    The newly revealed exploits of spies who operated in underground tunnels The CIA dug a tunnel under the Kremlin and installed a hi-tech bugging system to eavesdrop on the Soviet Union's most senior figures, according to the former US intelligence officer who executed the plan. The device was put in by a US agent who had to wear a protective suit and was guided by satellite and sonar images of Moscow's underground. The bugging formed part of audacious operations to rescue a key defector, a KGB officer with responsibility for eavesdropping, and to alert Boris Yeltsin to the attempted coup...

  • McCarthy, GOP, Dems unite behind new China committee: ‘The era of trusting communist China is over’

    House Republicans and Democrats on Tuesday joined forces and voted overwhelmingly in favor of a new committee to examine U.S. strategic competition with China, after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy declared on the House floor that neither Republicans nor Democrats trust China anymore. "We spent decades passing policies that welcomed China into the global system," McCarthy said. "In return, China has exported oppression, aggression and anti-Americanism. Today, the power of its military and economy are growing at the expense of freedom and democracy worldwide." "It didn’t start under this administration, but the current administration has clearly made it worse," he continued....

    The latest ISIS refugee terror plot shows why we need a travel ban right now.. Shihab Ahmed Shihab Shihab, an Iraqi Muslim, entered the country using a tourist visa. Seven months later, just before his visa was about to expire, he asked for political asylum and planned to bring his entire family into the United States. A year later the Iraqi refugee was arrested as part of a plot to kill George W. Bush for ISIS. According to a confidential informant, Shihab was actually Abu Ahmed, who boasted of being related to Al-Baghdadi, the deceased Caliph of ISIS, and claimed...

    Bush accidentally called the invasion of Iraq "unjustified and brutal" in a speech about Ukraine. He also helped make the war in Ukraine inevitable and undermined efforts to avoid it.Pedro L. GonzalezMay 19The Bush Center / YouTubeFormer President George W. Bush suffered a Freudian slip while delivering a speech from Dallas condemning Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. The Russian president, said Bush, launched “a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq. I mean of Ukraine.” The audience fell silent as he realized the mistake. “Iraq too, anyway,” Bush muttered under his breath as awkward chuckles rippled through the room.Rarely does...

    Vladimir “Vovan” Kuznetsov and Alexei “Lexus” Stolyarov have spent more than a decade trolling politicians, celebrities, and other public figures around the world. Since 2015, they have called dozens of senior US and European officials, revealing their human side (if applicable), but also potentially significant information on policy matters. Pranksters Vovan and Lexus have struck again, this time targeting former US President George W. Bush. A tweet posted Tuesday on Vovan’s Twitter account features a preview mash-up of a conversation expected to be released in full later this week. “I wanted Ukraine into NATO”, Bush says in one excerpt. “I...

    Former President George W. Bush wants President Joe Biden to accelerate the inflow of wealth-shifting migrants into the U.S. economy, and he also wants Republicans to rally behind GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell. “The Biden Administration should exercise its unilateral power to … remove the arbitrary and harmful border policies under Title 42” that was imposed by President Donald Trump, said an op-ed in the El Paso Times by Laura Collins, the director of the George W. Bush Institute-SMU Economic Growth Initiative.

    Former President George W. Bush gave the maximum allowed political contributions to Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney and Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, two Republicans who supported impeaching former President Donald Trump over the January 6 Capitol riot. New disclosures filed with the Federal Election Commission said Bush gave Cheney $5,800 on October 28 for both the general and primary elections. On December 31, he also gave Murkowski $2,900 for her primary. The FEC sets limits on political contributions. Cheney, the daughter of Bush's own vice president, Dick Cheney, and an outspoken Trump critic, now serves as the lead Republican on the...

Rep. Kucinich, who is also a Fox News contributor, said the US should not be a policeman for the world and let Syria handle ISIS, and said that President Barack Obama was not as anti-war as he is portrayed. He also said President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney should “absolutely” be in jail for their role...

    Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer on Sunday revealed how the Biden family have profited from business with individuals “linked to the highest levels of Chinese intelligence.” Schweizer, the author of Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win, said Biden’s son Hunter, while the elder Biden was serving as both vice president and president, was engaged in deals with individuals tied to the highest levels of Chinese intelligence. He called the Biden family’s business dealings “unprecedented.” “One of the most startling things we uncovered is the simple fact that the Biden family, while he was vice president of...

    Megabucks real estate mogul Donald Trump, whose patented phrase,"You're Fired," has become the centerpiece of NBC's hit show "The Apprentice," said Sunday that he'd fire CBS News anchorman Dan Rather if he had the chance. "I would have fired him a long time ago," Trump told "Fox News Sunday." "I would have said, 'Dan, you're fired.'" The recently remarried gazillionaire went on to elaborate: "I'm not a big fan of Dan Rather. I don't want to be a fan of Dan Rather. I don't think he's good at the news. I don't think a lot of people think he's good...

    I hate vanities, but I thought that today and last night deserved recognition for being the one year anniversary of TankerKC and Buckhead blowing the CBS ANG document story out of the water. As we all know, this ultimately led to the disgracing of Dan Rather and rapidly advanced the already slow-moving demise of the MSM as a monopoly.

    In a televised interview with former CBSer Marvin Kalb, retired CBS anchor Dan Rather stated that his network will not allow him to continue to pursue the story of President Bush's Air Guard service. "Straight-up, no chaser, no," the exiled anchor said when asked if he would consider filing a story about it on the "60 Minutes" news magazine since he continues to believe in it. "CBS News doesn't want me to do that story. They wouldn't let me do that story," Rather said, declining to elaborate further. (See it in WMV or RealMedia video.) Rather also expressed suspicion about...

In her interview with ABC News chief investigative correspondent Brian Ross, to be broadcast Wednesday morning on "Good Morning America," Mapes says she is unrepentant about her role. "I don't think I committed bad journalism. I really don't," she says.... Mapes says Rather did not have "any obligation to resign" from his position, as CBS correspondent Mike Wallace recently...

    On Monday, January 25, 1988, 30 years ago tonight, Americans across the country saw with their own eyes an early example of the ugly liberal media attack machine. Dan Rather, the anchor of the CBS Evening News at the time, laid a trap and attempted to ambush then-Vice President George H.W. Bush on live TV. Of course, Rather’s goal was to embarrass the leading Republican contender for the 1988 Republican presidential nomination.  The segment was supposed to be a “candidate’s profile.” Instead, Rather screamed at the Vice President over the Iran-Contra scandal, making it the sole topic discussed. Visibly angry, he berated...

    Howlin, every single one of these memos to file is in a proportionally spaced font, probably Palatino or Times New Roman. In 1972 people used typewriters for this sort of thing, and typewriters used monospaced fonts. The use of proportionally spaced fonts did not come into common use for office memos until the introduction of laser printers, word processing software, and personal computers. They were not widespread until the mid to late 90's. Before then, you needed typesetting equipment, and that wasn't used for personal memos to file. Even the Wang systems that were dominant in the mid 80's used...
