Watch: Gowdy Grills Comey: You Know
People Who Leak Go To Prison, Right?
Daily Wire, by Hank Berrien    Original Article
Posted By: Lalo- 3/20/2017 6:01:41 PM     Post Reply
On Monday, Representative Trey Gowdy targeted FBI Director James Comey over the leaks coming from the intelligence community regarding former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, saying bluntly, “The felonious dissemination of classified material most definitely is a crime.” Gowdy began by asking Comey if there is an exception in the law for current or former U.S. officials who request anonymity. Comey said there was, but when Gowdy amended the question to ask if reporters were granted such an exemption, Comey said, “That´s a harder question, as to whether a reporter incurs criminal liability by publishing classified information, and one probably beyond

Of all the security threats facing the U.S. today, cyber threats are among the most pernicious. Thankfully, the administration is taking some concrete steps to confront them. Last week, the Justice Department indicted four individuals on charges relating back to the 2016 hack into Yahoo’s network which compromised at least 500 million user accounts. Of those indicted, two are officers of the Russian Federal Security Service, an agency very similar in function to the United States’ FBI. According to remarks made by Acting Assistant Attorney General Mary McCord, the Russian officers “protected, directed, facilitated and paid criminal hackers to collect

Judge Neil Gorsuch’s former law student who is accusing the Supreme Court nominee of encouraging firms to engage in sexist and possibly illegal hiring practices has close ties to the Democratic Party, The Daily Signal has learned. Jennifer Sisk, a 2016 graduate of the University of Colorado Law School, wrote a scathing letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Sunday. In the letter, Sisk detailed her account of Gorsuch’s telling his law students that “many” women manipulate their employer’s maternity benefits after giving birth. Multiple media outlets including NBC News, NPR, and Think Progress first reported on this allegation without any mention

Video footage from cameras stationed outside the New England Patriots locker room at Houston´s NRG Stadium captured the man accused of stealing Tom Brady´s jersey before and after he swiped the $500,000 prize. Fox Sports obtained footage showing the man as he walked into the locker room behind Bill Belichick at 10:04pm with a bag on his shoulder and appearing as if he were a member of the team. He did not exit the locker room until 14 minutes later at 10:18pm, at which point he could be seen with a shirt under his arm. That man has now been

WASHINGTON — A network of some of the nation’s wealthiest Democratic donors is weighing providing money and support to several of the new activist groups that have cropped up since Election Day to challenge President Trump and his agenda. Organizers of January’s Women’s March on Washington and leaders of Indivisible will make presentations later this week to the Democracy Alliance when the influential donor coalition holds its private spring meeting in Washington, the group’s president Gara LaMarche said.

Supreme Court needs judges like Gorsuch

Washington Examiner, by Editorial    Original Article

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., last Wednesday dragged out his feeble effort to block Neil Gorsuch´s confirmation to the Supreme Court. Ahead of today´s confirmation hearing, he trotted out three people, representing supposed "victims" of Gorsuch´s jurisprudence. He hoped to demonstrate that Gorsuch is hostile toward workers and cancer patients, and takes the side of "the powerful" and corporations against the "powerless" little guy. Never mind that in all three cases, one of which was decided unanimously by a three judge panel that included one of former President Bill Clinton´s appointees, Gorsuch scrupulously applied the text of the laws as

Gorsuch Gets Boost From Democrats In Hearings

Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court got a boost from two Democrats who testified before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, as deep partisan entrenchment emerged during Monday’s hearings. Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet and former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal, an Obama-appointee, appeared before the committee to praise Gorsuch’s record. Katyal urged Democrats to support the nomination, while Bennet was more circumspect. Bennet is under intense pressure from Colorado’s legal establishment to vote for his fellow home-stater. Though he stopped short of announcing his support for Gorsuch, he did reiterate his support for a full hearing and

The UniParty Congressional Swamp’s
Meaningless Political FBI/NSA Hearing…
Conservative Tree House, by Sundance    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/20/2017 4:30:23 PM     Post Reply
The Congressional Intelligence Committee hearing today was everything we anticipated it would be. Which is to say it was: insufferable political posturing, pandering and circular parseltongue swirling the drain of non-intellectual gobbledygook. These types of congressional hearings are perfect feed pellets for media pundits to blather endlessly, wax philosophically, and engage in long-winded academic esoteric analyses contrasting the implied meanings of stop signs. However, they are ridiculous for all other purposes. That said, against the backdrop of the espoused intention, and with full acceptance of the historic UniParty Benghazi hearings driven intentionally into the pit of nothingness, prayerfully I’m not

The day after a tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women went public in October, Matt Schlapp, the chairman of the American Conservative Union, appeared on Fox News to defend him. A minute after his segment ended, his wife and fellow pundit, Mercedes, called to say it might be time to take a break from television. Matt had done a fine enough job. He looked great — white teeth, whiter hair, purple tie, comfy physique of a lobbyist who enjoys a good happy hour. He had signaled his continued support for the GOP nominee while also denouncing as “repugnant” his

Warren Changes Media Strategy

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has changed her media strategy amid low poll numbers in her home state by making herself more available to the press in Massachusetts. Warren´s "creative media-dodging habits are a running joke among her home-state press corps," Politico reported over the weekend. "Whenever the senator makes a public appearance, Massachusetts reporters know to keep one eye fixed on the exit doors." (Snip) A poll conducted in mid-January revealed that 46 percent of Massachusetts voters are ready to vote Warren out of office. Thirty-seven percent of poll respondents also said they disapprove of Warren. The senator may be working

Various media outlets have published articles claiming that the Trump administration´s federal budget will eliminate funding for the Meals on Wheels program, whose volunteer drivers deliver hot meals to senior Americans across the country. But the federal budget is cutting funds to a federal grant program that provides just three percent of the Meals on Wheels revenue budget, and the program will still receive significant federal funding. Articles like the Hill´s "Trump proposed budget eliminates funds for Meals on Wheels," or the Huffington Post´s, "#LetThemDie: ‘Heartless’ Donald Trump Blasted For Slashing Meals On Wheels Funds," have been shared thousands of

John Rivello was arrested Friday months after he allegedly sent a tweet that caused journalist Kurt Eichenwald to suffer a seizure. This arrest appears to be the first of its kind and presents serious implications for the world of internet trolling, which seeks to annoy fellow users. Eichenwald’s attorney Steven Lieberman and cyber jurisprudence expert Peter Stephenson told The Daily Caller Sunday they are unaware of any similar cases where an internet message or posting causing bodily harm and resulted in an arrest.

Professor Hans Joachim Schellnhuber (shown) wants to take us back to the Stone Age — literally. In a March 15 interview with the German newspaper Deutsche Welle, the German physicist declared that global warming is so serious that not only must we all give up the use of coal and our internal combustion vehicles in the next 13 years, but we must also ditch concrete and steel — for “wood, clay and stone.” If we don’t do this, along with other drastic measures, we are headed toward planetary warming of “4, 5, 6 or even 12 degrees,” he claims.

Approximately 30 countries are refusing to accept the deportations of illegal immigrants who have committed serious crimes in the U.S., according to Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar. While these countries are refusing to accept the deportations of these criminals, the U.S. government is still issuing visas and student visas to citizens of those countries, according to the Texan congressman. There is already a law on the books which allows the U.S. to hold visas from a country that is not taking back its criminals, but according to Cuellar, the U.S. is not enforcing it. “We’re not enforcing it, which is amazing.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba/OTTAWA - Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday. (Snip) There has been broad bipartisan support for high levels of legal immigration for decades in Canada. But Trudeau has come under pressure over the flow of the illegal migrants. He is questioned about it every time he appears in parliament, from opponents on the left, who want more asylum-seekers to be allowed in, and

Headlines about “the end of the republic” litter political commentary across the political landscape. They usually mark the beginning of a discussion of the merits of Donald Trump as president of the United States, but his ascendency is not the leading sign of a collapse of American society. For that, see a recent poll indicating a tectonic shift occurring in the political preferences of U.S. adults. When you consider current trends in cultural norms and widely held beliefs, you will see that we are headed toward the end of the American experiment.

Supreme Court refuses to dismiss

The Supreme Court has rejected Sen. Bob Menendez´s attempt to throw out the bribery and corruption charges against him, setting the stage for a trial for the New Jersey Democrat this fall. With Monday´s announcement, Menendez can no longer block the proceedings against him from moving forward, a major setback for his efforts to avoid criminal trial. Abbe Lowell, Menendez´s lead defense attorney, said the Supreme Court´s decision not to hear the appeal was "disappointing," but still said Menendez will be "vindicated when all the facts are heard at trial." "It´s disappointing that the Supreme Court did not take this opportunity to set

When I was growing up in Greenville, Mississippi, departed members of the community rated either a news obituary or a simple death notice in the Delta Democrat Times. If fortunate, the deceased might receive a further sendoff in the form of a much-coveted mention in Brodie Crump´s "Old Stuff" column. Simple and tasteful. Everybody knew what to do. Death, like everything else, is so much more complicated today, including and especially the important matter of one´s obituary. The lengthy, paid obituary has replaced the courtesy obituary or very brief paid notice that small-town newspapers in the South, as I remember it,

The Supreme Court has dashed Robert Menendez’ last hope to prevent the first trial of a sitting US Senator for corruption since Ted Stevens in 2008 (which was posthumously vacated). The top court refused to take the appeal of a Third District appellate ruling that refused to overturn Menendez’ April 2015 indictment on the basis of constitutional privilege under the Speech or Debate Clause. That leaves the door open to a trial in the fall, just as the three-term incumbent ramps up an expected re-election campaign in the midterms: The Supreme Court has rejected Sen.

FBI Director James Comey, in an extraordinary House hearing meant to clear the air on a host of allegations relating to the 2016 campaign, confirmed publicly for the first time Monday that the bureau is probing Russian meddling in the race including possible “links” to the Trump team – while disputing the president’s claim that his predecessor wiretapped him. The FBI director was called to testify alongside National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers for a public session of the House intelligence committee. Comey’s testimony could serve to fuel tensions with the White House, which maintains there’s no evidence of Trump-Russia

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Monday accused Democrats of making up allegations that Russia interfered in last year´s election, and said Congress and the FBI should be going after media leaks instead. His tweets came just hours before a potentially politically damaging hearing in which FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers planned to testify on allegations of Russian hacking and whether there were any connections between Moscow and Trump´s campaign. “The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign.

David Rockefeller, the U.S. banker, philanthropist, presidential adviser and heir to one of history’s most fabled fortunes, has died. At 101, he was the world’s oldest billionaire. He died Monday at his home in Pocantico Hills, New York, according to an emailed statement from Fraser P. Seitel, a family spokesman. The cause was congestive heart failure. Rockefeller was the youngest and last-surviving grandson of Standard Oil founder John D. Rockefeller, the nation’s first billionaire. He was the only one of John D.

Americans love a good story. Pop culture is littered with the fictional tales of heroic characters. The majority of stories today still follow a three-act structure that dates back to Aristotle. Epic films start with the hero called to action in the first act; then the tension rises in the second (how will our hero get out of this situation?); and finally, in the third act, a resolution. By the end, the hero will have achieved his victory (normally) but he will also be changed in some fundamental way before the story is over. Unfortunately for us, this reality has followed
