Russian ex-spy possibly poisoned

A Russian ex-spy and his daughter may have been exposed to the deadly nerve agent that nearly killed them through his car’s ventilation system, according to a report Sunday. Former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, are still struggling to live after being poisoned with Russian-produced Novichok in Salisbury two weeks ago. ABC News reported that U.K. officials believe that the toxin was used in a dust-like powdered form and that it circulated through the vents of Skripal’s BMW. Three intelligence officials said that the Russian military origin and the nature of the “dusty” substance are clear to them, according

I fear for President Trump´s life if the Norks have access to this stuff.

The great thing about the Russians is that they kill each other off in greater rapidity than they procreate, which has left their population total at 148 million, and dropping.

They keep implying that it was the russians who did this, without any proof. They refuse to submit anything for analysis. What is left out of most news reports is that Skripal had ties to Steele and was planning to return to Russia, where he was supposedly going to tell all about the "russian dossier." Russia had nothing to gain and no reason to do this. Others in the U.S. and Britain did.

This weekend I noticed a fine yellow powder emanating from my cars air vents blowing right into my eyes. In a nearby pine tree I saw a bird land on a branch and a cloud of yellow powder rained down. Tis the season for pine trees to reproduce and I don´t think the Russians have anything to do with it.

Mueller at the Crossroads
Tribune Content Agency, LLC, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article

Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel in May 2017 in reaction to a media still gripped by near hysteria over the inexplicable defeat of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. For nearly a year before Mueller´s appointment, leaks had spread about collusion between Russia and the Donald Trump campaign that supposedly cost Clinton a sure victory. Most of these collusion stories, as we now know, originated with Christopher Steele and his now-discredited anti-Trump opposition file. After almost a year, Mueller has offered no evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians. Aside from former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, a few minor and

It’s finally the end of

JOHANNESBURG — Legal experts say Olympian Oscar Pistorius has finally run out of options to appeal his 13-year prison sentence for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp. South Africa’s highest court dismissed Pistorius’ request to review the sentence on Monday, bringing a close to a five-year legal saga surrounding the man who was once one of the world’s most celebrated athletes. “There is nothing they can do,” said Pierre de Vos, a constitutional law expert at the University of Cape Town. Last year, the Supreme Court of Appeal more than doubled Pistorius’ six-year sentence for the murder of Steenkamp,




The 2016 election broke some people in media

The 2016 election broke certain members of the media, particularly the progressive culture warriors. President Trump is such a repudiation of their worldview, and such a brutal contrast to their deeply held beliefs, that they can barely comprehend he won, let alone accept he did it legitimately. Rather than confront difficult realities — that they are not the dominating political force in this country and that a significant percentage of the electorate rejects their ideals — some progressive media types have locked themselves away in loops, theorizing ad infinitum about all-powerful bogeymen and far-reaching foreign conspiracies. Many fantasize about the one

Paul Ryan´s exit marks another
triumph of Trumpism

House Speaker Paul Ryan has fashioned himself around many identities throughout what’s already been a long career in Washington. He’s been a policy warrior, a budget guru, a committee chairman, a vice presidential candidate, a public foe of an unconventional GOP presidential nominee, and – finally and perhaps fatefully – the man who would shepherd the Trump agenda into law. He didn’t want to be Tom Foley. Foley was House Speaker in 1994 when a Republican wave ended four decades of Democratic control of the House of Representatives. Foley, D-Wash., lost his reelection race that year in a shocking upset,

Rosenstein lets Nunes, Gowdy review
FBI memo that kick-started Russia probe

Facing legal action, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein allowed House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., to view the FBI memo that instigated the bureau´s counterintelligence investigation of contacts between Russia and the Trump campaign, Nunes confirmed on Wednesday. The meeting came a day after Nunes threatened to take legal action -- including contempt proceedings and impeachment -- against Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray for failing to produce a clean copy of the memo, known as an electronic communication or EC, that was responsive to an August 2017 committee subpoena. "Although the subpoenas issued by

Every now and then, some article from two or three or ten years ago makes the rounds on social media, and sometimes you don´t notice that it´s old news until after you´ve read it and gotten all worked up about it. Such was my experience the other day when somebody on my Facebook feed posted a piece from the Atlantic called “The Case for Getting Rid of Borders—Completely.” I was about to bang out a response to this ridiculous screed, written by one Alex Tabarrok, when I noticed that it was dated October 10, 2015.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg told lawmakers Tuesday that he was "not specifically aware" of any instance where the social network had removed content posted by liberal groups amid concerns that the platform is biased against conservatives. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told Zuckerberg that "a great many Americans" are "deeply concerned that Facebook and other tech companies are engaged in a pervasive pattern of bias and political censorship." Cruz then ticked off a list of conservative content that he claimed had been "suppressed" by Facebook, "including stories about [2012 GOP presidential candidate] Mitt Romney [and] stories about the Lois Lerner

The far left will stop at nothing in their efforts to derail the presidency of Donald Trump. Still bitter about the outcome of 2016, the left claims much of their outrage toward the president is driven by his unpredictable personality, but ideological opposition to his administration’s reform-minded agenda is the real root of their anger. Nowhere is this more evident than the furor surrounding Scott Pruitt, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Trump’s opponents have seized on a number of recent unflattering news stories involving Pruitt and his agency. While admittedly not the best public relations for Pruitt,

When President Trump suddenly fired FBI director James Comey in May 2017, quite a few retired bureau officials eagerly defended Comey’s record as director, and denounced Trump’s abrupt, seemingly self-serving decision. But some of those same retired FBI agents are now turned off by the pugnacious, high-profile persona of the former director as he prepares to launch the book tour for his autobiography, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.(Snip)“He put the agency and himself directly in the spotlight, not a good place for us ever to be,” Chacon says. “It now appears that he enjoys the spotlight.”

Fox News is under a barrage of criticism from other news outlets and journalists who don´t like that President Trump is so close to the network and its star anchors. In recent days, critics have accused Fox of operating as a reinforcement mechanism for some of Trump´s more controversial policy positions. Sunday on CNN´s "Reliable Sources," host Brian Stelter pointed to Trump´s recent comments against illegal immigration, alleging that they were inspired by Fox programming and saying that the two together "is a symbol of everything that´s wrong" with how the administration functions.

umors have circulated for months that what will take Donald Trump down is not anything having to do with collusion with Russia but his business dealings before the election. Trump is compromised by all the deals he swung as a businessman, so the rumors assert. What may have flown under the radar in the private sector will come to light in public service and the scope of the Mueller investigation. Is the raid on Michael Cohen, Trump’s attorney, the beginning of the end for Trump? The offices of Michael Cohen have been raided, as has his home and his hotel room.

Scott wrote earlier about the FBI’s raid on the home and office of President Trump’s long-time lawyer, Michael Cohen. I want to add my own thoughts in a separate post. News reports indicate that the FBI raid resulted, at least in part, from a referral by Robert Mueller. The subject of the raid included “payments to the former porn actress known as Stormy Daniels.” Good going, Bob–you were assigned to investigate non-existent collusion between the Trump presidential campaign and the Russians, and now you’re down to liaisons with porn performers.

House Speaker Paul Ryan has privately told confidantes he does not plan to run for re-election this year, multiple reports said Wednesday. The Wisconsin Republican could announce his decision "soon," according to the news outlet. The GOP faces a tough fight to hold on to a House majority in November amid Democratic enthusiasm and opposition to some policies pushed by President Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress. Axios first reported Ryan´s decision. Ryan achieved his long-held goal of overhauling the U.S. tax code in December. Once he did so, he felt comfortable leaving a job that had become taxing due

Senate Republicans were surprised to learn Wednesday that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, plans to try to advance legislation that would prevent President Trump from firing special counsel Robert Mueller. A bipartisan group of four senators on Tuesday introduced a bill that would specifically prevent Trump from firing Mueller, whose investigation the president has labeled a "witch hunt." The bill would among other things, "ensure that the Special Counsel can only be fired for good cause by a senior Justice Department official, and the reason must be provided in writing." Some believe that only Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein can

LOS ANGELES — “Dreamer” Marco Villada Garibay left the country on the U.S. government’s promise of a possible green card. Now he’s trapped in Mexico and might never be allowed to return. Villada, 34, came to the United States — the only country he knows — illegally from Mexico at age 6. This is where he went to school; where he worked and paid taxes; and, most significantly, where he met his husband, Israel Serrato. “From the beginning,” Villada says, “I knew that Israel was my home, that that’s where I belong.” In 2013, Villada received protection from deportation under

Here’s an idea that wouldn’t survive the laughter in most U.S. communities. But this is California and more specifically, Los Angeles. So, local government is moving ahead with a plan to move some of the county’s exploding homeless populations off the streets and — wait for it — into your backyard. The idea is to build little homes or large huts, depending on your scale, in the backyard of willing homeowners. A kind of YIMBY — Yes In My Backyard. According to the county’s pilot program, rents to homeowners would be covered by government low-income housing vouchers with homeless tenants

Former FBI Director James Comey’s first media interview after being fired by President Trump last May will “shock the president and his team,” according to a source present at taping. Comey revealed things in the interview that he had never said before, the source told Axios. The source also said the interview would "certainly add more meat to the charges swirling around Trump." In the promo for the interview, which is set to air Sunday, Comey doesn’t say a word, but several questions asked of Comey were revealed, including whether he believes Trump should be impeached and if there was

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said Wednesday that she is concerned President Trump acts as though he is "above the law." Albright, who served under Bill Clinton, commented in her new book, "Fascism: A Warning," that Trump is seemingly the least democratic commander-in-chief she has seen. She said on "The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino" that Trump seems to lack respect for traditional democracy, particularly the First Amendment. "I am a great believer in Freedom of the Press. I think it´s very important. I think it´s exceptionally important for there to be discussions -- civil, good discussions," she said.

The Mark Zuckerberg who arrived at the Hart Senate Office Building on Tuesday afternoon very much resembled an adult. His hair was cut short. His dark-blue suit fit well. His presentation was polished, without glibness or arrogance. He said, “Yes, Senator” and “No, Senator,” with the slightly bemused deference of a curator giving a museum tour. The android-smooth forehead, now thirty-three years old, still appeared unmarked by age or adversity, but there were no flip-flops or pajamas this time; a small loosening of Zuckerberg’s Facebook-blue tie knot was his only variation from the Capitol’s accepted forms. Despite this evident preparation, Zuckerberg

Among its other consequences, Speaker Paul Ryan´s retirement from the House increases the chance that President Donald Trump will be impeached. Ryan´s decision accelerates the ongoing competition among his deputies to become the leader of the GOP in the House. But it will also dispirit fellow Republicans, diminish his ability to raise campaign funds and encourage more vulnerable incumbents to retire. All of that smooths the path for Democrats to recapture the House in November and hand Nancy Pelosi the speaker´s gavel once again. And there´s little doubt that a Democratic-controlled House would seek to impeach the president. That´s not

City officials in Los Angles want to help pay homeowners with extra space to put small accommodations in their backyards for homeless people. Los Angeles county has been facing a growing homeless population, and there are currently nearly 58,000 people without living shelter. Last month protests called ´Not in my backyard,´ blocked new homeless housing in Temple City and delayed it in Boyle Heights. The protests also killed a project in neighboring Orange County to relocate homeless people living on the streets into shelters. But now, a project has been approved that will pay people in the county to put up basic homes
