    NYT ^ | 12/21/19 | Edward Wong
    WASHINGTON — About 90 minutes after President Trump held a controversial telephone call with President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine in July, the White House budget office ordered the Pentagon to suspend all military aid that Congress had allocated to Ukraine, according to emails released by the Pentagon late Friday. A budget official, Michael Duffey, also told the Pentagon to keep quiet about the aid freeze because of the “sensitive nature of the request,” according to a message dated July 25. An earlier email that Mr. Duffey sent to the Pentagon comptroller suggested that Mr. Trump began asking aides about $250...

    House Speaker Kirk Cox, R-Colonial Heights, said in a statement that Democratic leader Eileen Filler-Corn, D-Fairfax, has repeatedly spurned offers by House Courts Committee Chairman Rob Bell, R-Albemarle, to hold a bipartisan hearing that would allow the two women to testify. “There should be no mistake about what has happened here: the alleged victims are seeking a bipartisan hearing; Republicans are seeking a bipartisan hearing; Democrats in the House of Delegates are refusing to allow that to happen,” Cox said.

    LIVE! Pageant starts at 7PM through 10PM ET tonight on FOX. First Trans contestant, Angela Ponce of Spain, expected to be a Semifinalist (ugly as a toad, and she has a d*ck, but Las Vegas bookies have places her odds as winning the whole thing to be quite high). Look also for a lot of "TRUMP BASHING" if any Central or South American contestants make it to the Q&A round. Enjoy!
  • Let’s Take a Stroll – Letter of Notice From Trump Transition To Congress Outlining Illegal

    CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE ^ | 12/17/2017 | SUNDANCE
    It is my belief, based on mounting evidence, a specific cast of characters -within the Mueller “Russia Election Interference” probe- were placed there to protect people behind the FBI’s initial false claims. Those claims formed the basis for the counterintelligence operation against 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump. According to reports, in August 2017 the Mueller team went around the Trump administration in their quest for documents, by directly demanding documents from the General Services Agency (GSA); the entity that hosted the communication network for the Trump transition team. According to reports, the content of 12 email accounts was handed over...

  • THE WASHINGTON TIMES Review of "The War on Guns:Arming yourself against gun control lies"

    The Washington Times ^ | August 29, 2016 | By: Joseph Greenlee
    In his new book, “The War on Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies,” John Lott methodically dismantles one popular gun-control myth after another. It has been said that a lie told often enough becomes the truth, and a similar phenomenon is overwhelming the gun debate in America. Oft-repeated untruths have formed common beliefs that often sway the debate about firearms. Gun-control advocates have learned that their exaggerated claims are likely to go unchecked by a largely sympathetic media, allowing them to control the narrative and shape public opinion. What is more, as Mr. Lott explains, billionaire elitists like George...

    Vox ^ | August 1st, 2015 | by Dara Lind and Javier Zarracina
    On Monday, I pointed out that a majority of Republican voters were to Donald Trump's right on immigration: Fully 63 percent of them wanted a plan to deport all unauthorized immigrants. On Thursday, Trump pretty much closed the gap, proposing to deport all 11 million unauthorized immigrants currently in the US and then let some select few return. From CNN (via Greg Sargent at the Washington Post): Trump said Wednesday in an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash that as president he would deport all undocumented immigrants and then allow the "good ones" to reenter the country through an "expedited process"...

    While Obama desperately tries to stick to his now crushed "Nobel peace prize winner" image, by not succumbing to an all-out land war in the one nation where his progressive "pacifism" brought him fame (and according to some, the presidency), namely Iraq, the rest of militant, "interventionist" US foreign policy is rapidly starting to resemble that waged by the most brutally rabid, neo-con Republican leader. Case in point an absolute stunner reported minutes ago by the WSJ, according to which the White House has decided to provide pickup trucks equipped with mounted machine guns and radios for calling in U.S....

    Business Insider ^ | 6/14/13 | Kim Bhasin
    Many big brands are intensely religious, even though consumers may not realize it. Most of the time, it comes from a devout founder passing his or her values on down the line. Some companies put their religion right out in the open, and are proud of their identities. Chick-fil-A is infamous for closing on Sundays, and In-N-Out puts Bible verses on its packaging. Interstate Batteries' mission statement states up front that it exists "to glorify God" while selling its products.

Cecelia and others were upset about potentially losing the long-running "Sesame Street" and other PBS shows. Cecelia's handwritten letter reads as follows: "I saw you on the debate last night and you said you would cut off PBS kids with Sesame Street on it. It was my favorite show on Earth. But now I'm 8 years old. When I grow up, I'm...

    July 16, 2012 (DETROIT) (WLS) -- A pastor got a big surprise during a weekend religious revival in Detroit. Someone stole the tires right off his car in a church parking lot. Pastor Dwayne Houston and his wife traveled from Dallas to attend a revival at a Detroit church. Just 30 minutes into the program, the pastor was told his tires and rims were missing. The thieves were so brazen they screwed the lug nuts back on the wheels before taking off with the brand new tires
