Bad intel from Russia influenced Comey´s
Clinton announcement: report

Posted By: Lalo- 5/24/2017 7:20:43 PM     Post Reply
Former FBI Director James Comey’s controversial decision to detail the FBI’s findings in the Hillary Clinton email case without Justice Department input was influenced by a dubious Russian document that the FBI now considers to be bad intelligence, The Washington Post reported Wednesday. The secret document, which purported to be a piece of Russian intelligence, claimed that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch had privately assured someone in the Clinton campaign that the investigation into Clinton’s handling of classified information would go nowhere. But according to people familiar with the matter, by August the FBI had come to believe the document

Manchester Bomber, Salman Abedi,
Linked to Libyan ISIS – “Libyan Dawn”…

The Manchester Bomber is one of Hillary Clinton’s Libyan “Rebels” Islamic State fighters landed in Libya back in November of 2014, and began work establishing training camps in the Libyan city of Derna before launching a terror offensive which included an attack on a Libyan hotel, attacks on oil field workers, and the execution of 21 Copts in a graphic video which made international headlines. In early through mid-2015 several extremist jihadist elements in Libya swore allegiance to Bakar al-Baghdadi. A man named Abdelhakim Belhadj took the position as head of ISIS in Libya. Abdelhakim Belhadj was critical in forming “Libya Dawn”,

Mosque of Manchester Bomber
Refuses to Take Responsibility

Now that Salman Abedi has been named as the suicide bomber who blew up dozens of children in Manchester, today was the time for the elders of his mosque in Didsbury to speak. They were resolute and clearly angry, but as the press statement was read, it became depressingly clear what they were angry about: Islamophobia and the media. The statement started with a firm insistence that this statement would be the only one and that there would be no questions. Then, the usual opening remarks about how the bomber had basically embarrassed Islam by his actions, and a half-hearted

Michael Morell, the former acting director of the CIA under President Obama, said that the Obama administration “did nothing” to stop Russian interference in the presidential campaign. Morell, who left the CIA in 2013 and supported Hillary Clinton for president last year, appeared on “CBS This Morning” to discuss testimony that former CIA Director John Brennan gave in a House Intelligence Committee hearing on Tuesday. Brennan revealed for the first time that he was so concerned about Russia’s attempts to meddle in the election that he contacted Alexander Bortnikov, Russia’s FSB chief, on Aug. 4 to warn him against continuing its

Former CIA Official Phil Mudd said Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) should "have his a** kicked" for his questioning of former CIA Director John Brennan. In a House hearing, Gowdy pressed Brennan on whether he has seen any evidence of collusion or a connection between President Trump and Russian actors. "I don´t do evidence," Brennan replied. Gowdy pressed again, and Brennan responded that he is "aware of" intelligence that revealed contact between Russians and Americans involved in the Trump campaign Mudd told CNN´s Chris Cuomo that Gowdy does not understand the difference between intelligence and evidence.

Talk to anyone who has tried to run a business and ask them how hard it is. I can speak from experience when I tell you that it isn´t easy. Long hours, sleepless nights, and concerns you never even thought about as an employee are the norm. Add in the fact that you get paid last, which can mean some very lean times, and the challenges of owning a business become rather obvious. Now, you may also have to consider the idea that Social Justice Warriors think you have the wrong DNA for your line of work, because they´re horrible.

U.S. President Donald Trump told his Philippine counterpart that Washington has sent two nuclear submarines to waters off the Korean peninsula, the New York Times said, comments likely to raise questions about his handling of sensitive information. Trump has said "a major, major conflict" with North Korea is possible because of its nuclear and missile programs and that all options are on the table but that he wants to resolve the crisis diplomatically. North Korea has vowed to develop a missile mounted with a nuclear warhead that can strike the mainland United States, saying the program is necessary to counter

Hundreds of women showed up for free gun training in Detroit, Mich., on Sunday. The event, which has been held annually for the last six years, saw its best turnout yet. Organizers said about 700 women expressed interest in the training and around 600 attended. The goal, they said, was helping women learn how to protect themselves. "We teach women how to shoot and discharge a firearm, and a personal protection strategy," Rick Ector, the founder of Legally Armed in Detroit and creator of the event, told the Detroit Free Press.

CBO Says GOP Health Plan

Republicans’ revised plan to repeal and replace parts of the Affordable Care Act would shrink the U.S. budget deficit by $119 billion, $32 billion less than an earlier version of the legislation, according to the Congressional Budget Office. (graphic)About 23 million people are expected to lose their health-care coverage by 2026 under the bill which was passed by House Republicans earlier this month. That’s about one million fewer than the CBO’s projection for the previous legislation. The CBO said in its projection that more people will get insurance but that the coverage under those plans would be less generous. In some

If played correctly, the psychotic explosion of the Democrats and their allies in the jackal press over the Comey dismissal and his alleged memo can become a decisive victory for the president. The Mueller nomination, a hybrid arrangement that will be a supplementary investigation with the FBI, will push the question into a cul-de-sac that will entirely clear the president. It need hardly here be emphasized that the efforts to represent the firing of Comey as an excess of authority, an attempt to discourage an exposé of a scandal between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, a replication of any

Election machines in three states were not hacked to give Donald Trump the election. There was never a serious post-election movement of electors to defy their constitutional duties and vote for Hillary Clinton. Nor, once Trump was elected, did transgendered people begin killing themselves in alarming numbers. Nor were there mass resignations at the State Department upon his inauguration. Nor did Donald Trump seek an order to “ban all Muslims” from entering the U.S. Instead, he temporarily sought a suspension in visas for everyone, regardless of religion, from seven Middle Eastern states that the Obama administration had earlier identified as

Portland has an appropriation problem. This week in white nonsense, two white women—Kali Wilgus and Liz “LC” Connely—decided it would be cute to open a food truck after a fateful excursion to Mexico. There’s really nothing special about opening a Mexican restaurant—it’s probably something that happens everyday. But the owners of Kooks Burritos all but admitted in an interview with Willamette Week that they colonized this style of food when they decided to “pick the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever.” “...You can eat $5 lobster on the beach,” Connelly said, “which they give

In the post “Trump agonistes” last week I noted what I saw in the news stories that have created the consuming controversies of the past few weeks: hostile officials inside the executive branch of the government seeking the removal of Donald Trump from office. They are powerful. They lack any qualms about abusing their positions. They are determined. And they have the invaluable assistance of the Democrats’ mainstream media adjunct. With malicious intent, “current officials” inside the intelligence agencies with access to top secret information, for example, have passed it on under the cloak of anonymity to their friends in

Paris– President Emmanuel Macron wants a sixth extension of France’s state of emergency since the Paris attacks of November 2015, his prime minister said Wednesday, adding that the terror threat “remains very high”. The new president, elected on May 7, also wants legislation to boost the powers of the security forces, Edouard Philippe said, two days after the Manchester concert suicide bombing that claimed 22 lives. “France and the United Kingdom are fighting the same enemy,” Philippe said after a meeting of his defence council. “The terrorist threat remains, in Europe, in our two countries, at a very high level.”

The president’s tour in the Middle East and Europe is going extremely well, to the point where there is almost complete silence from the Democrats. The Treasury and the Office of Management and Budget are rolling out a budget and we might finally be turning a corner on settling this administration into office. The lengthy sequence of malicious allegations about Trump’s unfitness for office is steadily fading: Sexism, racism, Islamophobia, bumptiousness and lack of nuance in international affairs — as in a dance of numerous veils, they keep falling away.

Britain took the unprecedented step of deploying hundreds of soldiers to patrol the streets of London today as the country woke up to a heightened terror threat following the Manchester suicide bombing. Around 1,000 heavily-armed military personnel from the Royal Artillery, Paratroop and Irish Guards regiments are outside the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and other UK landmarks after Theresa May warned that a fresh terror attack may be ´imminent´. The extraordinary steps were taken as police in Manchester revealed it is ´very clear´ suicide bomber Salman Abedi was part of a terror ´network´ and an off-duty woman police officer

Just 40 percent of taxpayers who called to make payment arrangements were able to get through in the most recent tax filing season — and those that did manage to connect had to wait on average more than 45 minutes, said Ms. Olson, whose Office of the Taxpayer Advocate essentially functions as the public’s “voice” at the federal tax-collection agency.
