Russia probe grand jury looks like
‘a Black Lives Matter rally,’ says witness

Page Six, by Richard Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 1/2/2018 8:31:12 PM

The federal grand jury handing down indictments for special counsel Robert Mueller doesn’t appear to include any supporters of President Donald Trump, according to one witness who recently testified before the panel. “The grand jury room looks like a Bernie Sanders rally,” my source said. “Maybe they found these jurors in central casting, or at a Black Lives Matter rally in Berkeley [Calif.]” Of the 20 jurors, 11 are African-Americans and two were wearing “peace T-shirts,” the witness said. “There was only one white male in the room, and he was a prosecutor.” Mueller was not present. The Washington, DC, grand jury, which

I pray that Sessions is just waiting for the right moment and that he isn´t "one of them". How did we get to this absurd and scary state of affairs?

And the criminal trial juries will be drawn from the same pool, if the trials are held in DC. Geez!

When ´diversity´ means a distinct absence of diversity.

From allegations to investigations to deliberations, it seems the primary criterion for selecting the people involved is that they be resolutely anti-Trump and preferably on the Left.

Good. This is getting into the mainstream press after months and months at only sites like Conservative Treehouse and Lucianne.

That usually social column Page Six is carrying it is rather fascinating. Not just a social column when it comes to scandal. Then they’re all in.

This is one of the serious and substantial impediments to any government criminal cleanup in D.C. -- the voter roles of the District are overwhelmingly black, EBT carrying Democrats. What income they do have comes from government jobs in dysfunctional city agencies. This is the voter base that re-elected Marion Barry as mayor after his return from federal prison. It is the firewall against any prosecution of a federal Democrat. This is why it´s time to decentralize the federal agencies. Send them to the States. The only government that should be allow to remain -- the White House, the Capitol, the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress.

Facebook suspends another data

CNBC, by Michelle Castillo    Original Article

Facebook is suspending a data analytics firm called CubeYou from the platform after CNBC notified the company that CubeYou was collecting information about users through quizzes. CubeYou misleadingly labeled its quizzes "for non-profit academic research," then shared user information with marketers. The scenario is eerily similar to how Cambridge Analytica received unauthorized access to data from as many as 87 million Facebook user accounts to target political marketing. The company sold data that had been collected by researchers working

Apparently, Kevin´s conservative views have no place in Goldberg’s vision of a wide-ranging, diverse, provocative debate. Jeffrey Goldberg’s announcement that The Atlantic had “parted ways” with our old friend Kevin Williamson — what a gutless way to announce you’ve fired someone, a week or so into the job — represents a successful effort to redefine “beyond the pale” in the political debates of 2018, or to close the Overton Window, if you prefer that metaphor. A week ago, Goldberg told his staff this in a memo: I don’t think that taking a person’s worst tweets, or assertions, in isolation is the best journalistic

Facebook has deleted some of Mark Zuckerberg´s private messages over fears sensitive data could be leaked. Three sources claim old Facebook messages from Zuckerberg have disappeared from their inbox. The recipients were not notified - raising concerns about what the Facebook CEO could be hiding. Facebook claims the change was made after the 2014 Sony Pictures hack, when a mass data breach at the movie studio resulted in embarrassing email histories being leaked. However, the lack of disclosure has angered some users, along with the absence of a similar tool to recall messages for normal users.

WASHINGTON — At least five officials at the Environmental Protection Agency, four of them high-ranking, were reassigned or demoted, or requested new jobs in the past year after they raised concerns about the spending and management of the agency’s administrator, Scott Pruitt. The concerns included unusually large spending on office furniture and first-class travel, as well as certain demands by Mr. Pruitt for security coverage, such as requests for a bulletproof vehicle and an expanded 20-person protective detail, according to people who worked for or with the E.P.A. and have direct knowledge of the situation. Mr. Pruitt bristled when the officials —

Trump says he didn´t know
about Stormy Daniels payment
CNN, by Kevin Liptak    Original Article

President Donald Trump said on Thursday he did not know about a $130,000 payment made to the adult film actress Stormy Daniels for her silence, his first public acknowledgment of the scandal surrounding an alleged sexual affair that has plagued him for months. "No," a terse Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One when questioned about his knowledge of the payment, which was made by his private attorney Michael Cohen in the month before the 2016 election. The one word response broke a months-long public silence from Trump on the matter, though he´s fumed about the issue in private and adamantly denied

It looks to us like Lawrence Kudlow is off to a good start as President Trump’s new director of the National Economic Council — just in the nick of time. The markets are on edge because President Trump has started to impose on Communist China, and some of our other adversaries, the tariffs that as candidate he’d promised the voters he’d use. Standing in front of the White House yesterday Mr. Kudlow went on Fox Business Network to try to calm the waters. Mr. Kudlow’s basic message is that if there’s a problem on the trade front, the blame belongs not

Up to half of all flights in Europe have faced delays after a Europe-wide air traffic control system failed. Eurocontrol, which runs the system, said that a technical problem meant that as many as half a million passengers could be affected, disrupting travellers who went away for the Easter weekend. ´Today 29,500 flights were expected in the European network. Approximately half of those could have some delay as a result of the system outage,´ Eurocontrol said. The agency later said the Network Manager system was back up and running from 7pm BST.

LONDON — British officials investigating the poisoning of Sergei V. Skripal, a former Russian double agent, believe it is likely that an assassin smeared a nerve agent on the door handle at his home. This operation is seen as so risky and sensitive that it is unlikely to have been undertaken without approval from the Kremlin, according to officials who have been briefed on the early findings of the inquiry. This theory suggests that an assassin, who Britain believes was working on behalf of the Russian government, walked up to the door of Mr. Skripal’s brick home on a quiet street

Cynthia Nixon is continuing to run a campaign for governor of New York that defies convention by granting her first television sit-down interview to Wendy Williams, Variety has learned. The former “Sex and the City” actress turned political star will be a guest on “The Wendy Williams Show” on Wednesday, April 4. The syndicated daytime talk show isn’t usually known for landing big political gets. Instead, Williams focuses on dishy celebrity news and pop culture developments in her “Hot Topics” segments. The draw to Nixon’s campaign is that “The Wendy Williams Show” is very popular, averaging up to 2 million

It´s also imposing a new 15 percent tariff on 120 imported U.S. commodities, including fruits.

A Democratic lawmaker demanded Monday evening that Fox News Channel fire Sean Hannity for having Michael Cohen as a lawyer. Rep. Gerry Connolly, Virginia Democrat, said on CNN that Mr. Hannity is untrustworthy because he did not disclose his ties to Mr. Cohen while commenting on or covering the Trump administration. “I think he is so into this like a pig in the mud he can’t get out of it. And I think he deserves to be fired. His word can never again be trusted,” Mr. Connolly said, calling the revelation at a court hearing earlier Monday “a big stain on Hannity
