British Complain After Trump Spokesman
Cites Wiretapping Report

Bloomberg, by Margaret Talev and Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 3/17/2017 7:49:08 AM

British officials complained to the White House Thursday after press secretary Sean Spicer cited a Fox News commentator’s report claiming former President Barack Obama had enlisted U.K. intelligence to spy on President Donald Trump. Andrew Napolitano, a legal pundit for Fox News who has advised the current president, claimed during a March 14 telecast that three intelligence sources told the network Obama personally appealed to the British Government Communications Headquarters, known as the GCHQ, to spy on Trump. Spicer highlighted the report in a list of media accounts he read to reporters during his briefing on Thursday, arguing that the stories

Of course if such "wiretapping" occurred, or if it did not, you are going to get the same response from the British. That´s the way the British have always operated. In that respect during early World War II the British broke the Nazi codes that gave the allies a huge advantage in defeating the Nazis, and would not even own up to that for decades after the war ended. So with the British anything is possible.

When you think about it, whose to say that it was not the British who "hacked" the the unsecured e-mail accounts of the Democratic National Committee, Hillary Clinton, and John Podesta to their own end, along with making it look like the Russians did it.

I would like to complain to the British about the outrageous treatment of our President, whom many in your country say should not be allowed to visit, or speak to your Parliament. That, after lying here, and elsewhere, that you, or your employees or contractors, have not been using the NSA database to surveil Americans, when you like.

Exclusive: Lead poisoning afflicts
neighborhoods across California
Reuters, by Joshua Schneyer and M.B. Pell    Original Article

Dozens of California communities have experienced recent rates of childhood lead poisoning that surpass those of Flint, Michigan, with one Fresno locale showing rates nearly three times higher, blood testing data obtained by Reuters shows. The data shows how lead poisoning affects even a state known for its environmental advocacy, with high rates of childhood exposure found in a swath of the Bay Area and downtown Los Angeles. And the figures show that, despite national strides in eliminating lead-based products, hazards remain in areas far from the Rust Belt or East Coast regions filled with old housing and legacy industry.

Paul Manafort, former campaign chairman for Donald Trump´s successful 2016 presidential run, is under new scrutiny for his activities while working for a Russian-backed ex-president of Ukraine, as Trump faces renewed questions about ties between his campaign and the Kremlin. In documents released by Serhiy Leshchenko, a journalist and lawmaker, Manafort is alleged to have laundered $750,000, via a Belize-based company, in October 2009. That would have pre-dated Manafort´s work for the Trump campaign. I have found

Right-wing firebrand and rising media star Tomi Lahren has reportedly been suspended by TheBlaze, where she hosts a primetime commentary show. Lahren, 24, came into controversy over the weekend after a Friday appearance on The View, in which she claimed to be “pro-choice” and essentially argued that anti-abortion conservatives are hypocrites. Her comments led to a public scolding from her boss, Glenn Beck, who then used his radio show on Monday morning to subtly jab at her as intellectually dishonest. According to The Daily Caller, another conservative outlet, Lahren’s “suspension is in effect for at least one week,” and that

WASHINGTON — The U.S. government is ordering passengers on nonstop, U.S.-bound flights from a handful of mostly Middle Eastern and North African countries to pack electronic devices other than cellphones in their checked baggage. Senior Trump administration officials said that starting Tuesday morning airlines flying directly to the United States from 10 airports in eight countries could allow only cellphones and smartphones in carry-on bags for U.S.-bound flights. Other electronics, including laptops and tablets, will be indefinitely banned from the passenger cabin. The officials said the airlines were to have 96 hours to implement the security order or face being barred from

What role Ivanka Trump plays in her father’s White House is among the pressing questions at the intersection of politics and business under the Trump administration. Since her father became president, Ms. Trump has sat in meetings with political and business leaders at the White House, drawing criticism that she could use her informal adviser role to promote her brand. Now, she also works out of a West Wing office and is in the process of getting a security clearance and government-issued devices. To address those concerns, Ms. Trump handed over day-to-day control of her company to her top executive, Abigail Klem,

The 4 bombshells of James Comey
CNN, by Z.Byron Wolf    Original Article

Washington -The first time that James Comey ever delivered bombshell testimony on Capitol Hill, it was about how he stood up to the White House, refusing to let it carry on with warrantless wiretapping through the National Security Agency. Ten years later, he was at the center of attention again, sitting alongside the NSA, refuting the suggestion that a president could ever unilaterally wiretap without a warrant. Those two bombshells, which are totally unrelated but share some weird parallels and the common thread of warrantless wiretapping, bookend two other ones about Hillary Clinton´s use of a private email server while she was

When I was growing up in Greenville, Mississippi, departed members of the community rated either a news obituary or a simple death notice in the Delta Democrat Times. If fortunate, the deceased might receive a further sendoff in the form of a much-coveted mention in Brodie Crump´s "Old Stuff" column. Simple and tasteful. Everybody knew what to do. Death, like everything else, is so much more complicated today, including and especially the important matter of one´s obituary. The lengthy, paid obituary has replaced the courtesy obituary or very brief paid notice that small-town newspapers in the South, as I remember it,

The Secret Service says its employees are upset with how long it took agents to apprehend a White House fence jumper earlier this month. "The men and women of the Secret Service are extremely disappointed and angry in how the events of March 10th transpired," the Secret Service said in a publicly shared statement Friday evening. This stands in contrast to President Trump´s praise of the Secret Service for their efforts to capture the intruder the day after the incident. The "Secret Service did a fantastic job last night," Trump told reporters Saturday. The Secret Service said that after conducting over 50

Less than 24 hours after meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to criticize Germany for not keeping up with its defense payments to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the United States. “Despite what you have heard from the FAKE NEWS, I had a GREAT meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel,” Trump wrote in a tweet March 18. “Nevertheless, Germany owes vast sums of money to NATO & the United States must be paid more for the powerful, and very expensive, defense it provides to Germany!” Trump has repeatedly called on NATO member countries to contribute

Here´s what Trump supporters mean
when they talk about the ´deep state´
Los Angeles Times, by Kurtis Lee    Original Article

Leaks to reporters. Supposed wiretaps of Donald Trump during the presidential campaign. Federal court rulings against the ban on travel and refugee resettlement. For allies of Trump — aides, politicians and right-wing news sites — these are evidence of the existence of a “deep state,” a secretive, coordinated network inside the government dedicated to undermining the administration. Asked by reporters recently whether the deep state exists, Sean Spicer, the president’s press secretary, offered this observation: “I don’t think it should come as any surprise that there are people burrowed into government during eight years of the last administration and may have

The Justice Department is planning to announce on Wednesday indictments of Russian operatives involved in the theft of data from 500 million Yahoo user accounts in 2014. Two spies from the Russian intelligence agency, FSB, and two hackers will be indicted, which would be the first U.S. criminal cyber charges against Russian government officials, the Washington Post reported. Yahoo reported the heist in September 2016. It said it had lost information, both encrypted and unencrypted data, that included personal and contact information, as well as security questions and answers. The company said an internal investigation confirmed the account information was stolen from

Fox News has indefinitely removed contributor Andrew Napolitano from its programming, following an unsubstantiated claim he made on air last week and that was refuted by U.S. intelligence officials, according to a report. The Los Angeles Times reported Monday that Napolitano has not made any appearances on Fox since last Thursday. Citing an anonymous source, the paper said Napolitano "is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future." The Washington Examiner has asked a Fox spokesperson for confirmation of the report. Napolitano last week tried to bolster President Trump´s own previous and unfounded claim

Professor Hans Joachim Schellnhuber (shown) wants to take us back to the Stone Age — literally. In a March 15 interview with the German newspaper Deutsche Welle, the German physicist declared that global warming is so serious that not only must we all give up the use of coal and our internal combustion vehicles in the next 13 years, but we must also ditch concrete and steel — for “wood, clay and stone.” If we don’t do this, along with other drastic measures, we are headed toward planetary warming of “4, 5, 6 or even 12 degrees,” he claims.

Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security.

Several Senate Democrats were unified in deriding originalism as a judicial philosophy during Monday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to Supreme Court justiceship Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), ranking Democrat of the committee, described originalism as a "very troubling” jurisprudential approach. The Framers, she added, intended for the Constitution to be continuously reinterpreted over time (emphasis added): “Judge Gorsuch has also stated that he believes judges should look to the original public meaning of the Constitution when they decide what a provision of the Constitution means.

The FBI director was called to testify alongside National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers for a public session of the House intelligence committee.

Schumer’s demand is highly unlikely to gain traction with Senate GOP leaders, who are planning a vote on Gorsuch early next month. But the move
