    When Russian President Vladimir Putin granted citizenship to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden on Monday, the news revived a long-simmering debate about the propriety of his revelations of U.S. government secrets. At the same time, it prompted reiterations of a widely-embraced falsehood: that Snowden “fled to Russia.”The disinformation-trafficking wasn’t limited to random people on social media. Among others, The New York Times, The Guardian, ABC, Christian Science Monitor and Canada’s CBC all asserted in the past week that Snowden “fled to Russia” in 2013 after revealing that the United States government had created a mass surveillance regime targeting its own citizens,...

    A third retired command sergeant major is speaking out against Gov. Tim Walz, saying he “let his soldiers down” by avoiding a deployment to Iraq in 2005 before running for Congress. Doug Julin worked his way up to division command sergeant major (CSM) before he retired from the Minnesota National Guard in 2012 after serving 35 years. “This was a backdoor deal,” Julin said of Walz not going on the mission. Julin is the third retired CSM to speak with Alpha News this month about a story that all three say deserves more attention. Republican gubernatorial candidate Dr. Scott Jensen...

    VIDEOStolen Valor Serial Fabulist Brian Williams signed off forever from his MSNBC exile. Of course in all the tributes to himself was nary a reference as to why he was leaving a low rated late night MSNBC show rather than from his NBC News anchor gig. Also interesting was that in all the personal tributes to Williams, notably missing was Lester Holt who owes Brian his current NBC Nightly News anchor slot due to Williams being forced to vacate it thanks to his serial lying. Also note that Brian signed off by taking an ominous shot at the MAGA "deplorables"...

    WASHINGTON — Emboldened by President Donald Trump’s campaign platform of law and order, militia groups have bolstered their strength before Election Day by attracting military veterans who bring weapons and tactical skills viewed as important to the organizations. The role of veterans in the newly proliferating militia groups — which sometimes are steeped in racism and other times steeped simply in anti-government zealotry — has increased over the last decade, said a dozen experts on law enforcement, domestic terrorism and extremist groups.

    Yesterday a group of us discussed our prior military experiences, we had never met before and it was informal employment seminar for my business. I exclusively hire vets and being one, I know we are all capable of embellishing our careers with war stories. Amazingly, not one guy claimed to be a SEAL or Green Beret but, one woman in the group claimed that she was a former USAF Enlisted Tactical Air Controller. It just didn't smell right and I asked about her training. She said Keesler AFB. She couldn't "find" her DD 214. I told her I could go...

    (CNN)Let's call it the Pelosi Pause. There are no written rules governing the timetable for delivery of the House decision impeaching Donald Trump to the Senate, only custom. But then there were no written rules governing the timetable for a Senate decision on Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland, only custom. If Speaker Nancy Pelosi follows Senator Mitch McConnell's playbook, Donald Trump will never stand trial in the Senate.

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) stated that he thinks up to ten Senate Republicans will vote to convict President Trump, but that there could be “unpredicted evidence” and the number of GOP defections could increase. Blumenthal said, “I would give the high end probably five to ten. I think that’s a realistic number. But, and I want to emphasize the but, we need to keep in mind what’s unpredictable here. Remember the Watergate case, where the Nixon tapes emerged, seemingly by chance…and that was the end of his presidency. So, never underestimate the possibility of...

    HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) - U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal is taking action after President Donald Trump's recent comments about welcoming campaign dirt on opponents from a foreign government. During an exclusive interview with ABC's George Stephanopolous, the president insisted that doing so was not an act of interference in our election but information. "I think I'd take it. If I thought there was something wrong, I'd go maybe to the FBI. When you go and talk, honestly, to congressman, they all do it, they always have, and that's the way it is. It's called oppo research," said Trump. Members of both...

    Senate Democrats were fully unleashed in their grilling of Attorney General William Barr on Wednesday, accusing the top Department of Justice official of bungling the release of the Mueller report in an attempt to defend President Trump. During the four-hour hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Democrats seized on the explosive revelation that special counsel Robert Mueller had criticized Barr’s summary of his report in writing. Some suggested he was no longer fit to serve as attorney general. “I think history will judge you harshly, and maybe a bit unfairly,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) told Barr. “You seem to have...

    Despite Special Counsel Robert Mueller finding no evidence of Russian collusion by the Trump campaign in his now-closed investigation, members of Connecticut’s all-Democrat congressional delegation say they are not fully convinced that there was no wrongdoing by the president. Sen. Richard Blumenthal is not backing away from his declaration on MSNBC Thursday that “there are indictments in this president’s future” — even though Mueller recommended no further indictments as part of his 22-month probe. The vociferous Trump critic and frequent target of the president’s Twitter barbs called on the Justice Department Sunday to release the full Mueller report, saying that...
