Obama cyber chief confirms ´stand down´ order
against Russian cyberattacks in summer 2016

Yahoo News, by Michael Isikoff

WASHINGTON — The Obama White House’s chief cyber official testified Wednesday that proposals he was developing to counter Russia’s attack on the U.S. presidential election were put on a “back burner” after he was ordered to “stand down” his efforts in the summer of 2016. The comments by Michael Daniel, who served as White House “cyber security coordinator” between 2012 and January of last year, provided his first public confirmation of a much-discussed passage in the book, “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” co-written by this reporter and David Corn,

Didn´t Obama tell the American people that there was NO Russian hacking or influence in the election?

Tinfoil hat theory: Is it possible that Hillary through her personal server was directly in contact with someone in Russia. 33,000 emails that were destroyed in defiance of the law tells me there´s something very large and damning in those communications.

So this whole thing was a far more coordinated attack against a potentially new President than what was originally thought. So, what IF hILLary had won, what would she have done with this Russian intervention in our election? Would she have used it to turn the screws on Vlad and force him and his billionaire friends to donate more money to Clinton "charities" worldwide? Would she have then shrugged it off and not brought U.S. sanctions against Russia? Evil Democrats always construct things so they can have it both ways. When you lie and ignore the rule of law, you can get away with murder... as the Clinton´s clearly have.

I´m tired of the spin. I´m throwing the BS flag on everyone. FTA "They came during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing into how the Obama administration dealt with Russian cyber and information warfare attacks in 2016, an issue that has become one of the more politically sensitive subjects in the panel’s ongoing investigation into Russia’s interference in the U.S. election and any links to the Trump campaign.".

Why is it always the" Russia´s interference...any links to Trump" and not simply "Russia´s interference in the election" or "Russia´s interference in the election...any links to Hillary campaign". I think time has proven that if there was anything going on in the campaigns it was all in Hillary´s corner.

BS flag is thrown and on the field...

A Conservative Court Push Decades in the
Making, With Effects for Decades to Come
New York Times, by Peter Baker    Original Article

WASHINGTON — President Trump’s selection of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court on Monday culminates a three-decade project unparalleled in American history to install a reliable conservative majority on the nation’s highest tribunal, one that could shape the direction of the law for years to come. All of the years of vetting and grooming and lobbying and list-making by conservative legal figures frustrated by Republican appointees who drifted to the left arguably has come down to this moment, when they stand on the precipice of appointing a fifth justice who, they hope, will at last establish a bench

A Worthy Pick
National Review Online, by Editors    Original Article

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s new nominee for the Supreme Court, is a whip-smart legal conservative. As a judge in the highest-profile appeals court in the nation, he has shown an exemplary dedication to the rule of law. He has defended the separation of powers against threats coming from multiple directions. He has repeatedly cautioned his colleagues on the bench not to attempt to play a legislative role. He has also insisted on enforcing constitutional structures of accountability on government agencies. He has vindicated the right to free speech (against certain campaign-finance regulations), to bear arms (against the D.C.

Six senators to watch in the battle

The president’s choice of Brett Kavanaugh to serve as the next justice on the Supreme Court sets off a months-long confirmation process that will ultimately be decided by a critical group of senators. In a Senate with 50 voting Republicans and 49 who vote as Democrats, Kavanaugh can be scuttled if just one Republican votes "no," but can be saved if every "no" from a Republican is met with at least one "yes" by a Democrat. That means every vote matters, especially among a handful of Republicans and Democrats who have the potential to vote with the other party. Here’s who to

In the viciously cynical American political environment where we now live, it no longer is about quality and competence, skills and ability. It is about destruction of the opponent: destroy them, their character, their children, their family. Just destroy them. For example, let’s show pictures of a girl crying at the southern border when her mother puts her down for a moment — and then let’s tweet that we hope that the President’s child gets kidnapped and sexually abused. Let’s destroy that kid. Let’s destroy Melania. She never hurt anyone. Seems a really decent person. Many women that famous, that rich




San Francisco’s crisis looks

“A major medical association is pulling its annual convention out of the city — saying its members no longer feel safe,” reports the San Francisco Chronicle. It’s a loss of approximately $40 million dollars for the city and a warning to other cities with similar policies, like New York: You could be next. Beautiful, hilly San Francisco has become known as the city where 20 pounds of poop were dumped on a sidewalk last week in a clear bag and remained there for hours. As The Post noted, “human waste-related complaints in San Francisco have skyrocketed 400 percent from 2008

The FBI has slowly been producing documents to the DOJ Inspector General and various Congressional committees. As the process continues, more information comes out about the FBI’s attempt to cement the 2016 presidential election for Hillary Clinton. This piece by John Solomon in The Hill is two days old, but I don’t think it has received as much attention as it deserves. Solomon’s reporting evidently is based on information from sources in Congressional committees or perhaps the FBI or the IG’s office. The memos show Strzok, Lisa Page and others in counterintelligence monitored news articles in September 2016 that quoted a

Supreme Court Fallout: Calif. Teachers Sue
Unions to Recoup Unconstitutional ´Agency Fees´

Justice is coming for unions that forced non-members to pay "non-political" agency fees that went to prop up Democratic candidates. Last month, the Supreme Court ruled that forcing workers who disagree with a union to make these payments anyway violates the workers´ First Amendment rights. Less than a week after that ruling, Janus v. Association of Federal, State, City, and Municipal Employees (FSCME), seven California teachers have filed a class-action lawsuit to recoup unjustly forced fees. "This lawsuit will enable teachers like me to recover the agency fees that we were wrongly forced to pay against our will," Scott Wilford, the plaintiff

Mueller´s ´Pit Bull´ Arranged Meeting With

Justice Department documents released on Friday confirm that the DOJ attorney known as Robert Mueller’s “pit bull” arranged a meeting with journalists in April 2017 to discuss an investigation into Paul Manafort. The documents show that Andrew Weissmann arranged a meeting with DOJ and FBI officials and four Associated Press reporters on April 11, 2017, just over a month before Mueller was appointed special counsel. Manafort’s lawyers obtained the documents on June 29 and revealed them in a briefing filed in federal court in Virginia. The attorneys are pushing for a hearing into what they say are possible leaks of secret grand

Today, a massive movement of “anti-violence” protesters blocked traffic across a major Chicago highway in an effort to shutdown the road and call for "commonsense" gun laws. Mayor Rahm Emanuel had initially disapproved, then approved of the group’s plan to march on the Dan Ryan Highway, but Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner claims today that the group moved beyond what it was permitted to do. The march is led by Rev. Michael Pfleger, an Illinois Roman Catholic priest who advocates liberation theology, and the left-wing Rev. Jesse Jackson.

Selecting the Next Justice: The McConnell Factor

The word today, for what it’s worth, is that President Trump is still undecided about whom to nominate to the Supreme Court, and that four judges are in the running. The candidates are said to be Raymond Kethledge, Brett Kavanaugh, Thomas Hardiman, and Amy Coney Barrett. Hardiman, by the way, was said to be Trump’s second choice when he nominated Neal Gorsuch. (Snip)For me, the key is selecting a confirmable nominee from among this stellar group. To do so, it’s worth considering the views of the man who will spearhead the confirmation battle, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Abolishing ICE is not a serious policy proposal
Washington Post, by Jeh Johnson    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/8/2018 4:52:11     Post Reply
“Abolish ICE” makes for a good rallying cry on the left. Demanding the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency also provides President Trump with a useful weapon for bludgeoning Democrats politically. He has said as much, and a good portion of the American public will listen to him. I recently wrote here to condemn the administration’s now-abandoned practice of separating children from their migrant parents. Now I write to oppose calls to abolish ICE. The reality is that abolishing ICE is not a serious policy proposal; it’s about as serious as the claim that Mexico’s “gonna pay for the wall.” Elections

WASHINGTON — Democratic senators running for re-election in Trump Country face an agonizing choice over President Trump’s coming Supreme Court nominee: Vote to confirm the pick and risk demoralizing Democratic voters ahead of the midterm elections, or stick with the party and possibly sacrifice their own seats — and any chance at a Democratic majority in 2019. The actions of a handful of Senate Democrats struggling to hold their seats in red states where Mr. Trump remains popular — notably Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Donnelly of Indiana and Joe Manchin III of West Virginia — will have broad implications

Hillary Clinton has ramped her public presence and her fundraising appeals in recent weeks, leading to speculation she´s plotting her 2020 comeback and preparing for a rematch with Donald Trump. The New York Post notes that five times in the last month alone, Clinton sent e-mails touting her super PAC´s role in combating Trump. Most seized on headline-of-the-day type events, such as migrant children being separated from their families. Under the message line, ´horrific,´ Clinton wrote on June 18 about Trump´s controversial ´zero tolerance´ immigration policy: ´This is a moral and humanitarian crisis.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal says President Trump has become the “puppet” of outside conservative groups in the selection of the next U.S. Supreme Court justice. “The president’s outsourced this decision to the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation,” Mr. Blumenthal said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “It is extraordinary. I was a law clerk to Justice Blackmon. I’ve argued cases before the Supreme Court—four of them. I’ve never seen a president of the United States in effect make himself a puppet of outside groups and choose from a group of right-wing fringe ideologues that are prepared on this list.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is aggressively lobbying President Trump for a Supreme Courtpick such as Judge Raymond Kethledge who does not have a record of conservative opinions that would turn off liberals. Breitbart News has learned that, in private conversations with left-leaning reporters, McConnell is pushing the notion that Judge Raymond Kethledge will be unlikely to raise the ire of his Senate colleagues, potentially sparing him a confirmation battle in an election year. “McConnell has said he does not want a SCOTUS battle in an election year,” a source familiar with McConnell’s off-the-record

Just one day before President Trump is set to announce his pick to replace retiring Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy in a primetime address from the White House, a top Democratic senator suggested that stopping the nominee is more important than the upcoming midterm elections. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., acknowledged that so-called red-state Democrats may be tempted to vote for Trump´s selection out of political necessity, but urged his colleagues Sunday to consider more than their political careers. "Beyond the procedure, beyond the gamesmanship, it is a life-and-death important decision to be made by this court on so many

Though they won’t admit it, Democrats are suffering continued fallout from the arrogance of the Obama White House. Liberals are furious that President Trump will have the opportunity to appoint another justice to the Supreme Court, thus cementing a conservative majority for the foreseeable future. Moreover, liberals are upset that the Trump administration may have convinced Justice Anthony Kennedy to recently announce his retirement, viewing that effort as dirty pool. That Kennedy, age 81, is nobody’s fool – and is unlikely to have been manipulated – appears irrelevant. The real offense, which actually merits outrage from the left, is that

Once again, every potential replacement for Anthony Kennedy promises a "hardcore conservative majority." On All Things Considered on June 27, she broke out the warnings: Nina Totenberg: And because the Supreme Court itself is now more divided than ever between Democratic and Republican appointees, a Trump-named successor is likely to tip the balance decidedly to the right,
