    FOX News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett went on with Sean Hannity on Friday night after the release of the House Intelligence FISA memo. Jarrett said his sources told him Rod Rosenstein threatened the House Intelligence Committee members three weeks ago. .............................. Gregg Jarrett: I can tell you a congressional source tells me that Rod Rosenstein in a meeting three weeks ago threatened Chairman Nunes and members of Congress he was going to subpoena their texts and messages because he was tired of dealing with the intel committee. That’s threats and intimidation.

    Donald Trump Jr. Twitter feed ^ | July 11, 2017 | Donald Trump, Jr.
    It's a two part tweet. The media will focus on the part that says that the Russian government has information to provide to the Trump campaign, and that they support Trump. That part reads like an operation to entrap Trump, Jr. Trump just wanted to talk on the phone, eventually agreed to a meeting.

  • Paul Ryan Plummets to 43 Percent in New Primary Poll

    07/09/2016 4:39:30 PM PDT · by Defiant · 129 replies ^ | July 9, 2016 | Julia Hahn
    A poll of likely Republican voters shows House Speaker Paul Ryan well below 50 percent in his race to maintain his seat in Wisconsin’s first Congressional district. The poll was conducted by P.M.I., with 424 respondents randomly called from a file of 11,000 likely GOP primary voters. It shows that with one month remaining before Wisconsin’s August 9th vote, Ryan is polling at 43 percent. Ryan’s challenger, Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen, is polling at 32 percent. The Nehlen campaign notes that Ryan’s 43 percent “represents a drop of more than 30 points since the Nehlen campaign began polling likely Republican...

    ....... And make no mistake, this election is about the survival of the country that Donald Trump has promised to make great again. Obama, Hillary Clinton and their far-left allies have increased the tempo of their assaults on constitutional liberty and the external threats to our national security and domestic tranquility have grown ever greater. Why then, in the face of the indisputable threats facing our country, would mature men and women who purport to be leaders of the Republican Party and the conservative movement do anything that strengthens Hillary Clinton, that gives her even one more vote? I find...

    With the increased importance of all communication platforms, there are now entire industries of paid agents who receive compensation for trolling the internet.... Today was predicted to be a good day for candidate Donald Trump. It is not accidental that every political entity, every political adversary, in every venue, all day, from morning to night, is pushing negative stories about Donald Trump. This is transparently by design. Again, the goal is complete demoralization of their opponent and to turn a day of joyful victory into a day of concern and anxiety. Matt Drudge warned about this six months ago. Drudge...

    In the final installment of our series on what conservatives should do if Donald Trump wins the nomination we look at a final scenario and offer our recommendation on whether conservatives should join Trump or the Republican establishment at the Republican National Convention. ....... Conclusion If conservatives form their own cultural conservative Third Party to oppose Trump in the General election they are certain to elect Hillary Clinton. If conservatives sit out the election they are certain to elect Hillary Clinton. Based on the historical evidence, the results to-date in the 2016 primaries and 2016 exit polling if conservatives make...

    And now we've closed the circle. And now we're back at why Donald Trump is in the race and why Donald Trump is running away with it. You can get as deep or as shallow in the analysis as you want. But it's about a last chance, a last-gasp effort at preserving the culture that developed after the founding of this country. It's no more complicated than that, folks. The country's under siege from all quarters, and recently the Democrat Party has joined those who have put the country under siege. Now, in this instance I'm not even talking about...

    What If? An Alternative History of the War since 9/11 Newt Gingrich Introduction American Enterprise Institute September 10, 2007 (Text of speech as prepared for delivery. The essence of this speech is very simple. Six years after the attack of 9/11/2001 we are having the wrong debate about the wrong report. The heart of our problem is in attitude. Wars require bold efforts and undertaking real risks. We must recognize the requirements for change and we must adopt a spirit that it is better to make mistakes of commission and then fix them than it is to avoid achievement by...

    Brain Pickings ^ | August 9, 2015 | Maria Popova
    In the spring of 2015, a nine-year-old boy named Dexter went to Disneyland with his family and found himself deeply unsettled — not by a scary ride or the unpleasantness of waiting in line, but by some of the most unsettling cultural issues of our time: racial and gender stereotypes. Disney, the world’s most prolific purveyor of pink plastic, has a long history of perpetuating gender stereotypes and feeding our unconscious biases, but what Dexter so astutely observed seemed like a particularly acute symptom of a larger cultural malady. .......... Dexter and Sybilla go to The Cathedral School of St....

    City schools police have obtained their own military-grade Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle through a federal grant. Known as an MRAP, the armored vehicle will be converted into a victim rescue vehicle that will be stocked with thousands of dollars in advanced medical supplies and be able to take heavy fire in case of an attack on campus, the San Diego Unified School District Police Department said Tuesday. The MRAP, valued at more than $700,000, was acquired at no cost to the district. The vehicle is expected to be operational in October.
  • An Obama Pardon of Illegals?

    Rush Limbaugh ^ | June 12, 2014 | Me
    I just heard on Rush's show that there is a possibility that Obama will issue a blanket pardon of all illegal aliens in the United States. Rush said that he will use the threat of this to goad Republicans into passing an immigration reform bill. What needs to be understood about this threat is that it doesn't change much. The constitutional power of the president to pardon people of crimes allows this pres__ent to excuse the crimes that the illegals have committed at the time of the pardon. What is the crime? Being in the country illegally. OK, so we...

    Using a new method for exploring ancient relationships among languages, linguists have found evidence further illuminating the peopling of North America about 14,000 years ago. Their findings follow a recent proposal that the ancestors of Native Americans were marooned for some 15,000 years on a now sunken plain before they reached North America. This idea, known as the Beringian standstill hypothesis, has been developed by geneticists and archaeologists over the last seven years. It holds that the ancestors of Native Americans did not trek directly across the land bridge that joined Siberia to Alaska until the end of the last...

    REP. CHRIS VAN HOLLEN (D-Md.) told an audience at a Georgetown symposium today that he is confident the immigration bill the Senate passed in June has enough bipartisan support in the House of Representatives. “In the House, in my judgment, that bill would actually pass today if you put it up for a vote,” he said. “In fact, I don’t think there is much dispute over that fact.” Van Hollen and former Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.) were part of the “Implementing Immigration Reform: Imagining the Possibilities” symposium, co-hosted by Georgetown’s Institute for the Study of International Migration (ISIM) and Deloitte....

    OK, I admit it. I love snark. I love a well-crafted one, and I love to try my hand at it. Perhaps too often, I will concede. You definitely don't want to be considered "too snarky". But I can't help it. It's just too much fun. When I see a headline that is just screaming out for snark, I jump on the thread, and all too often see that another Freeper has beaten me to my snark. Did you know that the plural of snark is snark. As in "I posted 5 snark today". Honestly. While I play at snark,...

    The St. Louis Cardinals general manager ordered a cross carved into the pitcher’s mound to be removed following a fan complaining about the religious symbol to local newspapers. Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak asked the grounds crew to remove the cross and not to put the religious symbol on the mound again after learning of the practice from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “It’s not just club policy to be putting religious symbols on the playing field or throughout the ballpark,” Mozeliak told the Post-Dispatch. “I didn’t ask for the reason behind it. I just asked for it to stop.”

    Facebook has announced that it's teaming up with four of the world's largest corporate data brokers to "enhance" the ad experience for users. Datalogix, Epsilon, Acxiom, and BlueKai obtain information gathered about users through online means (such as through cookies when users surf the web) as well as through offline means (such as through loyalty cards at supermarkets and product warranty cards). Through the new relationship with Facebook, companies will be able to display advertisements to Facebook users based on data that these data brokers have on individuals. Here's how to stop them.

    San Diego News Room ^ | December 12, 2012 | not stated
    SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Changes in San Diego voter demographics that became apparent with the election of Bob Filner as mayor are probably permanent, with the city's political power shifting toward independents and residents south of Interstate 8, according to a study released Wednesday. The National University System Institute for Policy Research found that Mayor Bob Filner's election victory over ex-Councilman Carl DeMaio was fueled by voters south of the freeway that runs through Mission Valley. The freeway is a traditional, but not entirely accurate, dividing line between economic "haves'' and "have-nots'' and a border between Republican- and Democratic-leaning enclaves.

    Torrey Pines Bank has entered into a consent agreement with federal regulators after a compliance examination raised concerns over fairness in its credit card applications and other issues. The consent agreement with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. focuses on underwriting practices for its PartnersFirst credit card division, which regulators say discriminates against consumers on the basis of age and gender. The bank strongly disputes that claim. The agreement also targets the bank’s written policies regarding risk management, including plans for profitability and road maps for reducing its concentration in commercial real estate loans. The order requires the bank to make...

    NASA scientists have discovered a mysterious ribbon around our solar system —- a stripe made of hydrogen —- that defies all current expectations about what the edge of the solar system might look like. Richard Fisher, the director of NASA's Heliophysics Division, tells NPR's Guy Raz that this discovery is a big moment for the scientific community. "We thought we knew everything about everything, and it turned out that there were unknown unknowns."
