Special Prosecutor Mueller Is a Political Hack

The New York Times characterizes special prosecutor Robert Mueller as being independent and fair:

Robert S. Mueller III managed in a dozen years as F.B.I. director to stay above the partisan fray, carefully cultivating a rare reputation for independence and fairness.

Let’s fact-check the Times …

Mueller presided over the incredibly flawed anthrax investigation.

The U.S. Government Accountability Office says the FBI’s investigation was “flawed and inaccurate”. The investigation was so bogus that a senator called for an “independent review and assessment of how the FBI handled its investigation in the anthrax case.”

The head of the FBI’s anthrax investigation says the whole thing was a sham. He says that the FBI higher-ups “greatly obstructed and impeded the investigation”, that there were “politically motivated communication embargos from FBI Headquarters”.

Moreover, the anthrax investigation head said that the FBI framed scientist Bruce Ivins. On July 6, 2006, the FBI’s anthrax investigation FBI Plaintiff provided a whistleblower report of mismanagement to the FBI’s Deputy Director pursuant to Title 5, United States Code, Section 2303, which noted:

Study: AC/DC’s ‘Highway To Hell’ More Theologically Accurate Than 96% Of Modern Worship Songs

U.S.—A recent survey performed by CCLI confirmed that AC/DC’s hard rock classic “Highway to Hell” is more theologically accurate than 96% of the songs that most worship bands play on any given Sunday.

The study examined over 800 songs and compared their theology to the Scriptures, and found that the Australian rock group’s 1979 classic was “significantly more accurate” than over 96% of them.

“While modern worship songs tend to contain little theology, an anemic view of sin, and a poor understanding of the work of the Holy Spirit, ‘Highway to Hell’ has a very biblical view of the doctrine of hell,” a CCLI rep said. “Lead singer Bon Scott had a clear understanding of man’s natural inclination toward sin and the inevitable judgment of God that follows.”


Civil Rights Commission Launches Investigation into Trump Admin

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights says it is launching a two-year “comprehensive assessment” into the Trump administration, in light of proposed budget cuts and staff eliminations that it says will cause the civil rights of people of color, the LGBT community, and other “marginalized” groups to be at risk.

According to a press release, the commission, which was created in 1957 as an independent agency that advises Congress and the president on civil rights matters, unanimously approved the investigation.

The press statement says the commission is especially concerned with what it perceives as the Department of Justice “minimizing its civil rights efforts” by placing ICE officers in courthouses and by not emphasizing the need for protection for the LGBT community or the disabled.

In the Department of Education, the commission says the proposed budget and staffing cuts in the Office for Civil Rights will affect those filing complaints based on sex, race, and other specially protected class categories.

Proposed staffing and budget cuts, and mergers of various offices in the Departments of Labor, Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services will all have a negative impact on the federal government’s job to monitor civil rights compliance efforts, says the commission.

Carrie Fisher's autopsy reveals cocktail of drugs, including cocaine, opiates and ecstasy

A Los Angeles County coroner’s report released on Monday revealed a mixture of drugs that were in actress Carrie Fisher’s system when she went into cardiac arrest on an L.A.-bound flight and later died.

Fisher’s toxicology review found evidence of cocaine, methadone, MDMA (better known as ecstasy), alcohol and opiates when she was rushed to Ronald Reagan UCLA Hospital on Dec. 23, a toxicology report showed.

The test results “suggests there was an exposure to heroin, but that the dose and time of exposure cannot be pinpointed.” Therefore we cannot establish the significance of heroin regarding the cause of death in this case.”

The tests revealed that the cocaine would have been consumed within the previous 72 hours, according to the autopsy.

Mark Levin calls it: Mueller is being used to impeach Trump

Thursday, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin was back on the radio. In hour two of his program, Levin gave some thoughts on the revelation that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating President Trump and claims that the president obstructed justice.

“There’s absolutely no reason to have a special counsel, but it’s something the Democrats want and something the Republicans capitulated to,” Levin said. “So now we have this roving prosecutor whose subject of investigation is whatever subject he decides to investigate.”

“Is that what constitutional government is about, ladies and gentlemen?” Levin asked.

Washington Redskins owner 'thrilled' by Supreme Court's trademark ruling

Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder said Monday he's "thrilled" about the Supreme Court decision striking down a federal trademark law banning names the government deems offensive.

The court ruling came in a separate case brought by Oregon-based, Asian-American band The Slants, which had been denied a trademark because its name was considered disparaging. The court ruled Monday that the law is unconstitutional.

The decision has direct implications for the Redskins’ dispute with the same office – the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which canceled numerous trademarks for the team back in 2014 over allegations the name is insulting to Native Americans.


Joy Ann Reid Attacks Steve Scalise While He's Hospitalized

Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise is still hospitalized and in serious condition but liberal MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid didn’t let that stop her from portraying Scalise as an extremist just three days after an angry left-winger shot Scalise and tried to assassinate dozens of Republican congressmen in Alexandria, Virginia on Wednesday.

Reid had NAACP board member Rev. William J. Barber II — a prominent liberal who spoke at at the Democratic National Convention last July — on her show Saturday morning and the two quickly set about attacking Scalise, who is physically unable to defend his record.

“There’s a whole country out there and a lot of people, at least in my Twitter timeline, and it’s a delicate thing, because everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping that he recovers, but Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race,” Reid claimed.

“He did come to leadership after some controversy over attending a white nationalist event, which he says he didn’t know what it was,” Reid said.

How the Deep State Built Its Field of Dreams

This week, we learned that former FBI Director James Comey will probably be a witness in any proceeding brought by his close friend Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Rod Rosenstein, a former Mueller staffer, appointed Mueller because Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who handed the oversight of this matter to his Deputy Rosenstein, had recused himself and that recusal was based on a misreading of the law by career Department of Justice attorneys. Sessions’s recusal, moreover, was engendered by illegal leaks. And the investigation by Mueller is being fanned by more of them.

James Comey

At the center of the narrative is James Comey, who, in a girlish recital, testified about a brief conversation he had with the President in which he was told General Flynn was a “good guy” and that the President hoped the FBI investigation would “let this go.”

Gingrich: Somebody probably going to jail over Russia investigation

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) told Fox News on Friday that "somebody" will likely go to jail following the FBI's investigation into Russian election meddling, but said it won't be President Trump.

"They're going to get somebody. I don't think they're going to get the president, but they're going to get somebody, and they're going to get him for something. And they're probably going to go to jail," Gingrich told Fox News's Sean Hannity.

The former Republican Speaker likened the mood at the FBI to an old Western film.

"This is like watching an old-fashioned Western movie. This is an Indian hunting party," Gingrich said. "They're out looking for a couple scalps, and they're not going to go home until they get some."


Riddle Me This 6-19-17

The answer to this riddle will be posted at 6:15pm

Americans Learning to Live with Treason

Pop the champagne corks, set off the fireworks, former FBI Director, James Comey nixed the "Russian collusion." In his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey cleared President Trump of all charges – no collusion, no conspiracy, no investigation, no there there.

Yay! It's over. The Russian conspiracy nonsense is finally debunked. Whew!

Does anyone else see the insanity here – that we celebrate when the president is cleared of phony charges, that we breathe a sigh of relief when the fired FBI director fails to establish an obstruction of justice charge?

Does anyone wonder why we anxiously watch each inane congressional hearing to see if the left gets the goods to pull off its coup, why we wake up each morning terrified that the insurgents have hit their mark, found something, anything they can use to depose a duly elected president?

We are watching, in real-time, a palace revolution, an overt effort to remove the president of the United States. Just as James Comey proudly admitted he leaked privileged communication to the press, so these insurgents brazenly brag that they want to harm the president, to impeach him, to overthrow our government. The American people seem shockingly oblivious to the looming danger.

Maybe its time we take back our Country with force
June 16, 2017, at 7:49 PM

That's what "they" want you to do. Then, oh boy, will they ever feel
justified for their crap and increase it. Even if force were successful,
it would only be a short-term victory. Anyone who was on the fence would be shoved into their line of thinking and be firm in their resolve to right what they would perceive as a great injustice. You can fight an idea with bullets.

Education, examples of a better way, etc. You cannot force someone to change their mind. They have to do it themselves willingly and believe it. Just look at the war on terror as an example of what I'm saying.

Those people believe in what they are doing. It doesn't matter that it's wrong, to them they are right and everyone else is wrong and an enemy. The ones who will never change their mind HAVE to be killed, there is no other way for them.

And then there is the danger of making them a martyr and then you have a recruitment tool for others to join to avenge his death.
Nothing is as simple as just shooting someone and thinking the problem is solved.

But, there should be consequences for their actions. Bold, SWIFT, and meaningful consequences. No ridiculous red lines, or any of the other Obama-era nonsense.

When our "elite leaders" do criminal crap and no real consequences occur for them, well that just emboldens their followers to do likewise. We need to first cut off the head of such discord and show those types of actions will not be tolerated and real, swift, MEANINGFUL punishment occurs to them.

No sweeping it under the rug, no political favors, no immunity, no excuses.

Only then will people open their eyes, see consequences and hopefully think for themselves and consider what would happen if they did this or did that.

El Salvador becomes first country to ban metals mining

El Salvador has banned all metals mining, saying it poses "a threat to the development and well-being of families." It becomes the first country to implement a blanket metals mining ban.

El Salvador's Congress on Wednesday approved a law banning all metals mining in order to protect the environment.

Some countries have banned strip mining and open-pit techniques, but the bill passed in El Salvador prohibits all underground, aboveground or artisanal mining for metals.

Supporters of the bill say the ban is necessary to protect water resources and reduce social tensions.

"Mining is not an appropriate way to reduce poverty and inequality in this country," said Ivan Morales, country director for the charity Oxfam in El Salvador.

"It would only exacerbate the social conflict and level of water contamination we already have."


Health care email security in ‘critical condition,’ experts warn

Fewer than a third of the country’s largest hospitals are using an industry standard designed to safeguard systems against cyber criminals’ most common attack vectors, according to a new report.

A review of 98 of the nation’s biggest public and for-profit health care facilities found that only 28 have deployed Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance, or DMARC — a protocol meant to protect email systems against phishing attacks, spam and malware — the Global Cyber Alliance warned in a report Thursday.

The health care industry’s failure to implement the protocol more than five years after its introduction has essentially placed the security of their email systems in “critical condition,” according to the alliance, an assemblage of cybersecurity proponents founded in 2015 by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, among other agencies.

“As cyber threats mount against health care providers, deploying DMARC is an essential solution to protecting their patients’ data privacy,” said Philip Reitinger, a former U.S. Department of Homeland Security cyber expert and the alliance’s president.

When used effectively, DMARC can significantly limit the amount of spam and phishing emails received by a domain, essentially narrowing hackers’ options for infiltrating an organization.


What Does Mistrial In Cosby's Case Mean In Court Of Public Opinion?

It's a depressing question to ask on a Father's Day weekend: What does it mean that a superstar comic and philanthropist once "America's Dad" just saw his prosecution on sexual assault charges end in a mistrial?

The trial against Bill Cosby ended Saturday, when a deadlocked jury was unable to reach a verdict on three counts of aggravated indecent assault after several days of deliberations. Until and unless the jurors speak, we won't know if just one or two of them declined to convict or if there was more widespread disagreement.

Prosecutors have already said they will retry Cosby and people on every side of the issue have used the outcome to argue their cause — from advocates for rape victims concerned that other victims won't be believed to those, including Cosby's wife Camille, who say the jurors resisting conviction stopped an unfair process out to ruin a successful man.

I think the verdict shows, once again, how difficult it is to convict a celebrity of serious criminal charges, especially in a case that boils down to taking one non-famous person's word over the celebrity's account.

Rascovar: Judge shouldn’t play Humpty-Dumpty with Md. universities

By Barry Rascovar

It could be a cringe-worry moment when U.S. District Judge Catherine Blake finally rules on the lawsuit by black state universities demanding sweeping changes in Maryland’s public higher education system that benefit only their own campuses.

In no way is Judge Blake qualified to disassemble Maryland’s well-regarded higher education network and then re-assemble the pieces in an entirely new way that miraculously makes historically black schools integrated and thriving learning institutions.

Indeed, if she tries, Blake could make a costly, destructive mess of one of the nation’s better public higher-education systems.


Now U.S. government threatens to take all your cash

New Senate bill empowers feds to seize everything you own

In the name of fighting terrorism financing, a new U.S. Senate bill threatens to force private corporations to monitor your financial activity and empowers government to seize all your assets if you fail to comply with the new law.

Even failure to fill out one form is license for the federal government to take everything you have.

Sponsored by Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Senate Bill 1241, “Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017,” was introduced last month and represents what some financial experts say is a new assault on cash and digital currencies.

Proponents say it’s needed to fight criminal and terrorist money laundering efforts, yet the banking institutions that will be given orders to look for evidence are themselves the primary architects of the schemes that make this activity profitable on a massive scale.

“If the bill becomes law, Americans would be subject to a whole host of government intrusions. One little slip-up would open a Pandora’s box of governmental inquiry into your financial life,” says Peter Reagan, a financial-market strategist at Birch Gold Group. “For example, failing to complete a single reporting form would result in the government being granted abilities to freeze and seize not just a portion, but the entirety, of your assets. The bill even goes so far as to include the contents of safety-deposit boxes.”


Sad.. Congressional staffers boo Trump at unity baseball game

So much for de-fanging the poisonous debate in Washington.

Dozens of congressional staffers erupted into boos, jeers and even vulgar gesticulations Thursday when President Trump appeared in a video at the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park.

Mr. Trump delivered a message of unity, but some fans in the stands weren’t having any of it.

One man shouted an expletive at the video screen as Mr. Trump was telling the fans: “We are showing the world we will not be intimidated by threats.”

The episode marred what had been a night celebrating those wounded in Wednesday’s murderous attack on GOP players practicing for the game.

When both teams went to second base — the symbolic spot where Rep. Steve Scalise was wounded in the attack at the Alexandria practice field — to kneel and pray, some mocked the prayer, too. The fans appeared to be Democratic staffers, having booed the announcement of several members of the GOP lineup.


Newt: 'This Whole Thing Stinks'

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Friday that "this whole thing stinks" regarding the Russia investigation, simply because special counsel Robert Mueller and former FBI Director James Comey are friends.

"Under the Justice Department's rules, Mueller has his own obligation to recuse himself with anything involving Comey," Gingrich, the former Republican Georgia congressman, told Sean Hannity on Fox News. "This makes you wonder why would you pick a close friend that involves Comey?

"This whole thing stinks."

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein named Mueller to head the Russia probe a week after Comey's notes about his private conversations with President Donald Trump were leaked by a friend at the Columbia Law School to The New York Times.

Mueller also once headed the FBI.

‘Julius Caesar’ interrupted again by pro-Trump protesters

Once more unto the breach!

The Public Theater’s anti-Trump rendition of “Julius Caesar” was interrupted yet again on Sunday — with two protesters storming the stage this time, including one who shouted: “Liberal hate kills!”

Javanni Valle, 26, of Brooklyn, and Salvatore Cipolla, 28, of Oceanside, LI, were arrested and charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct following their Sunday evening stunt at Shakespeare in the Park.

The incident came during the show’s final performance in Central Park — and just two days after a similar protest unfolded at the outside venue.


Watch: Alex Marlow Talks Media, Free Speech, and Rhetoric with Bill Maher

On Friday’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO, host and comedian Bill Maher interviewed Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow.

The two discussed Breitbart’s coverage, the media, Russia, free speech, the shooting at a congressional baseball practice, and political rhetoric.

Marlow said that Breitbart is “not going to cover the exact same stories the exact same way as all the other outlets. We’ll leave that to the rest of the establishment press. We’re very much anti-establishment, trying to highlight stories that we don’t think get their fair day.”

After the discussion turned to Russia, Marlow stated that there was no evidence of collusion or obstruction of justice, adding, “You guys continue to talk about this story in the establishment press instead of talking about the president’s agenda, which is by design. Because you guys won’t apologize if it turns out there’s nothing, no one will come out on MSNBC, they’ll just move on to the next hysteria, and that’s a huge advantage for people like me who are covering the rest of the news.”

Maher spoke of corporations pulling ads from people who engage in speech they do not like. Marlow said, “This really started–in my view–in the modern era, with Breitbart–where a lot of people are boycotting Breitbart. And what they’re doing is, there’s a lot of anonymous people online, cowardly people. We don’t know who’s funding them. We don’t know who they are, who are putting out all of this mis-information about who we are and what we stand for, and they’re trying to round up corporations to boycott us. And so, what’s happened is that corporations are now deciding what’s free and fair speech, who can make a living.."

Father of murdered Germantown teen slams ‘lie’ about son

WASHINGTON — The father of one of two murdered Germantown teens railed against the notion that his son’s fatal shooting was in retaliation for a drug-related December robbery Sunday, calling the suggestion a “lie.”

“He is such a sweet person,” Adi Najjar, father of slain 17-year-old Shadi Adi Najjar, told WTOP. “Loving, lovable person. He would never try to harm anybody.”

Najjar said that he and his wife went to great pains to ensure that their son had everything he needed — which is why he doesn’t believe the idea that Shadi would have been involved in a robbery.

“I’m inquiring about CNN’s bias and our return on investment,” shareholder David Almasi reportedly told Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes during Thursday’s annual shareholders meeting. “Half the American public—which includes potential and current CNN viewers—voted for Trump last November and supports his agenda. CNN acts as if it is part of the anti-Trump resistance.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “about half of the 300 people” at the annual shareholders meeting “applauded” Almasi while “several others later approached” him to “thank him for his questions.”

Almasi reportedly “cited data from the Media Research Center indicating that among the CNN panelists dissecting the May 9 firing of FBI director James Comey, 96 were anti-Trump and seven were pro-Trump.”

Time Warner is CNN’s parent company, and Bewkes also defended Time Warner’s support of the Trump assassination play being staged by The Public Theatre in New York.

The number of violent Islamist extremists in Sweden has soared from 200 in 2010 to “thousands”, intelligence agency Sapo said Friday, while noting that only a handful were deemed able to carry out a terror attack.

“This is the ‘new normal’ … It is a historic challenge that extremist circles are growing,” he said.

He stressed, however, that only a few of the “thousands” had both the intention and ability to carry out a terror attack.

A 2010 Sapo report estimated the number of violent Islamist extremists in the Scandinavian country at 200.
