    Moments before Wednesday’s impeachment hearings and right after U.S. Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland’s opening statement was released, Fox News contributor Ken Starr wondered aloud whether Sondland flipping on President Trump would cause GOP senators to push Trump to resign. “The real issue is the senators are watching,” Starr said. “Are senators going to now say in light of what we hear today, it’s going to be a long day even with the ambassador alone, in light of what we have heard, ‘We need to make a trip down to the White House’? That historic example set during the...

    RUSH: Grab sound bite number one, speaking of whistleblower. This is NPR this morning, Morning Edition. They played a portion of a report by one of their reporters, Bobby Allyn. ALLYN: Rush Limbaugh, online conservative publications and elsewhere, you know, really trying to out this individual. The individual’s name has been out there. It’s not been confirmed anywhere. And the whistleblower’s lawyers have not confirmed any of these reports. They also haven’t denied any of the reports. But here’s what we do know, that this whistleblower is from the intelligence community, and that’s basically it. RUSH: What do you mean,...

    Starr County provides a glimpse of what a new era of wall-building will mean... The barrier planned for Starr County is part of the longest stretch of new border wall so far constructed under Trump — a total of 95 miles in the Rio Grande Valley... Under current plans, Starr County will be completely walled off from Mexico. Federal maps show the county's meandering river border will be entirely blocked off by 52 miles of steel bollard wall — 18 to 30 feet tall. Every mile will include tall floodlights, hi-tech cameras and a 150-foot-wide patrol road.

    Jeffrey Epstein is accustomed to having an entourage meet his private jet at the airport; he’s just not used to it being made up of FBI agents. Last Saturday, the billionaire and registered sex offender returned from a trip to Paris only to be arrested. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, famously aggressive in pursuing high-profile prosecutions, charged Epstein last week with child sex trafficking in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1591. These new charges represent the Department of Justice’s attempt to redeem a reputation soiled by the extremely questionable plea deal...

    Green Bay Packers quarterback and Pro Football Hall of Famer Bart Starr passed away at the age of 85, the team announced Sunday. "We are saddened to note the passing of our husband, father, grandfather, and friend, Bart Starr," the Starr family said in a statement. "He battled with courage and determination to transcend the serious stroke he suffered in September 2014, but his most recent illness was too much to overcome. "While he may always be best known for his success as the Packers quarterback for 16 years, his true legacy will always be the respectful manner in which...

    The state is apologizing after a fifth grader found vulgar words in the STAAR Test. The student discovered the profanity in small lettering in images of a graffiti park inside the test booklet. Of the overall 413,000 students who took the test more than three weeks ago, more than 15,000 received the test with the four letter "F" word in it. In a statement, the Texas Education Agency apologized and said, "This is in no way acceptable or appropriate, and we deeply regret that these images appeared on the test."
  • THE MUELLER REPORT AND THE STARR REPORT: COMPARE AND CONTRAST

    04/21/2019 9:50:50 AM PDT · by DeweyCA · 16 replies
    In his long-awaited report, special counsel Robert Mueller found that the evidence failed to establish “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia. In addition, he did not find that President Trump committed obstruction of justice, the only other offense discussed in the report. By contrast, independent counsel Kenneth Starr, in his 1998 report, established that President Clinton perjured himself during a civil deposition, conspired to obstruct justice, violated criminal prohibitions against witness tampering, and perjured himself before a grand jury. When congressional Republicans commenced impeachment proceedings against Clinton, congressional Democrats and their media allies were outraged. Even though the evidence...

    Shortened title. Full title: Ken Starr: Hillary Clinton 'Triggered Vince Foster's Suicide, But This Is Why I Omitted It From The Final Report We all kid around about the so-called Clinton body bag conspiracy theory. For most, it’s for a few laughs or a jab at the Clintons, one of the Right’s favorite targets. With her defeat to Donald J. Trump in 2016, taking swipes at Hillary and Bill is still a pastime, though we don’t have to fear another term with them in the White House. In most cases, the swipes we take at the two-time presidential loser is...

Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, announced Wednesday that the U.S. Army Corps. of Engineers would only be constructing four of the eight miles originally slated for Starr County, according to a news release... The change of order from eight miles to four miles would make it so construction would bypass La Grulla and Roma entirely.

She was out of work for several weeks and struggled with dry eye following the procedure, reported the...

    Judge Brett Kavanaugh sits on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.  Several news articles, including those here, here, and here, mention him as a leading contender to be nominated by President Donald Trump to replace retiring justice Anthony Kennedy on the United States Supreme Court. The nomination of Kavanaugh would be ironic, given candidate Trump's disparaging comment about a death investigation in which Kavanaugh played a major role.  On July 20, 1993, Hillary Clinton's former law partner, and then deputy White House counsel for President Bill Clinton, Vincent Foster, was found dead in Virginia's Fort Marcy Park.  The official...

    On January 15, 1967, Green Bay Packers quarterback Bart Starr completed 16 of 23 passes for 250 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception as the Packers rolled over the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10 in the first AFL-NFL World Championship game (which would later become known as Super Bowl I). For his efforts, Starr was named the game's MVP and was awarded a shiny new 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray convertible. That Corvette is now going up for auction. The car is documented with a tank sticker that says "Courtesy Delivery - B. Starr." It presents with its original and...

    The Duke of Cambridge bestowed the honour on the Liverpool-born star at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace. "It means a lot actually," the musician told the BBC. "It means recognition for the things we've done. I was really pleased to accept this." The honour comes 53 years after the Beatles were all awarded the MBE - and Starr said he had missed his bandmates' companionship this time round. "I was a bit shaky today on my own," he said. (SNIP) Asked whether he wanted to be known as Sir Ringo, the musician, whose real name is Richard Starkey, replied: "I...

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave a resume to the Senate Judiciary Committee for his confirmation to be Deputy Attorney General. In that resume, provided under oath, he falsely stated the dates at which he worked for Ken Starr’s investigative legal team. Rosenstein testified to the Senate that he worked on Starr’s team beginning in 1995 and ending in 1997. Rosenstein said that he began working at the U.S. Attorney’s office in Maryland for the Clinton administration in the year 1997. However, records show that Rosenstein interviewed Hillary Clinton for Ken Starr in the Whitewater case on January 14, 1998....

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is investigating a case of purported voter fraud where a border county judge, who, although dead since 2010, continues to vote. This stunning information surfaced at a February Senate Select Committee on Election Security meeting when Brantley Starr, deputy first assistant to the AG, gave a “shout out” to the retired district judge born in 1930 who remains on the registration rolls despite his death nearly eight years ago. “The interesting thing that’s remarkable of him voting three times in his 80’s is he died in May of 2010,” remarked Starr.

    Ringo Starr will perform two shows in Israel later this year in defiance of the anti-Israel BDS movement that calls for the complete isolation of the Jewish State. The former Beatle made the announcement on his personal website. It comes just a week after New Zealand singer Lorde cancelled her planned Tel Aviv concert after a vocal campaign by BDS activists. Ringo has chosen a band that includes fellow rock legends Steve Lukather of Toto, Greg Rollie of Journey and Graham Gouldman of 10cc as the All-Starrs. The two shows are booked for Tel Aviv’s Menorah Mivtahim Arena on June...

    A key FBI agent who had been assigned to investigate Hillary Clinton and later President Trump traded text messages during the 2016 election, not only showing his disdain for Trump and preference for Clinton but also cryptically expressing a need for “an insurance policy” against a Trump presidency, whatever that means. This doesn’t prove a conspiracy either within the so-called "Deep State" or between it and Clinton, any more than the dribs and drabs leaked by the FBI to news media proves a conspiracy between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Trump. What it does show is that even in our...
