Report: Bannon Lawyers Up, Signals
Full Cooperation With Russia Investigators

Daily Caller, by Kevin Daly

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/12/2018 4:49:07 AM

Former White House strategist Steve Bannon has reportedly retained legal counsel in advance of meetings with investigators probing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Bannon is slated to take questions from members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence next week. The interview could present danger to the Trump administration, as Bannon — lately spurned by longtime friends and allies — could be unpredictable in the aftermath of his break with the president. The Daily Beast reported Thursday that Bannon has hired William Burck of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan. Burck is co-managing partner in the firm’s Washington office and

Bannon may be rough as 20 grit paper but he is still a Trump loyalist and conservative thinker. He can redeem himself (Somewhat) without damaging Trump.

Your lips to Bannon´s ears, #2. I have little faith in just about everyone these days which is a sad state of affairs. All I can do is wait and see what people actually do and hope I´m not disappointed.

Bannon, Smannon. The guy has the credibility of Bluto. If Bannon appears before a committee as a sworn witness and lies, he knows he´s in deep doo. He has nothing, and never has had anything. Why congress wants to interview him is a mystery. I suspect it is the sensation of it to give the committee the appearance of "being fair" for the leftists who still think in terms of "All thing Trump are bad!" After the Feinstein fiasco, they need something- even this rotten straw.

I guess I´m getting old. I remember when you had to testify, you just told the truth. Unpredictable doesn´t matter as long as he doesn´t lie. I don´t see how the truth will harm Trump, so let him testify.

The Justice Department Sues California
National Review Online, by Margot Cleveland    Original Article

On Monday, the Department of Justice filed suit against the state of California, challenging a state law that purports to prevent the federal government from selling federal lands without the permission of a state agency. Passed by the California legislature in October 2017, Senate Bill 50 declares that, with limited exceptions, “conveyances of federal public lands in California are void” unless the State Lands Commission is provided a “right of first refusal” or “the right to arrange for the transfer of the federal public land to another entity.” The statute also prohibits purchasers of federal land from recording the deed to




On the Trump-Russia investigation
and the rule of law

This week I took part in a debate on the question "Does the Russia investigation endanger the rule of law?" I said yes, and here is why: First, a caveat: If "endanger the rule of law" means "destroys our legal order and threatens our democracy," then no, I don´t think the Trump-Russia investigation does that. But if it means "involves our nation´s most powerful law enforcement and intelligence agencies in reckless political conduct that undermines our system of elections and the orderly transfer of power," then yes, the Trump-Russia investigation does, in fact, endanger the rule of law.

In an unguarded moment during the 2016 campaign, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski remarked that it is “our job,” not Trump’s, to “control exactly what people think.” The Sinclair Broadcast Group referenced that line in its promo. But the news accounts of the phony controversy over the promo never mention that Brzezinski did in fact make that outrageous comment. Unless I missed it, Brzezinski herself didn’t acknowledge the reference to the comment she made. Gripping her chair like a Victorian fainting couch, Brzezinski found the promo “frightening.” But beneath the hysterical blather was nothing more than the hurt feelings of an exposed liberal

´Fraud and Fiction: The Real
Truth Behind Fire and Fury´

It´s been three months since Michael Wolff´s sensational book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, rocked the nation. It continues to have an impact on the White House, even as the author´s credibility further deteriorates. Wolff said he´s "barely a journalist" and that his job as a writer has "nothing to do with truth." But that comes after weeks of headlines and cable news debate over the most sensational claims in his book, including that President Trump is mentally incapacitated. Fire and Fury wasn´t just a political insider book, it was a crisis that confronted the Trump administration

Here’s A Dueling List Of The Top 8
Westerns, Plus Actual Deep Cuts
The Federalist, by Aaron Gleason    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/3/2018 5:17:19     Post Reply
The Federalist recently published a popular article that did not deliver what it advertised. “The Top 10 Westerns Ever Made, Plus 10 More Deep Cuts” was deeply disappointing to this film buff. So here’s a deeper, better, alternative list of westerns. 1. ‘My Darling Clementine’ This is John Ford’s greatest western. “The Searchers” is extremely overrated, and “Stagecoach” is very, very boring. “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” is a truly great film, but not much of a western. It’s a political drama with western trappings. No, “My Darling Clementine” is probably Ford’s greatest film and easily his best western. Henry Fonda plays

Trump is wrong about Amazon on all counts
New York Post, by Rich Lowry    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/3/2018 4:54:33     Post Reply
President Trump gets results. His attacks on Amazon have tanked the company’s stock. It’s hard to think of a more pointlessly destructive act of presidential jawboning in our history. The online retailer is a jewel of our market economy that has delivered more choice and convenience at a lower cost. The backdrop for Trump’s animosity is that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post, which, like much of the major media, is unrelentingly hostile to the president. WaPo’s bias is nothing new, nor should it be taken out on the underlying business of its owner. Trump’s anti-Amazon jag can be put in




Relax, your coffee won’t give you cancer

Relax, your morning (and afternoon) coffee is still safe: The California court order for cancer warnings at all coffee shops is all about the state’s odd laws, not science. Judge Elihu Berle’s diktat to nearly 100 chains, including Starbucks and 7-Eleven, aims to enforce a 1986 law (passed by one of those California ballot proposals) that ordered businesses with at least 10 employees to disclose any carcinogens and toxic chemicals in their products. The substance at issue is acrylamide, large doses of which do cause cancer in lab rats. That’s why Golden State bureaucrats added it to their “warning required” list in

CNN mocked for glorifying JFKs
‘legendary’ infidelity after harping
on sex allegations against Trump
Fox News, by Brian Flood    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/3/2018 4:39:54     Post Reply
CNN was slammed for hypocrisy over the weekend when the network glorified President John F. Kennedy’s many infidelities after spending significant coverage painting President Trump as a monster for an alleged affair that occurred prior to his political career. While promoting “The Kennedys,” CNN hailed the 35th president´s “legendary love life,” before asking, “Did one of his affairs connect him with the mob?” The tweet featured video detailing JFK’s relationship with actress Judy Campbell, who was allegedly intimate with the head of the Chicago mafia while also having an affair with the president. “Hypocrisy at its finest,” one user responded.

In a study published today in Nature Astronomy, an international team of researchers announced the discovery of the most distant star ever observed. The team detected the blue supergiant star — which shone when the universe was just one-third its current age — with the help of both the Hubble Space Telescope and an observational phenomenon known as gravitational lensing. “This is the first time we’re seeing a magnified, individual star,” said Patrick Kelly, an astrophysicist of the University of Minnesota and lead author of the new study, in a press release. “You can see individual galaxies out there, but this

So the producer of the new film about Ted Kennedy’s Chappaquiddick scandal says some “very powerful people” tried to kill his movie. What a surprise — NOT! “Unfortunately,” Byron Allen told Variety last week, “very powerful people tried to put pressure on me not to release this movie. They went out of their way to try and influence me in a negative way.” Byron Allen is a TV comedian from the ’80s who has become a successful Hollywood mogul. He just bought what’s left of The Weather Channel for $300 million. By the way, he’s also black, so you would think that

LOST RIVER, W.Va. – The tale of the enigmatic vanishing of a flowing river that seemingly disappears underground only to reappear elsewhere is the stuff that holds visitors or children spellbound as the tale of subterranean passages explain away the naming of this town. Lost River is one of four unincorporated towns along West Virginia state route 259 that attracted America’s frontier families for its rich resources; surveyed by 16-year-old George Washington, this area has never had much population, never had the commerce to keep enough people here long enough to make it boom, but just long enough to make it

The author of an upcoming sneak look inside the Trump White House said adviser Kellyanne Conway is the “number one” leaker in the White House. Author Ronald Kessler also claims in “The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game” that President Trump knows that daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner bring “problems” but can’t fire them because they’re family. In a Sunday interview with CNN, Mr. Kessler said Ms. Conway, a counselor to the president and a former campaign manager, has grown so accustomed to leaking that she once forgot an interview was on-the-record as she “dissed” Ms. Trump

A Republican playing a leading role in the House probes into Russian election meddling and allegations of collusion between Donald Trump´s campaign and the Kremlin is advising the president to submit to an interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy, a former prosecutor, said Wednesday that Trump should comply with such a request if he has ´nothing to hide´ as he´s said repeatedly. ´Only he knows what he knows, so I would tell you, if you did not rob the bank, there´s no reason for you not to sit down and talk to the FBI about the bank

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman speculated the Mueller special counsel probe will result in some sort of finding that will lead to a “constitutional crisis.” That according to Friedman will lead to former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama having to step and prevent a constitutional crisis. (Snip) I believe the Mueller investigation, when it is finally put on the table before us, will trigger some form of constitutional crisis. I don’t know what he’s going to find about the president, whether it’s collusion, whether it’s financial impropriety, I have no idea. But

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III informed President Trump’s attorneys last month that he is continuing to investigate the president but does not consider him a criminal target at this point, according to three people familiar with the discussions. In private negotiations in early March about a possible presidential interview, Mueller described Trump as a subject of his investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Prosecutors view someone as a subject when that person has engaged in conduct that is under investigation but there is not sufficient evidence to bring charges. The special counsel also told Trump’s lawyers that he is

"She worked so hard on this event, so I want to thank you." With a big grin, Kimmel told his fans, "Not a chance she did one thing to help set that up.

Many Marjory Stoneman Douglas students behind the #NeverAgain movement don´t support a new requirement to carry only clear backpacks. Some see it as an invasion of privacy, and some say it´s not the change that´s needed to ensure school safety. Junior Cameron Kasky tweeted a photo of his clear backpack full of tampons Tuesday as a comment on the measure. As of Tuesday morning, the photo was retweeted nearly 2,000 times.

The movie isn’t a hit piece, but the history it tells is infuriating. Chappaquiddick must be counted one of the great untold stories in American political history: The average citizen may be vaguely aware of what happened but probably has little notion of just how contemptible was the behavior of Senator Ted Kennedy. Mainstream book publishers and Hollywood have mostly steered clear of the subject for 48 years. If Chappaquiddick had been released in 1970, it would have ended Kennedy’s political career.

The woman suspected of shooting three people at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, Calif. before killing herself was furious with the company because it had stopped paying her for videos she posted on the platform, her father said late Tuesday. The police identified the shooter as Nasim Aghdam, 39, of Southern California -- and said they had a run-in with her earlier in the day. Ismail Aghdam said he reported his daughter missing on Monday after she did not answer her phone for two days.

The gun manufacturers of America have had a tough time since Barack Obama, dubbed the “greatest gun salesman in America” on CNN Money, and “best gun salesman on the planet” on CNBC, left office. After the November 2016 election of President Trump, monthly background checks for firearms purchases tumbled by 500,000. The market was so grim that in February this year, legendary firearms manufacturer Remington filed for bankruptcy. But suddenly the fortunes of gun manufacturers seem to have taken a turn upward, thanks mostly to David Hogg. (snip) Background checks for gun sales shattered a record in March while celebrities and

On April 6, a bombshell will hit America´s theaters. That bombshell comes in the form of an understated, well-made, well-acted film called "Chappaquiddick." (Full disclosure: They advertise with my podcast.) The film tells the story of Ted Kennedy´s 1969 killing of political aide Mary Jo Kopechne; the Massachusetts Democratic senator drove his car off a bridge and into the Poucha Pond, somehow escaped the overturned vehicle and left Kopechne to drown. She didn´t drown, though. Instead, she reportedly suffocated while waiting for help inside an air bubble while Kennedy waited 10 hours to call for help. The Kennedy family and its
