    Fox News host Sean Hannity is linked to a group of shell companies that have spent $90 million buying hundreds of homes across the U.S through the help of foreclosures and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Guardian reported Sunday. More than 870 homes in seven different states have been purchased over the past decade, ranging from large mansions to rentals for low-income families, according to the newspaper. For some of the mortgages, Hannity reportedly obtained funding from HUD under the National Housing Act loan program, which was first guaranteed under President Obama’s administration. Secretary Ben...

    Peter Hitchens has weighed in with some reflections on the Syrian situation following the alleged 'chemical attack' and the limited military action that followed it. "The following story appeared in the Mail on 15th April: 'A FORMER head of Britain's Special Forces has challenged Theresa May's claim that President Assad was behind the chemical attack in Douma. 'Major General Jonathan Shaw said: "Why would Assad use chemical weapons at this time? He's won the war. That's not just my opinion, it is shared by senior commanders in the US military. There is no rationale behind Assad's involvement whatsoever." Hitchens also...

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Sunday that the United States would not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals were accomplished. Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Haley listed three aims for the United States: ensuring that chemical weapons are not used in any way that pose a risk to U.S. interests, that Islamic State is defeated and that there is a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing.
  • Defense Secretary Mattis Wanted Congressional Approval Before Striking Syria. He Was Overruled.

    Defense Secretary Jim Mattis urged President Trump to get congressional approval before the United States launched airstrikes against Syria last week, but was overruled by Mr. Trump, who wanted a rapid and dramatic response, military and administration officials said. Mr. Trump, the officials said, wanted to be seen as backing up a series of bellicose tweets with action, but was warned that an overly aggressive response risked igniting a wider war with Russia. Friday night’s limited strikes on three targets, which lasted under two minutes, were the compromise.

    The substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, according to Swiss state Spiez lab, the Russian foreign minister said. The toxin was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states. Sergei Skripal, a former Russian double agent, and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with an incapacitating toxin known as 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate or BZ, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, citing the results of the examination conducted by a Swiss chemical lab that worked with the samples that London handed over to the Organisation for the Prohibition of the Chemical...

  • The problem with leftist myths about Syria

    04/11/2018 10:21:46 AM PDT · by BeadCounter · 32 replies
    Why are voices on the left still justifying the Syrian regime’s indiscriminate bombardment of Eastern Ghouta? As the death toll in the Damascus' suburb of Eastern Ghouta reached nearly 700 in two weeks and continues to rise, many so-called progressive voices continue to justify the carnage. Many are dead convinced that the regime is fighting al-Qaeda in Eastern Ghouta, which is using civilians as human shields - hence the hundreds of dead are not really the regime's fault. A great number of leftist in the West and the East have been buying into regime propaganda for years now. From Australian...

    Republican political strategist Rick Wilson has become one of the avatars of the “Never Trump” movement on cable news telecasts. And on August 21, via the Simon and Schuster Free Press imprint, Wilson will have a book to plug during his frequent TV hits. “Everything Trump Touches Dies is my take on the damage Donald Trump has done to our nation, our politics, and our sanity. I pull no punches, take no prisoners, and show how Donald Trump has led Republicans off a political cliff, broken our institutions, and shattered the lives and reputations of everyone around him,” Wilson wrote...

    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...

    A disturbing livestreamed video went viral this week after a former Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter volunteer claimed she once killed a dog as retaliation against the dog's owner. Simone Scott, who goes by the online names "Aqualadora" and "AqualaGamer," smiles as she talks to fellow Twitch streamers about euthanizing the 4-year-old dog. "I once killed someone's dog on purpose. But no one knew because I was a professional," she says. The UC Santa Cruz graduate claims she was working as a veterinary tech at the time, and said the owner was a "really really bad person." "The dog was...
  • Amazon Inc. Paid Zero in Federal Taxes in 2017, Gets $789 Million Windfall from New Tax Law

    ITEP ^ | 02/13/18
    In 2017, Amazon reported $5.6 billion of U.S. profits and didn’t pay a dime of federal income taxes on it. The company’s financial statement suggests that various tax credits and tax breaks for executive stock options are responsible for zeroing out the company’s tax this year. The company’s zero percent rate in 2017 reflects a longer term trend. During the previous five years, Amazon reported U.S. profits of $8.2 billion and paid an effective federal income tax rate of just 11.4 percent. This means the company was able to shelter more than two-thirds of its profits from tax during that...

    Are you allowed guns in Russia? Found this information. Individuals are not allowed to carry guns acquired for self-defense; a license only serves as a carrying permit for hunting and sport firearms when these guns need to be transported. Russian citizens may not own guns that shoot in bursts or have magazines with more than a ten-cartridge capacity.

    ABC, AP and others ran with false information on shooter’s ties to extremist groups. Following misrepresentations by a white nationalist leader and coordinated efforts by internet trolls, numerous researchers and media outlets spread a seemingly false claim that the man charged with killing more than a dozen people at a Florida high school belonged to an extremist group. Law enforcement agencies say they have no evidence so far to support this claim, and the rumor appears to have been perpetrated by white nationalist trolls themselves.

    Weather prediction for President Trump — “Stormy” weather ahead. Stormy Daniels, the porn star who allegedly had an affair with Donald Trump, now says she’s ready to tell all about their tryst after Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen admitted he paid her $130,000 out of his own pocket a week before the 2016 presidential election, website The Blast reported on Wednesday, citing sources. “Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,” Cohen told the New York Times.
