Report: Australian officials
frustrated by FBI-Russia leak

The Hill, by Brett Samuels

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 1/1/2018 9:01:09 PM

Australian officials are reportedly frustrated that one of the country´s diplomats was revealed to be the source of information that may have sparked an FBI investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. The New York Times first reported on Saturday that former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos told Australian diplomat Alexander Downer during a bar conversation in May 2016 that Russian officials were shopping damaging information on Hillary Clinton. Two months later, Australia relayed the conversation to the FBI. The information may have triggered the July 2016 investigation into Russian interference in the election. The Sydney Morning Herald confirmed that sequence

Let me see if I have this right; Trump man Papadopoulos, gives info in a casual conversation to the Aussies that Hillary Clinton has Russian collusion or some such shenanigans, and the Aussies sit on it for two months, then send the hearsay rumor from Papadopoulos to the FBI which immediately investigates Trump for Russian collusion.

Yep, really. Now, you can see how crazy all this crap is.

Maybe the Aussies intelligence spooks should have known that US "intelligence agencies" and law enforcement agencies leaked like a sieve and kept their mouths shut.

The Australians know that the US Government does not countenance the leaking of highly classified intelligence information. What is happening is that highly partisan Obama Administration apparacheks and high level partisan Democrat bureaucrats leaked that information in an effort to save their corrupt butts.

Australian officials should be more frustrated by the fact that they are believing New York Times articles.

The left loses its cool

Posted By: abuela10- 6/25/2018 8:07:31     Post Reply
Two senior Trump administration officials were heckled at restaurants. A third was denied service. Florida GOP Attorney General Pam Bondi required a police escort away from a movie about Mister Rogers after activists yelled at her in Tampa — where two other Republican lawmakers say they were also politically harassed last week, one of them with her kids in tow. In the Donald Trump era, the left is as aggressively confrontational as anyone can remember. What it means for 2018 — whether it portends a blue wave of populist revolt for Democrats or a red wall of silent majority resistance from

Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams does not vote. But for the first time, he said Sunday, he is thinking about it — thanks to the effort by opponents of Donald Trump to ostracize people who support the president. Adams, who predicted Trump would win the 2016 election en route to becoming an influential political writer, was reacting on his daily Periscope broadcast to “conservative” Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, who defended a Virginia restaurant owner who ejected White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday. it is not altogether a bad thing to show those who think they’re exempt from personal responsibility

Erik Prince, the founder of private security company Blackwater, has found himself embroiled in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of potential coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. During the campaign, Prince reportedly met at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr., operative George Nader, and social media specialist Joel Zamel to discuss a potential pro-Trump social media influence operation. He also met with Russian sovereign wealth fund manager Kirill Dmitriev during the transition period—a meeting reportedly planned to set up a backchannel between the Trump administration and

So what is it with Staten Island

Staten Island, N.Y. - How popular is President Donald Trump on Staten Island? So popular that he even tops the iconic Robert De Niro. At least as far as Great Kills resident Joseph DeVito is concerned. DeVito has become an Internet sensation after trashing a photo of De Niro in the wake of the actor´s foul-mouthed "F--k Trump" diatribe at the Tony Awards. That rant led DeVito, who calls De Niro his idol in the video, to take a framed picture of the actor from his wall, drop it in a trash can outside, and smash the picture glass with a hammer. He then tears the picture to pieces. "Another Trump-hater down," DeVito says, closing the lid on

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders hit back Wednesday night against a report that she was considering leaving her role, saying she “loves” her job and is “honored” to work with President Trump. Sanders was replying to an earlier CBS News report that both she and deputy press secretary Raj Shah have considered leaving their positions in the administration. “Does @CBSNews know something I don’t about my plans and my future,” Sanders asked in a tweet. “I was at my daughter’s year-end Kindergarten event and they ran a story about my ‘plans to leave the WH’ without even talking to me.”

Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein is expected to brief President Trump on Thursday about the inspector general report on law enforcement’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe before it is released to the public, people familiar with the matter said. Capitol Hill staffers were told Tuesday that scheduling and logistical conflicts would make it necessary for the Justice Department to shift its planned Thursday morning briefing to the afternoon, according to people familiar with the congressional plans. The scheduling change was apparently made to accommodate the White House, though staffers were not told the precise reason, the people

Back-slapping Trump summit

Singapore - A historic handshake in front of US and North Korean flags, a solemn signing ceremony and back-slapping compliments: critics charge that US President Donald Trump has legitimised Kim Jong Un on the world stage. The photo opportunity the world was waiting to see -- the two leaders clasping hands -- has also been a goal of the Kim dynasty for decades. And analysts noted that Trump was treating as an equal a man who only a few months ago seemed to be tipping the world towards nuclear war and whose regime has been accused of horrendous human rights

McCain, conservative senator?
How it can still happen

The rumor mill is churning out the possibility that Cindy McCain will take over her husband´s Arizona Senate seat should he resign due to his terminal illness. I have always suspected that she was the reason behind her husband choosing Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008. Now, of course, he´s made public remarks that he regretted choosing the former Alaska governor, overlooking the fact that she gave his presidential campaign a much needed boost. What many conservatives don´t realize is that Cindy is way smarter than her husband and a much better person.

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a document that Mr. Trump described as "important" and "comprehensive," to conclude their meetings in Singapore. The document, which offers few details about how the aims will be accomplished, says North Korea commits to working towards denuclearization. Mr. Trump said he "absolutely" will invite Kim to the White House. Mr. Trump said he thinks the summit went "better than anybody could have expected." As they began the summit, Mr. Trump said he thinks he and Kim will have a "terrific relationship," and Kim, through a translator, said North Korea had

Stephanie Wilkinson was at home Friday evening — nearly 200 miles from the White House — when the choice presented itself. Her phone rang about 8 p.m. It was the chef at the Red Hen, the tiny farm-to-table restaurant that she co-owned just off Main Street in Lexington, Va. Sarah Huckabee Sanders had just walked in and sat down, the chef informed her. “He said the staff is a little concerned. What should we do?” Wilkinson told The Washington Post. “I said I’d be down to see if it’s true.” It seemed unlikely to her that President Trump’s press secretary

Waters said, “I have no sympathy for these people that are in this administration who know it’s wrong for what they’re doing on so many fronts.

Chicago - A division of the American Library Association has voted to remove the name of Laura Ingalls Wilder from a major children’s book award, over concerns about how the author portrayed African Americans and Native Americans. The board of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) made the unanimous decision to change the name on Saturday, at a meeting in New Orleans. The name of the prize was changed from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award.

President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday morning that the US should deport immigrants who enter the US illegally with no legal process. Trump said once "somebody comes in" the country, they should be removed with "no Judges or Court Cases" — a move that would violate the long-established legal precedent for immigrants´ rights to due process. (Snip) The US Constitution´s Fifth Amendment guarantees the right to "due process of law" in criminal proceedings. In 1953, the Supreme Court clarified this right extended to non-US citizens.

The boycott-Trump movement has resurged. Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October 2016 to encourage people seeking a way to take concrete action against Donald Trump to boycott companies — large and small — that do business with his family. As a result, brands such as Nordstrom, Jet.com, and Gilt dropped Ivanka Trump´s fashion line last year. While Coulter has remained steadfast in her quest to encourage the other 62 retailers, nonprofits, and even a movie produced by Harvey Weinstein to ditch Trump products, the issue has peaked once more among consumers and

It´s come to this: according to some, people should be picking their casual dining choices based on their politics. NPR published an opinion piece by writer Monique Truong that claims in the headline that it is "hypocrisy" for administration members who support President Trump´s way of handling the long-ignored border crisis to eat at Mexican restaurants. These are people who work for the president, of course, so they are essentially being taken to task for doing their jobs. Truong considers recent forays to Mexican food dining establishments by administration policy adviser Stephen Miller and

Ms. Lee, who joined a congressional delegation that visited intake and detention facilities Saturday near the border in Texas, described the conditions as “tragic.” “I mean, these people are being criminalized,” said Ms. Lee on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We went into the processing center, where there are cages, certainly.
