    The three individuals charged with running brothels in Massachusetts and Washington, D.C., that allegedly hosted high-profile clientele, including political and military leaders, brought in over a million dollars running the operation, a top federal investigator on the case said Wednesday. According to an affidavit submitted to the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts by the Department of Homeland Security, the alleged ringleaders of the operation, James Lee of California, along with Han Lee and Junmyung Lee of Massachusetts, made the chunk of change while running the service out of high-end apartments in Massachusetts and the Washington, D.C., suburbs...

    (Washington, DC) — The following is a statement from Nancy Altman, President of Social Security Works, in response to Donald Trump demanding that the next coronavirus relief package include a cut in the payroll tax, Social Security’s dedicated revenue: “The coronavirus pandemic is raging across America. Essential workers are in desperate need of tests and personal protective equipment (PPE). Millions of Americans are at risk of eviction. Over 57,000 nursing home residents and workers are dead. Hospitals are in danger of becoming overwhelmed. Donald Trump is doing nothing to address any of this. Instead, he’s stated his intentions to hold...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama repeatedly has stated there’s "zero chance" she would run for president in 2020 -- but a new poll in New Hampshire, the state holding the first primary in the race for the White House, suggested that if Obama changed her mind, she would enter the race as the front-runner. The Boston Herald-Franklin Pierce University survey, released on Monday, indicated a three-way tie for the top spot in New Hampshire -- with Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 25 percent support, former Vice President Joe Biden at 24 percent, and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont at 22 percent....

    So Sessions recuses himself for having an innocuous and indirect contact with a Russian. But Rosenstein is hired to be his number two and oversee Mueller based on a FISA application that he signed knowing it was BS and was the basis for Trump-Russia collusion nonsense Mueller was investigating. Rosenstein should be sent to jail for a long, long, time.

    The late Sen. Ted Kennedy arranged to "rent" a brothel for a night while on a visit to Chile and other Latin American countries decades ago, according to a 1961 State Department memo obtained and published by the watchdog group Judicial Watch. Judicial Watch released several documents said to be from Kennedy's FBI file. The group said it obtained a cleaner copy of the State Department memo after a mostly redacted version was made public earlier. The Dec. 28, 1961, memo described a tour of several Latin American countries Kennedy made while he was an assistant prosecutor with Suffolk County,...

    financial sense online ^ | January 27, 2006 | Chris Martenson
    In a shocking development, the Treasury Department website is openly stating that as of January 24, 2006 our national debt stood at $8,185.3 billion and on January 26th at $8,190.5 billion. Yet the US national debt ‘ceiling’, the maximum amount of debt the US government may hold at any one time, stands at $8,184 billion – a full $5.5 billion less. Although called upon by John Snow, Congress has not yet passed an expansion of the debt ceiling and so the US government is now operating in technical default. You may recall that when last the debt ceiling was...

    I cannot add much to the lengthy expositions on the numerous ways Arlen Specter has worked to undermine conservatism; the dangers associated with adding the words “Judiciary Chair” to the man’s name; or the eloquent calls to action.But I can add this:Quickly-gelling conventional wisdom suggests – and might be right – that social conservatives are why the President will be in office until early 2009; why we managed to yank five seats in the Senate from under Democrat noses; why Tom Daschle will be using the word “regret” a tad differently for the next few decades; and why our...
