    Local authorities were warned two and a half months prior to the massacre in a Florida high school that accused shooter Nikolas Cruz had “used a gun against people before,” according to a disturbing new report. The chilling details on Cruz’s troubled past were revealed in 911 records obtained by CNN.

    Washington Examiner ^ | Feb. 6, 2018
    An attorney selected to advise the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court says he might have recommended against surveilling former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. But he was never asked for an opinion. John Cline was one of the first people designated by the shadowy court’s judges as eligible to advise them on privacy and other intelligence collection issues, but he was not consulted on the Page case — or any other — during his two years on the amici curiae roster. Cline served as an on-call expert alongside five others when the FBI and Justice Department sought a warrant to spy...

    While the general public awaits the declassification and release of the now-infamous four-page memo written by House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes, R-Calif., those who have read it are remarking with astonishment at the depths to which our federal government (including and especially persons in law enforcement and national security) has sunk. Politicians and pundits alike are saying that this is "bigger than Watergate." And plenty of people are talking about the roles played in the emerging scandal by FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, Independent Counsel (and former FBI firector) Robert Mueller, Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former...

    The married governor of Missouri was accused in a news report Wednesday of using a half-naked, S&M photo to pressure a woman he was cheating with into keeping quiet about the affair. Hours after the report on local KMOV Gov. Eric Greitens and wife Sheena issued a statement admitting to an extramarital fling, saying “Eric took responsibility and we dealt with this together honestly and privately.” The statement did not address a bombshell claim that he squeezed the woman with the photo, quoting her ex-husband saying the fling happened in March 2015 and that the future governor wanted to keep...

    “They’ve been burned. They’ve been hammered. They’ve been bludgeoned,” George Washington University law professor Miriam Galston explains to the Washington Post. “They’re trying to survive.” In this heartbreaking discussion during this special time of year, the “they” are the poor, long-suffering folks . . . at the Internal Revenue Service. It is a terrible, too-long-ignored scandal, which should tear at the heartstrings of every American. “Years of conservative attacks on the Internal Revenue Service have greatly diminished the ability of agency regulators to oversee political activity by charities and other nonprofits . . .” posits the recently published Post analysis....

Speaking to Variety, the women described predatory incidents involving Hoffman that fit into a pattern of alleged behavior that has emerged in the wake of previous sexual-misconduct claims against...

    The White House said on Friday that it was the Obama administration that authorized former national security adviser Michael Flynn's contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during President Trump's transition, according to CNN. Flynn pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Kislyak in the month before Trump took office, the first current or former Trump White House official brought down by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's election meddling. Court records indicate that his communications with Kislyak were directed by a Trump transition official, with multiple news outlets reporting that official was Trump's...

    Hollywood Chickenhawk Child Recruitment Strategy Unmasked (This article in PDF: Chickenhawk Child Recruitment Strategy Unmasked) This is the third in a series of articles on the unfolding pederasty scandal in Hollywood.

This article will expose how these same conspirators are even now orchestrating a new cover-up. It will also explain how “gay” recruitment of children through “grooming”” is not only common in the “gay”...

    Sen. Al Franken apologized on Thursday amid allegations that the Minnesota Democrat had groped women at campaign events— admitting that he “crossed a line” in some instances when embracing constituents. The Minnesota Democrat, accused by four women of creepily touching them, issued his most detailed statement yet in explaining how he made such unwanted contact. “I’ve met tens of thousands of people and taken thousands of photographs, often in crowded and chaotic situations. I’m a warm person; I hug people,” according to Franken. “I’ve learned from recent stories that in some of those encounters, I crossed a line for some...

Leeann Tweeden, a radio host, wrote last week that Franken had kissed and groped her without her consent during a 2006 USO tour. On Monday, Lindsay Menz accused Franken of groping her at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010.

  • Woman says Franken inappropriately touched her in 2010 (2nd accuser)

    A woman says Sen. Al Franken inappropriately touched her in 2010, telling CNN that he grabbed her buttocks while taking a photo at the Minnesota State Fair. It is the first allegation of improper touching by Franken, who is a Democrat, while he was in office. It comes just days after Leeann Tweeden, a local radio news anchor in California, said that Franken forcibly kissed and groped her in 2006, when Franken was a comedian. Franken has since issued an apology to Tweeden and faces a potential investigation by the Senate Ethics Committee.
