    Special counsel John Durham has issued trial subpoenas for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Fusion GPS, and Perkins Coie as he continues to prosecute his findings as special counsel, from which he charged cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussmann, who in 2016 represented the Clinton campaign, with lying to the FBI. Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, the DNC, Washington-based private intelligence firm Fusion GPS, and law firm Perkins Coie, Sussmann’s former employer, meanwhile, are trying to fend off Durham’s efforts to compel them to hand over previously withheld documents. The campaign and Sussmann’s lawyers argue that attorney-client privilege should...

    Nation And State ^ | 4-21-2022 | Jeff Carlson and Hans Mahncke via The Epoch Times
    In a coordinated legal action between a number of Hillary Clinton operatives and associates, almost two dozen separate documents were simultaneously filed on April 19 in special counsel John Durham’s case against former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann. This sudden flurry of mass filings included responses from former Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta, campaign manager Robby Mook, Clinton campaign lead lawyer Marc Elias, contractors Fusion GPS, the Clinton campaign itself, and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). The trigger for the flurry of filings was a request by Durham to unseal a number of emails involving the parties. The emails are...

  • Furious Irish parents slam 'horrendous' Peppa Pig Goes to Ireland

    People took to Twitter this week to lambast Peppa Pig: Peppa Goes to Ireland after discovering it features no Irish characters and stereotypes such as Peppa's family purchasing fiddles and attending an Irish-dancing festival. The criticism came after one parent, Irish author Kevin Power, tweeted a photo of the book on Monday and wrote: 'I read this to my daughter at bedtime. 'It features no Irish characters, just English characters enjoying themselves in Ireland, thus reinscribing 800 years of colonialism. Might call Liveline (an Irish radio show) about it tomorrow.' He later clarified that he was joking, but parents rushed...

    The State of Indiana can no longer afford to have the civically ignorant elect the civically ignorant. It is time for every Indiana resident and candidate for public office to demonstrate a basic knowledge of civics before they run for public office or vote. Just as every driver is required to have a basic knowledge and competence in driving before they are allowed to drive on public roads, voters should be required to demonstrate a basic knowledge and competence in honoring and supporting the constitutional republic in which they participate. To this end, the undersigned request legislation to require the...

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Ky.) said late Tuesday that former White House strategist Steve Bannon’s refusal to cooperate with the House committee investigating the Capitol riot suggests President Trump was "personally involved in the planning and execution of January 6th." "Based on the committee’s investigation, it appears that Mr. Bannon had substantial advance knowledge of the plans for January 6th and likely had an important role in formulating those plans. Mr. Bannon was in the war room at the Willard on January 6th. He also appears to have detailed knowledge regarding the president’s efforts to sell millions of Americans the fraud...

    A steel manufacturing company has been ordered to forfeit $6 million — a near-financial death sentence — after admitting it had run a pipeline for “dozens” of illegal immigrants from Mexico to come and work for it, undercutting competitors. All Steel Carports Inc. told the court in a sentencing memo that owner Ignacio Chavez, who came to the U.S illegally himself before winning legal residency in 2009, didn’t consider hiring illegal immigrants to be a big deal. “In his culture laws are there but few respect them,” the company’s lawyers wrote. ...The Biden administration cut him a break, dropping human...

"QUESTION: How is this not a hate crime? ANSWER: Because "woke privilege" means a white woman can wear a gorilla mask and attack a black man without fear of being called a racist.

    Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday blasted the “leftist” Jan 6. House Select Committee following its sweeping records request which included call logs from Trump and several former members of his administration. Trump said the committee has “further exposed itself as a partisan sham and waste of taxpayer dollars,” calling the request “timed” in order to distract Americans from “historic and global catastrophes brought on by the failures of Joe Biden and the Democrats.” “Unfortunately, this partisan exercise is being performed at the expense of long-standing legal principles of privilege,” Trump said in an emailed statement.

    **SNIP** Ed Buck, a one-time celebrated and sought-after donor to the Democratic candidates and elected officials in California, faces nine felonies, including two counts of distribution of controlled substances resulting in death. Black death, to be exact. One count for the 2017 death of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore and one for the death of 55-year-old Timothy Dean in 2019. Your garden variety middle-aged white gay man, Ed Buck, was privileged and entitled with the “complexion for protection.” A West Hollywood City Hall gadfly with a checkbook he wasn’t afraid to use, aside from giving the max allowed to political candidates, Buck’s...

    "I want to wait and watch."This is a peculiar response I receive from my friends and some family members in the United States when I ask them about their thoughts on COVID-19 vaccination. This is a peculiar response for a couple of reasons: COVID-19 vaccines are exceptionally effective, are now readily available and are the best way to end the pandemic and return to normalcy.This skeptical response is reflective of broader trends in the United States: An NPR/Marist poll this spring revealed that up to one-fourth of the national population would decline to get vaccinated even when offered.This is also...

No one could blame anyone for doing anything they can to come to this land of freedom and opportunity.Could America be better? Of course. Am I dissatisfied with the politicians in Washington? Of course. Are there...

    Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg was caught on video faking his environmentally-friendly commute to work this week. The meme he was trying to communicate is that he cares so much about the environment that he bicycles to work every day. The official video of this shows him arriving at his office peddling happily along the street. The unofficial video captured by a wary observer showed Buttigieg hopping on a bicycle a few blocks from his office building after having unloaded the bike from a gas-guzzling, armor-plated SUV that had driven him most of the way. Buttigieg brushed aside criticism of...
