Trump´s anger boils over with Russia probe
The Hill, by Jordan Fabian    Original Article
Posted By: bemused conservative- 2/18/2018 4:36:13 PM     Post Reply
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — President Trump vented his anger with the Russia investigation late Saturday night and Sunday morning, declaring that “they are laughing their asses off in Moscow” over the ongoing probe into Moscow’s interference in the 2016 election. In a remarkable burst of tweets sent from his Mar-a-Lago resort, the president blamed the Obama administration for not doing enough to deter Russia and claimed he never denied the meddling took place — all while undercutting his own national security adviser who said Saturday that the interference is now “beyond dispute.” “If it was the GOAL of Russia

Florida Agency Investigated Nikolas
Cruz After Violent Social Media Posts

PARKLAND, Fla. — A Florida social services agency conducted an in-home investigation of Nikolas Cruz after he exhibited troubling behavior nearly a year and a half before he shot and killed 17 people at his former high school in Florida, a state report shows. The agency, the Florida Department of Children and Families, had been alerted to posts on Snapchat of Mr. Cruz cutting his arms and expressing interest in buying a gun, according to the report. But after visiting and questioning Mr. Cruz at his home, the department determined he was at low risk of harming himself or others.

Nikolas Cruz showed no warning signs

The couple who took in school massacre suspect Nikolas Cruz months before last week’s Florida shooting said they had a “monster living under our roof" but saw no warning signs the night before the bloodbath — despite the 19-year-old’s history of trouble in school, reports said. In an interview with the Sun-Sentinel on Saturday, James and Kimberly Snead said they never saw the violent side of Cruz, but recognized that the 19-year-old was depressed about his mother, who died in November. The couple had opened their home to Cruz, who was staying with a family friend, at their son’s request.

Trump: Democrats Could Have Passed
Gun Control Under Obama
Daily Wire, by Joseph Curl    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/18/2018 1:21:07 PM     Post Reply
President Trump went a Twitter rage on Saturday night, and at one point blamed Democrats for failing to pass gun control measures when the party controlled the House, the Senate and the White House. Under former president Barack Obama, Democrats passed the most sweeping reform to health care in history with the now-disastrous Affordable Care Act. That bill passed without a single Republican vote when Democrats had a "super majority" in the Senate with 60 Democrats. "Just like they don’t want to solve the DACA problem, why didn’t the Democrats pass gun control legislation when they had both the House

Los Angeles — It was dicey being Jewish in a Russia that was tolerant of pogroms, and then came the threat of conscription into the 1904–05 Russo-Japanese War, so one of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s great-grandfathers headed west to America. Another Garcetti great-grandfather married a Mexican woman who, fleeing revolutionary ferment there, headed north to America. Which is why Garcetti, a fourth-generation resident of the world’s most polyglot city, is as American as a kosher burrito, a delicacy available at Mexikosher on Pico Boulevard. Trim, natty — colorful socks are, alas, fashionable — and with the polish of one born to

Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., who took great exception to Trump saying out loud what most rational minded Americans are already thinking when it comes to the FBI.

Ever since the McCarthy era, hasn´t it been a cultural norm from the left to holler about the U.S. becoming a police state? A police state that spies on innocent Americans? One that represses free speech and imposes thought which in reality is little different from a Soviet-style totalitarian police state? Aren´t camps around the corner for the U.S., too? Hasn´t the dark night of fascism been always descending over the United States (for decades), to paraphrase Tom Wolfe, yet lands only in Europe?

President Donald Trump reacted to the news that House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Adam Schiff blamed former President Barack Obama for not taking the Russian hacking attempt more seriously.“Finally, Liddle’ Adam Schiff, the leakin’ monster of no control, is now blaming the Obama Administration for Russian meddling in the 2016 Election,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “He is finally right about something. Obama was President, knew of the threat, and did nothing. Thank you Adam!” Schiff said that although he respected the Obama administration, he felt that they did not do enough to stop the Russians. “While I respect the motive

Asked once whether he believed in God, French president Emmanuel Macron replied, “That’s a real question, a complex question. I undoubtedly believe in a transcendence. I am not sure any more that I believe in a God. Yes, I believe in transcendence.” Another real and complex question for him to answer is that regarding the relationship of the French Republic with Islam. France is a militantly secular country whose militancy has seemed only to grow stronger as the Church grows weaker. France rejects all connection between religion and state; in the mouth of a French intellectual, the words très catho (very

On the evening of February 14, I wrote a post called “Senate May Be Perilously Close to Passing Liberal Amnesty Legislation.” The legislation in question was sponsored by the so-called Common Sense Coalition, consisting of eight Republican Senators (Alexander, Collins, Gardner, Graham, Flake, Isakson, Murkowski, and Rounds), seven Democrats, and one Independent. It granted amnesty for nearly two millions “Dreamers” and funded a wall. It did nothing about the diversity lottery and nothing meaningful about chain migrations. The legislation also told the Executive Branch how it should prioritize immigration enforcement. For illegal immigrants guilty only of “unlawful presence,” immigration officers were to

1. It´s getting late: The recovery from the Great Recession is already one of the longest economic expansions in American history. And recently the economic cycle has gone from humming along to booming. Unemployment is down to a 17-year low, small business sentiment is roaring, and economic growth hit the 3% mark twice last year. But economic expansions don´t last forever. A recession comes along eventually and ruins the party. Wall Street is already pondering the demise of this recovery, which in May would become the second-longest in history. Most economists and investors believe the U.S. economy is either in

Pyeongchang - The moment, when it happened, felt routine to American slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, who along with figure skater Adam Rippon is the only openly gay male Winter Olympian to ever compete for the United States. Matthew Wilkas, Kenworthy’s boyfriend, gave Kenworthy a good-luck kiss before a qualifying run on Sunday in South Korea. “That was like a peck,” Wilkas, who wore a “USGay” t-shirt to the event, tells TIME afterwards from the bottom of the slopestyle course at the Phoenix Snow Park. “We should have made out in front of people.” Kenworthy didn’t know the TV cameras caught

A few weeks ago, Aly Raisman came to public attention for doing a brave and noble thing: testifying in court against Larry Nassar, the USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University doctor who, over two decades, had sexually abused her and more than 160 other girls and women. Thanks in part to Raisman’s testimony, Nassar has been sentenced to 175 years in prison. The public may feel grateful to the young woman. Now we are hearing about Raisman again, although it is for a very different reason: She has chosen to appear naked in the new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Raisman was

Mueller has been slow-playing it for a while. I’m talking about the Russian operatives move – the indictments. They are largely baseless, a big overreach that amounts to allegations of talking down Hillary Clinton and talking up Donald Trump. If that were suddenly illegal almost the entire media complex would have to be indicted, right? Mueller is trying to paint

Tribalism is in our DNA. This innate tendency to adopt the beliefs and customs of the people around us was the glue that held together small bands of nomadic hunters and gatherers. Ancient humans with tribalism in their DNA survived in their tribe and propagated their DNA. Those without it didn´t and didn´t. It´s the natural product of human evolution. Managing ancient humans was not like herding cats. It was more like herding herds. Stray humans didn´t last long on the savanna. Later, tribalism enabled us to coalesce into towns and cities, and to defend our resulting civilizations. Even now, tribalism influences our

People are asking why didn´t the FBI follow up on the tips about the gunman who went on to kill 17 people at a high school in Florida? That´s the wrong question. We should ask: why didn´t the tipsters report their suspicions to the local police or sheriff´s office? Don´t get me wrong. The FBI screwed up. But after the review and congressional hearings, the politicians will scapegoat the director -- and decide the FBI needs more manpower. Thus, Congress will reward failure, and we will wind up with more failure. The solution is to not expand the federal police but rather to have the

Funny how the Olympic athletes who managed not to insult and offend us by their loudmouth anti-Trump grandstanding before the games seem to be the only ones who either win big medals or else win our hearts anyway.

[Snip] Then there were the bad sports, the attention-seekers, and worst of all, the anti-Trump loudmouths, who insulted us all with their anti-Trump remarks before they have even competed to show us what they could do in the 2018 Olympics.

Sanctuary cities are a near perfect example of how liberalism works. The local governments promise not to check ID. In turn, roughly 60% of the illegal aliens in this country now live in a sanctuary city. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency thanks those sanctuary cities for attracting the illegal aliens so ICE can arrest and deport them without having to do much searching. It is like throwing corn on the ground in front of the tree stand. Or so I have heard. "U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested 212 people and served notices to businesses in the Los Angeles area,

I have always prided myself on being an amateur historian, knowing far more than most people. So you can imagine my surprise when I found out, about ten years ago, that I knew nothing about one of the most important battles in world history, whose ramifications echo down to this day. This is the Battle of Cartagena de los Indias, fought between the Spanish and British empires off the coast of present-day Colombia in 1741. It was part of the War of Jenkin´s Ear, a war where Britain´s ultimate aim was to break the Spanish empire and impose a British hegemony

Nine months remain until what may be the most crucial midterm elections in our history. If Democrats prevail, the rabidly unhinged Nancy Pelosi returns as speaker of the House, third in the presidential line of succession behind Bush and Cheney (at least in her addled mind), and Chuck Schumer, increasingly a creature of the hard left, consummates his pact with the Devil to become majority leader. Assuming committee memberships look much as they do now, it´s bad news down ticket, too.
