Leak Investigations, Journalists,
and Double Standards
National Review, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 6/9/2018 5:19:42 PM     Post Reply
It is an interesting contrast. The media are in a lather over the Justice Department’s grand-jury investigation of contacts between several reporters and a government source — the former Senate Intelligence Committee security director who has been indicted for lying to investigators about his leaks to the press. The same media are in a lather over the refusal of the president of the United States, at least thus far, to submit to questioning by the special counsel in the Russia investigation. The president is placing himself “above the law,” they contend, if he rebuffs prosecutors or defies a grand-jury subpoena.

Minneapolis cops halt low-level marijuana
stings after racial disparity revealed
Star Tribune [Minneapolis, MN], by Libor Jany and Randy Furst    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 6/9/2018 4:45:28 PM     Post Reply
Minneapolis police abruptly ended the practice of targeting small-scale marijuana sellers downtown after revelations that nearly every one arrested was black. In a series of rushed announcements Thursday, authorities said that police would no longer conduct sting operations targeting low-level marijuana sales, and charges against 47 people arrested in the first five months of 2018 would be dismissed. The extraordinary turnaround came after Hennepin County’s chief public defender contacted Mayor Jacob Frey to complain about what looked like blatant racial profiling. Frey then directed Chief Medaria Arradondo to stop

Anthony Bourdain was
‘exhausted’ in his final months

Anthony Bourdain kept a brutal work schedule and was “absolutely exhausted” in the months leading up to his death, according to a report. “?His travel schedule was grueling and he often seemed quite beat-up from it, as anyone would be,” a source who worked closely with Bourdain in the past year told People. “He’d put everything into the shoots and then go back to his room to isolate.” The 61-year-old host of CNN’s “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” was found Friday in his hotel room in France, by fellow celebrity chef and close friend Eric Ripert. Bourdain’s mother, Gladys, said Ripert told her her son had been in “a dark mood

Seymour M. Hersh’s memoir Reporter is out this week, and it’s the story of an epic career in journalism. Here is the son of Jewish immigrants, owners of a dry cleaning store, taking to the streets of Chicago, a law school dropout turned cub reporter, on the police beat, learning that you couldn’t report on a cop shooting an unarmed black man, even if the cop admitted it and the coroner’s report said the man had been shot in the back. Here is Hersh working for the Associated Press in the Pentagon, exposing the U.S. bombing of civilian sites in Hanoi. Here is Hersh making a brief foray into politics as press secretary for the antiwar candidate

Billionaire George Soros faces
renewed attacks with defiance

ZURICH - George Soros, the billionaire investor and liberal donor, sat in his hotel suite by Lake Zurich this week, lamenting the turn much of the world has taken in recent years: "Everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong." His favored presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, lost to President Donald Trump, whose "America First" platform runs counter to the globalism Soros embraces. Trump, he said, "is willing to destroy the world." The European Union, which Soros once hoped would be so successful that he could end his charitable work in the region, is contending with the impending loss of Britain

According to the latest FOX News poll President Donald Trump has a better rating than Presidents Obama and Reagan at the same point in their presidencies. President Trump’s approval is now at 45%. And that is with 90% negative coverage from the far left mainstream media. (Photo) On June 9, 2010 Barack Obama’s approval number was 46% on the Rasmussen poll. President Trump’s approval number is at 47% according to Rasmussen today. Again…. And that is with 90% negative coverage from the far left mainstream media.

As sun drenched the historic track on Saturday, the revelers placed bets and soaked up the many drinks and snacks on offer before turning their attention to the action.

As Anthony Bourdain fans flock to her restaurant, the owner of the Hanoi noodle shop where he slurped down ´bun cha´ with former US president Barack Obama has expressed her shock and sorrow over the death of the globetrotting American celebrity chef. Bun Cha Huong Lien restaurant in the Vietnamese capital´s leafy Old Quarter soared to fame after the sit-down between then-President Obama and Bourdain during an episode of the CNN show, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, aired in September 2016. The pair shared a simple meal of pork noodles and fried spring rolls — each dish worth around $3 —

Bid to block Bernie Sanders? DNC adopts rule
change, wants only avowed Democrats to run
Fox News, by Stephen Sorace    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 6/9/2018 4:13:47 PM     Post Reply
The Democratic National Committee adopted a new rule Friday aimed at preventing non-Democrats, such as independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, from seeking the party’s 2020 presidential nomination, reports said. The rule change, adopted at a DNC meeting in Providence, R.I., requires all candidates for the party’s nomination to “run and serve” as Democrats, Yahoo News reported. Some supporters of Sanders -- who caucuses with the Democrats despite declining to declare a party affiliation -- say the move was motivated by “spite” after Sanders gave Hillary Clinton a run for her money during the

Throw on a fresh coat of paint and refresh the tile grout. Install security cameras, start closing streets and putting up security checkpoints. And by all means, keep hordes of pesky reporters away. As Singapore gears up to host a historic nuclear summit between an unpredictable U.S. president and a little-seen North Korean dictator, an aggressive international press corps is searching for snippets of information in a cat-and-mouse game with local authorities notoriously determined to keep order. Unlike traditional summits, the White House has put out almost no details — and North Korea none at all — about the planned pageantry and

The Beltway´s Get Trump movement has added another pair of lovebirds to the morass, this time in the Ali Watkins-James Wolfe hook-up, evidently uniting love with a common mission to destroy the president. Here´s what went down, according to Philly.com, which isn´t too flattering in its reportage: Watkins, who interned at the Philadelphia Daily News in spring 2013, started a personal relationship with Wolfe sometime around December 2013 when she was a Temple intern working with the McLatchy [sic]-Tribune news service, according to a federal indictment. The relationship continued after she graduated in 2014 until last

Why one judge´s decision could

NBC News, by Claire Atkinson    Original Article

The U.S. media industry waits on one man: Richard Leon. A senior judge at the U.S. District court for the District of Columbia, Leon will decide on Tuesday whether to approve AT&T’s $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner. AT&T’s argument for the merger is focused on the looming threat from tech companies that have used the internet to sidestep the traditional media distribution methods of movie studios and cable systems. Media companies are now trying to stockpile the most sought after content and develop their own internet-based distribution in hopes of attracting enough subscribers to compete with globally established

Canada warns immigrants in U.S.

MIAMI — As President Trump travels north to Canada to attend the G7 summit, Canadian officials have been heading south to try to stem a wave of undocumented immigrants headed their way. In what has become an increasingly regular mission, Canadian representatives visited the U.S this week to warn immigrants fearful over President Trump´s immigration crackdown that they can´t simply rush north of the border to find safe haven. (Snip) In the past year, Canada has seen bursts of U.S.-based immigrants crossing illegally into Canada, mostly into the Quebec province that borders New York and other northeastern U.S. states.

Massive crowds turned out in London on Saturday to rally for free speech and hear Dutch firebrand Geert Wilders demand the release of Tommy Robinson from prison. “It’s so good to see so many of you here today, you are all heroes for being here today,” said the Freedom Party leader, an outspoken critic of radical Islam who rose to second place in the Dutch national elections last year. Wilders told the crowd he had come to Britain to tell Robinson’s supporters they “will never walk alone” and to “tell the world, and the UK government in particular: Free Tommy Robinson!”

There is a long and noble history of two individuals coming together to create a memorable double act. Braque and Picasso, Lennon and McCartney, Dolce and Gabbana, Morecambe and Wise and French and Saunders spring to mind. There have also been less successful, rather odd couplings. I´m thinking Bing Crosby and David Bowie, Sam Fox and Mick Fleetwood, and now - 513 pages later - Bill Clinton and James Patterson. Their co-authored book The President is Missing is not quite as bad as Sam and Mick´s hosting of the 1989 Brit awards, but it is not far off. It is, let us say, not the most thrilling thriller.

On Tuesday, June the Republican Party in the Commonwealth of Virginia will be selecting their nominee for the United States Senate. Though chances seem dim amid consistent statewide losses over the years despite gargantuan efforts in the polarized and increasingly-blue state, I personally will be voting for Virginia State Delegate and former U.S. Army Special Forces Sergeant First Class Nick Freitas. Though I’ve participated as party official, nominee, media commentator, activist, and staff in Virginia Republican politics I initially found the primary race uninteresting. However recent events have caught my attention,

Evidence shows that a former high-level staffer of Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein is inextricably linked to Ali Watkins, a former Buzzfeed reporter, currently with The New York Times, who had accepted classified intelligence from former Senate Intelligence Committee security director James A. Wolfe. Wolfe was arrested this Thursday on allegations that he had lied to the FBI during the bureau’s investigation into whether or not he had leaked classified intelligence to the media. The gist of the connection is that Wolfe is an alleged deep state leaker who provided several mainstream media reporters — including Watkins, who was

Ben Rhodes, a former top aide to President Barack Obama, repeatedly dodged questions from CNN´s Wolf Blitzer Friday about a new report claiming his administration misled Congress about granting Iran access to the U.S. financial system during the negotiation of the Iranian nuclear deal. On Wednesday, Senate Republicans released a report claiming that the Obama administration secretly granted Iran a license "that authorized a conversion of Iranian assets worth billions of U.S. dollars using the U.S. financial system," despite administration officials testifying before Congress that granting Iran access to the U.S. financial system was

If There’s a Red Wave Election

As primaries roll by and the midterms approach, it’s worth remembering that for Republicans 2016 represented an opportunity more than a victory. It was a chance for them to help the country break the 30-year-spell the Clintons and the Bushes cast, President Barack Obama notwithstanding. It was also a chance for rank-and-file Republicans to replace an insulated, often feckless, party leadership that had elevated its own interests over everyone else’s. With their fixation on the person of President Trump, most Democrats don’t understand that for Republicans, taking the party back is part of a larger intellectual and political project.

The former Senate Intelligence Committee staffer indicted for lying to the FBI about his leaks to the media was charged in 2004 with domestic violence, court documents show. James A. Wolfe, 57, was charged on June 25, 2004 in a Maryland domestic violence case involving his wife. Maryland court records also show that Wolfe is listed in a June 2003 case that resulted in a protective order being placed against him. Wolfe was also a defendant in a 2006 civil claim from Tower Federal Credit Union. Maryland court documents show list the U.S. Senate Hart office building as Wolfe’s mailing address.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Tet Offensive, in which the North Vietnamese orchestrated a massive coordinated attack throughout South Vietnam. A book out in paperback on May 8, entitled The Odyssey of Echo Company: The 1968 Tet Offensive and the Epic Battle to Survive the Vietnam War, takes readers on the journey of Stan Parker. Americans need to be reminded of soldiers like Parker who fought patriotically for this country. While in Afghanistan, researching another book, Horse Soldiers, Doug Stanton met Sergeant Major Stan Parker, one of the U.S. Army´s longest serving soldiers.

Having enjoyed my 82nd birthday, I am part of a group of about 50 million Americans who are 65 years of age or older. Those who are 90 or older were in school during the 1930s. My age cohort was in school during the 1940s. Baby boomers approaching their 70s were in school during the 1950s and early ´60s. Try this question to any one of those 50 million Americans who are 65 or older: Do you recall any discussions about the need to hire armed guards to protect students and teachers against school shootings? Do you remember school policemen patrolling the hallways? How many students were shot to death during the time

(Reuters) - China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment maker ZTE secured a lifeline from the Trump administration on Thursday after agreeing to pay a $1 billion fine and overhaul leadership in a deal that will lift a ban on its doing business with U.S. suppliers. The agreement comes as U.S. President Donald Trump seeks trade concessions from China and negotiations continue to avoid a trade war between the world’s two largest economies. Shares of U.S. companies that do business with ZTE rose on Thursday. U.S. lawmakers immediately attacked the agreement, citing intelligence warnings that ZTE poses a national security threat.
