House Republicans seek special
prosecutor for FISA requests

NBC News, by Mike Memoli

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 3/6/2018 6:43:09 PM

WASHINGTON — Two top congressional Republicans are calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate alleged abuses in the use of a secret surveillance program targeting a Trump campaign aide, the latest in a string of GOP efforts to put federal investigators under the same scrutiny facing many Trump associates. The new investigation, sought by the chairmen of the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees, would call into question a significant component of the FBI investigation now in the hands of special counsel Robert Mueller. It builds off the allegations in a memo authored by Republicans on

After listeningl to Gowdy and Goodlatte on FNC this evening it appears that Jeff Sessions has NOT condiucted any investigations into the FBI, the Dossier, Hillary’s escape from justice and more. The only thing that Sessions is doing is hiding behind a long overdue report from the DoJ’s Inspector General, an official who cannot compel testimony, cannot ask former employees to testify and most of all, cannot prosecute criminal acts. In other words, the IG report is as worthless as Sessions.

If Sessions has indeed ignored these stunning scandals, he should resign immediately. Sadly, Sessions has to decide whether to appoint a 2nd Special Counsel, which means he won’t. Hey, look. a squirrel is smoking pot in Colorado.

Why has it taken this long to inquire for this?

Oh, thats right. Between a useless progressive majority in the House led by Turtle McMumbles and AG Sessions ... well, like #1 says. Nothing will come of this request for justice.

I don´t know about a special prosecutor, but when is something going to be done, i.e. when will well connected Democrats be subjected to the same intense and aggressive investigation to which everyone connected to Donald Trump is being subjected? Currently, we have a two-tier justice system. One for Republicans and a completely different one for Democrats. Anyone can be indicted for something, which is what that imo, very bad man, Robert Mueller is doing. So far, Mueller and his obscenely large group of aggressive litigators, have destroyed the lives of several people. Personally, I hate to see our justice system (mis)used like this. Especially when Hillary Clinton is free as a bird, as are Susan Rice, Samantha Powers, the small group of incredibly powerful DOJ and FBI brass who misused their positions in multiple ways. What is going on here?

Two prosecutors, crossing swords over the same jurisdiction, is just plain stupid.
It would not surprise me, should another be appointed, that Herr Mueller and his band of gestapo agents might try to indict the other special counsel, for obstruction of justice.

Meanwhile Jeff Sessions supports probable cause for seizure of property and going after states with legalized marijuana.

Goodlatte and Gowdy are methodical. Sometimes that makes you look slow. These are the two House Republicans I would want making this request.

In a report from the Army’s Command and Staff College detailing a tactical success during the French Counterinsurgency in Algeria, we learn the following: In the spring of 1957, the French began construction of an elaborate barrier–the Morice Line–along 200 miles of the frontier with Tunisia. Anchored by the Mediterranean Sea in the north and the Sahara Desert in the south, it was a miracle of modern technology. Its main feature was an eight foot high electric fence through which a charge of 5,000 volts was passed. (Snip)This accords with the intuitive conclusion of millions of American voters: Walls work.

America knows Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students through mainly a handful of pro-gun control activist students, but according to a faculty member of the school where the deadly shooting took place, many other students say the most visible activists do not represent them. “I’ve had some students approach me privately to talk to me about it, but I should note that those student activists none of them were ever in any danger during this whole thing…none of them except for the one girl Samantha Fuentes,” the faculty member said, on the condition of anonymity, during an interview with NRATV that

Coffee cancer warning: What science

Trouble is brewing for coffee lovers in California, where a judge ruled that sellers must post scary warnings about cancer risks. But how frightened should we be of a daily cup of joe? Not very, some scientists and available evidence seem to suggest. Scientific concerns about coffee have eased in recent years, and many studies even suggest it can help health. "At the minimum, coffee is neutral. If anything, there is fairly good evidence of the benefit of coffee on cancer," said Dr. Edward Giovannucci, a nutrition expert at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Trump´s latest immigration gambit puts

President Donald Trump has California Democrats on the defensive over immigration these days. He’s moved to put a citizenship question on the 2020 census and is picking up support from some California cities and counties in his fight against the state’s sanctuary laws. Policy merits aside, the politics may work for Republicans, at least in the macro sense. Not surprisingly, the San Diego-area congressional delegation is split along party lines on the census question, while Republican boards and councils are the ones lining up to join Trump’s lawsuit to dismantle the sanctuary statutes. The citizenship question on its face doesn’t seem like a big

Anita Shreve, a best-selling author whose novels explored change, loss and troubled marriages, often against the backdrop of a real historical event, died on Thursday at her home in Newfields, N.H. She was 71. Her publisher, Alfred A. Knopf, said the cause was cancer. Ms. Shreve drew critical acclaim and a large following with books like “The Weight of Water” (1997), an intricate story involving a long-ago crime and present-day dramas. Susan Kenney, reviewing that book in The New York Times, described it as “a cryptic long-lost narrative inside an impending family tragedy wrapped in a true-crime murder mystery

Angela Merkel’s right-hand man Wolfgang Schäuble has said he hopes the poisoning of Russian double agent Sergei Skripal will persuade the United Kingdom to reverse Brexit and stay in the EU. The Bundestag president, who has been accused of inflicting punitive measures on weaker EU member-states and disregarding elections during his long tenure as Germany’s finance minister, made the comments to the Funke media group. Schauble, one of the most powerful politicians not just in Germany but in the entire Eurozone for years, was expanding on his previous comments that “In the Brexit campaign, the Britons were endlessly lied to and deceived

Children have been the inspiration and impetus for the White House Easter Egg Roll since the first event in 1878. And in keeping with another tradition, first lady Melania Trump will be welcoming children on Monday to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But the first lady is incorporating her platform of helping American children by soliciting eggs from all 50 states this year from high school students rather than professional designers. In Pennsylvania, Carlisle High School senior Jamyla Spells was chosen to design the state’s egg, the Sentinel reported. “I was really excited,” Spells said. “I feel my career is going somewhere.

I spent a weekend earlier this month trudging through an untelevised episode of Hoarders. The home lacked electricity. The bathtub overflowed with books. One could spy the attic through the holes in the second-floor ceiling and the sky through the roof. Stacks of magazines and gizmos and gadgets from an earlier era constantly bumped into me without so much as an “excuse me.” Behind the stove, a cache of 1981 newspapers peeked out of their hiding place. Amid the madness, a meticulous ordering of the former occupant’s life revealed itself on yellow post-it notes detailing a day’s mundane activities down to

And, yes, a great deal deadlier than the “assault weapons” some people are so obsessed with banning lately.

New York Magazine is taking a harsh swipe at President Trump with its new cover depicting the president as a pig. The April 2 issue of the magazine features a close-up photo of Trump with a pig´s snout replacing his nose. "Not Collusion... Not Incompetence... Not Cruelty...

After months of the liberal media ridiculing Trump over his claim that Obama spied on him during the election, Trump finally got vindication this week. America learned the truth on Tuesday that Obama did in fact unconstitutionally spy on Trump throughout the presidential election, leaving Barack Obama with his pants down yet again. Now former intelligence officer Lt. Col Tony Shaffer just revealed that Obama’s wiretapping was not only a federal crime, but says that the results of this investigation will likely result in Obama being brought up on FELONY CHARGES.

South African anti-apartheid campaigner Winnie Madikizela-Mandela has died aged 81, her personal assistant says. Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was the former wife of South Africa´s first black president, Nelson Mandela. The couple - famously pictured hand-in-hand as Mr Mandela walked free from prison after 27 years - were a symbol of the anti-apartheid struggle for nearly three decades. However, in later years her reputation became tainted legally and politically. Family spokesman Victor Dlamini said Mrs Mandela "succumbed peacefully in the early hours of Monday afternoon surrounded by her family and loved ones"

Newspaper and television headlines are blunt instruments that leave little room for nuance. Throw in the ­anti-Trump bias and it’s no surprise that nearly all media followed the same simplistic thinking to describe Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision on whether to appoint a second special counsel. His answer was “no,” the chorus declared, case closed. Par for its partisan course, The New York Times twisted the knife, saying “Sessions Spurns GOP.” Maybe, maybe not. The truth is that Sessions’ decision is far more complex than reports suggest. In fact, the good news is that the process he set in motion

In its newsletters and magazines, in congressional testimony and on its website, AARP warns seniors about deceptive direct mail and other dubious marketing come-ons as part of its mission to protect members from financial abuses. But the huge lobbying group’s own aggressive efforts to coax seniors to join or renew their memberships also have drawn a burst of criticism this year. Angry members say AARP’s barrage of solicitation letters and social media posts can mislead or confuse aging consumers, some of whom struggle with memory and managing their financial affairs.

With the U.S. Census Bureau reporting yet another year of population loss for the city, it doesn’t take an investigator to determine the causes. The city’s scary record of 343 homicides in 2017 affirms the city’s well-known reputation as a dangerous place to live. Even if 2018 has fewer homicides, it doesn’t take a fortune teller to predict that this year’s homicide rate will be high. Until the city substantially reduces its homicide and other crimes rates, people will continue to view the city as dangerous and be reluctant to stay or move here.
