  • FBI Knew Of Allegations Against Ghislaine Maxwell As Early As 1996, Accuser Says. It Took 24 Years To Arrest Her

    The FBI knew about allegations against convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and his ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell at least as early as 2006, possibly as early as 1996, an Epstein accuser says. Maxwell was not arrested until Thursday after a grand jury indicted the British socialite and heiress on charges of conspiracy to entice minors to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors to these illegal sex acts, transportation of a minor to engage in illegal sex acts, and perjury. Painter Maria Farmer alleges that she and her sister were sexually abused by Epstein and Maxwell in 1996 when...

    Senators aim to limit Trump's ability to remove troops from Germany BY JORDAIN CARNEY - 06/29/20 03:19 PM EDT A bipartisan group of senators is trying to place limits on President Trump's ability to remove troops from Germany unless the administration is able to meet a slew of requirements. The proposal, spearheaded by Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), would prohibit the administration from reducing the number of active-duty troops in Germany below 34,500 unless the Pentagon can certify to Congress that it is in the national security interest of the United States and would not negatively undermine European alliances or NATO....

    High school-educated, working-class parents aren’t capable of overseeing their own child’s education, a state lawmaker said last week. New Hampshire state Sen. Jeanne Dietsch, D-Peterborough, made the comment at a committee hearing last Tuesday while promoting a bill that would stop the state Board of Education from creating a new way of allocating high school graduation credits. “This idea of parental choice, that’s great if the parent is well-educated. There are some families that’s perfect for. But to make it available to everyone? No. I think you’re asking for a huge amount of trouble,” Dietsch said. Dietsch’s remarks represent a...

Jeanne Dietsch (D-Peterborough) made during a House Education Committee hearing on Tuesday. Dietsch was speaking on behalf of a Senate bill that would repeal a law allowing the state Board of Education to create an alternative program for granting graduation credits, which became Learn Everywhere. “This idea of parental choice, that’s great if the parent is well-educated.

    A Democratic politician in New Hampshire changed the Pledge of Allegiance during a recent meeting, saying “and justice for some” rather than “justice for all.” As reported by WMUR, Executive Councilor Debora Pignatelli was lambasted by Republicans when she made the change during a council meeting last week. . . . Other councilors and Gov. Chris Sununu said the Pledge correctly during a Wednesday meeting, but Pignatelli was heard saying at the end of it, “…with liberty and justice for some.” “I don’t say it all the time, but it has been clear to me since this coronavirus has started...

    HANOVER — Dartmouth College officials declined Wednesday to rule out layoffs and furloughs for some of its 3,900 employees, including non-tenured faculty, as the institution faces millions of dollars in projected losses over its spring and summer terms. Layoffs are a “part of a tool kit” that administrators need access to, but are seen as a last resort to stabilize the college’s financial situation past June 30, Executive Vice President Rick Mills said during a meeting with Valley News editors and reporters. “They are a tool that we deploy later and with more reluctance than most of these other tools...

    New Hampshire state Rep. Richard Komi, D-Manchester, has resigned amid backlash over his apparent suggestion that Tara Reade was "looking for attention" and would have had to have "cooperated" with former Vice President Joe Biden's attempt to assault her if her allegation were true. "Judged by the position of the female vagina, it will not be easy for anyone to just put their finger into the vagina unless their [sic] is some cooperation from the female herself. That is why I believe Tara Reade's allegations [sic] is false. She is looking for attention," Komi said on Friday in a now-deleted tweet. Sara Gonzales New...

    Roughly 28 million mail-in ballots have gone missing across the country over the last 10 years based on a report citing government figures. ... Putting the election in the hands of the United States Postal Service would be a catastrophe,” PILF President J. Christian Adams said in a statement. “Over the recent decade, there were 28 million missing and misdirected ballots. These represent 28 million opportunities for someone to cheat. Absentee ballot fraud is the most common; the most expensive to investigate; and can never be reversed after an election. The status quo was already bad for mail balloting. The...

    On March 9, 2020, the Idaho Senate State Affairs Committee approved House Bill H440, a measure outlawing race-based affirmative action in state agencies, state contracting, and public education. The bill is currently on Idaho’s full senate floor for amendments. Once amended and signed by Governor Brad Little into law, H440 will make the Gem State the ninth to adopt a statewide ban on affirmative action. The other eight states are: California, Washington, Florida, Michigan, Nebraska, Arizona, New Hampshire, and Oklahoma. In most cases, measures to ban racial discrimination and preferential treatment were passed by popular votes on the ballot. At...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) turned down repeated requests from Bernie SandersÂ’ presidential campaign to appear at events promoting the Vermont senatorÂ’s candidacy in recent weeks, according to three people familiar with the discussions. After the Iowa caucuses, Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir asked Ocasio-Cortez to stump for Sanders in New Hampshire, according to the sources. The campaign prepared a model schedule to highlight the kind of popular support she would expect if she attended, one of the people familiar with the talks said. Ocasio-Cortez resisted the entreaties until a few days before the primary on Feb. 12. She ultimately spoke...

    DEMOCRATIC HOUSE UPSET. Democrat Kathleen Martins scored an upset victory Tuesday in a New Hampshire House special election in Hooksett. In the first state election since the New Hampshire primary, the self-described educator defeated Republican Elliot “Alu” Axelman, a member of the Hooksett Budget Committee and a supporter of the Free State Project, in the heavily Republican town to succeed the late Rep. Dick Marple, who died in December. The final unofficial vote count was 1,000 for Martins and 961 for Axelman.

    Police Chief Richard Lee said he was forced to leave Town Hall in his underwear Tuesday after the board of selectmen voted to dissolve the town’s one-man police department. “I was told that I had to turn over the keys to the cruiser and my uniform immediately. I had no other means of transportation, as the cruiser is a take-home vehicle, and I have no spare clothes in the office, so I did as ordered,” Lee said Wednesday. Lee said he started walking toward his home in Newport during a snowstorm wearing boots, a hat and his underwear, before his...

    Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate and voting rights advocate Stacey Abrams hit the nail on the head, telling voters not to let two small, virtually all-white states tell them whom to pick as the Democratic presidential nominee: ‘We need a more representative sample’ — Exclusive: @staceyabrams believes that our Iowa and New Hampshire first primary system is silencing voters of color She makes the logical case that only 65 delegates have been selected (distributed rather evenly among several candidates) — out of a grand total of 1,991 who would need to be pledged to win the nomination on the first ballot....

    The Hill ^ | February 16, 2020 | J. T. Young
    With their center’s collapse, Democrats’ only hope of reconstituting it is by redefining the center. As the Democratic primary race moves leftward, the definitions of their candidates are moving right. It resembles a play in which we are expected to accept that the same actors have become different characters simply because of a costume change. When the 2020 Democratic field was taking shape a year ago, its spread was straightforward. Former Vice President Joe Biden was the establishment anchor, in a center-left, front-runner position. A couple of candidates were to his right – Montana Gov. Steve Bullock and former Rep....

    If you had told me three years ago that I would ever attend a Donald Trump rally, I would have laughed and assured you that was never going to happen. Heck, if you had told me I would do it three months ago, I probably would have done the same thing. So, how did I find myself among 11,000-plus Trump supporters in Manchester, New Hampshire? Believe it or not, it all started with knitting. But when I witnessed the amount of hate coming from the left in this small, niche knitting community, I started to question everything. I started making...

    .....So I headed over an hour and a half before the doors were scheduled to open (which was 4 hours before Trump was set to take the stage) and the line already stretched a mile away from the entrance to the arena. As I waited, I chatted with the folks around me. And contrary to all the fears expressed, they were so nice! I was not harassed or intimidated and was never in fear of my safety even for a moment. These were average everyday people. They were veterans, school teachers, and small business owners and they had come from...
