetime achievement award at the city's film festival. "Film-makers in France, in Europe, in the United States and around the world are dismayed by this decision," says the petition, which is co-ordinated by the Société des Auteurs et Compositeurs Dramatiques (SACD), a film industry organisation which also represents performance and visual artists.
  • Franken’s resignation shows that only 1 of our 2 great parties has any integrity(hurl alert)

    Washington Post ^ | December 7th 2017 | Paul Waldman
    Al Franken announced his resignation on the floor of the Senate today, a development that makes abundantly clear that the Democratic and Republican parties have never been more different in modern American history than they are right at this moment. Franken’s speech started off on a surprisingly defiant note, going much farther than he had up until this point in asserting that the charges made against him are not true. But that only reinforces the point I’m making about the two parties, as I’ll explain in a moment: “Over the last few weeks, a number of women have come forward...

    US Senate Floor ^ | Dec 7, 2017 | Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
    Prepared Senate Floor Statement by Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa Chairman, Senate Judiciary Committee Bipartisan Congressional Oversight December 6, 2017 VIDEO Mr. President, I have been doing oversight of the executive branch for a very long time. I’ve done it as a Ranking Member. I’ve done it as a Chairman. I’ve done it when my party held the White House. And, I’ve done it when the other party held the White House. Earlier this year, I stood up for the rights of my Democrat colleagues to do oversight of the Trump administration, even while they are in the Minority. I...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | December 4, 2017 | Ian Schwartz
    Tucker Carlson delivers commentary on FBI agent Peter Strzok and an "out of control" FBI on Monday's broadcast of his FOX News show. Strzok was heavily involved in two politicized cases -- the Clinton email investigation and the Russian collusion probe and oversaw interviews with Mike Flynn. "There are many examples of this, but the point is clear, the FBI is out of control and not just in the Trump investigation but much more broadly. An agency charged with enforcing the law clearly considers itself above the law, and that is a threat to you and every American, no matter...

    In yet another blow to Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, the special counsel was forced to fire a top FBI agent after possible anti-Trump text messages were discovered. “ The agent, Peter Strzok, is considered one of the most experienced and trusted F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators. He helped lead the investigation into whether Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information on her private email account, and then played a major role in the investigation into links between President Trump’s campaign and Russia,” reports the New York Times. Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller combed through emails from...

    The Congressional Office of Compliance secretly paid close to $100,000 in taxpayer funds to settle sexual harassment claims from at least two young male staffers who worked for disgraced former Democratic New York Rep. Eric Massa, multiple sources with direct knowledge of the matter are now saying. He resigned in 2010 after allegations surfaced that he groped and sexually harassed his male staffers. What a scumbag. The secret settlement payments took place in 2010 following Massa’s resignation, ABC News reported on Thursday. Even fellow Democrats can’t stomach this crap. “This is exactly why there should be transparency,” said Rep. Kathleen...
  • What will be the next class of scandals to be exposed?

    Vanity | 29 November, 2017 | Dean Weingarten
    We are undergoing an explosion of scandals involving sexual harassment. The vast majority of those being exposed are leftist powerhouses. The reason seems clear to me. Those are the people the establishment media were willing to spike stories to protect. I call this the sexual harassment class of scandals. The establishment media no longer has the credibility, reach, or power to spike these stories. The stories are about behavior the media claim to abhor, so they must be covered, once they escape into the general notice of the public. I predict it will not stop with sexual harassment. There are...

    With all the naysayers saying Trump has done nothing it is obvious his victory is causing the DNC, Media and Hollywood swamps to be drained. The Sexual Inquisition, unlike anything since the Red Scare in the 50’s has destroyed dozens of stellar careers overnight in a runaway nuclear reaction. Congress is feeling the fallout and there is a huge unseen toxic well of hidden crimes and abuses about to be exposed, and Trump voters could not be happier. But how did Trump do this? Not willingly, but his victory made this possible and allowed even left wing journalists to safely...

    After receiving documents from national security reporter, documentary filmmaker and author Mike Cernovich, Buzzfeed published an article revealing that Michigan Rep. John Conyers settled a wrongful dismissal complaint with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not “succumb to [his] sexual advances.” Mike Cernovich: "According to data released to Reid Wilson of The Hill, Congress has paid out as much as $4 million per fiscal year to women abused by Congressmen. Although these settlements are paid with taxpayer funds, the settlements are kept secret from the public."

    American Majority founder Ned Ryun talked about Roy Moore and the Alabama Senate race with Breitbart News Executive Chairman Steve Bannon and SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Friday’s Breitbart News Daily, broadcast live from the Restoration Weekend event. Bannon asked Ryun about celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred’s involvement in the Roy Moore case, representing a woman who accuses Moore of assaulting her in 1977 when she was 16 years old. Ryan said Allred is “basically a human vulture when you look back at some of the things she’s been involved in.”

    For all of his success as a prosecutor, state legislator and congressman, it might have been his experience with a Black kid from Inglewood that has shaped Schiff most. In his mid-20s, fresh out of law school, he volunteered to become a “big brother” through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles. He was paired with David McMillan, a child of a single mother who needed a male role model for her son. The two hit it off immediately, bonding over “The Big Lebowski,” Billy Joel and the beach. Three decades later, they are still part of each other’s...

    We miss the days when Hillary Clinton was hiding out in the woods of Chappaqua, but that promotional tour for her book “What Happened” brought her out of the forest and into just about every bookstore still standing, as well as every news network, daytime chat show, and podcast. That tour seems to be winding down as Hillary hits smaller news outlets, but as Twitchy reported Wednesday night, there are new questions to ask. For example, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has reportedly made noises about appointing a special counsel to investigate the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One.

The documents include two email exchanges classified confidential and a 2011 exchange with Sid Blumenthal about “serious trouble for the Libyan rebels.” The newly-produced emails were part of 72,000 pages of documents the FBI recovered last year in its investigation into Clinton’s use of an unsecure, non-government email system. The records include emails Hillary Clinton attempted to delete or did not otherwise disclose. Two heavily redacted emails marked Classified Confidential included a November 2011 exchange under the Subject: “Egyptian...
