Manafort sues DOJ, Mueller
over Russia probe authority

CNN, by Evan Perez

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/3/2018 4:03:17 PM

Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman indicted on money laundering and other charges, filed a lawsuit challenging the broad authority of special counsel Robert Mueller and alleging the Justice Department violated the law in appointing Mueller. The suit brought Wednesday in US District Court in Washington where Manafort and another former Trump campaign aide are charged, challenges Mueller´s decision to charge Manafort with alleged crimes that they say have nothing to do with the 2016 campaign, but rather relate to lucrative lobbying work Manafort and his deputy did for a former Russia-friendly government in Ukraine. That work ended in 2014,

I have seen a photo of Manafort sticking a big wad of chewing gum under his desk.

A DOJ spokesman says the suit is frivolous. So let the District Court dismiss it. That will get it to the Supreme Court more quickly.

Fabulous! This will shake out Rosenschwein, Mueller, and Comey.
Troubled about Sessions. Why did he write into law again, following Holder, that Police, FBI, etc. can enter your home without a search warrant?
The way the FBI entered Manafort´s home in the middle of the night and bodily searched his wife, who was in bed, is something the Gestapo would do!

It looks like Mueller went a Millionaire too far.Manafort has the resources to cahllage Mueller and his witch hunt. And regardless how much the DOJ says its a frivolous suit (interesting, usually goobernment agencies say they don´t comment on ongoing suits. Why is this different?), Mueller and his staff will have to devote resources to defend themselves. And a judge just might aske for Mueller and his team to explain things. Like FISA data used to spy on Manafort and the fake dossier used to justify it. It could prve Mueller and his team are the real criminals. They will have to answer subpoenas and it will not be a toothless Congressional subpoena. I bet Mueller and his dmeigodd stafff never saw this coming.

Carol Hafner hopes to represent Alaska in Congress – even though she doesn’t live in the state nor does she plan to campaign there. Hafner, a Democrat running for Congress in Alaska’s primary, listed two addresses on her candidate filing form: one in New Jersey and one in South Dakota. While she considers South Dakota her home base, Hafner told The Associated Press that she travels a lot and has been in New Jersey to deal with an illness in the family. Hafner said she´s never been to Alaska and does not plan to campaign in person. But she felt compelled to run

77 Times Barack Obama Was Totally Wrong
Washington Free Beacon, by Andrew Kugle    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 7/19/2018 5:04:13     Post Reply
"What if we were wrong?" That is the question then-President Barack Obama asked as he rode along in his presidential limousine with his foreign policy guru Ben Rhodes. The question came in the aftermath of the surprise presidential election victory by political newcomer and television reality star Donald Trump. Obama questioned whether he and liberals had forgotten how important identity was to people and had pushed a progressive agenda too far, too quickly. Obama wasn´t only wrong in understanding where the electorate was in 2016 but was frequently wrong throughout his presidency. The following Washington Free Beacon supercut displays 77 instances when Obama

A liberal Berkeley friend teases me. She claims I’ve given up reading the New York Times because it runs too many stories about black people. She’s trying to trigger me. We still can joke. Not every leftist I know can, but even she can’t help noticing the Times news tilt in the age of Trump. Black suffering is a perennial Times weeper, yes, but it is nonstop injustice theater and intersectional theology that takes me somewhere else. Fixated on a narrow set of injustices, the Times is telling me how to think and what to care about. Its front webpage shifts

A sunken Russian warship believed to contain $130 billion in gold bullion and coins has been found off the coast of a South Korean island — 113 years after it was scuttled during the Russo-Japanese War, reports said. A joint team including South Korean, British and Canadian explorers on Sunday found the wreck of the Dmitrii Donskoi more than 1,400 feet below sea level and a mile off the coast of the South Korean island of Ulleungdo, according to CNBC. The Russian Imperial Navy cruiser was carrying about 5,500 boxes of gold bars and coins — weighing some 200 tons — when

Warren backing tribe´s luxury casino plan --

Brockton, Mass., is known as the birthplace of boxing legend Rocky Marciano. But with U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren pushing for a $1 billion Native American casino less than 20 miles away, struggling blue-collar Brockton´s competing casino bid might not stand a fighting chance. Brockton Mayor William Carpenter slammed Warren’s bill on behalf of the Masphee Wampanoag tribe, which would override a federal judge´s decision last year to block the tribe’s plan for a luxury gaming resort in East Taunton. He says Warren seems to be acting on behalf of special interests instead of people like Brockton´s struggling residents.

President Trump nominated his justice quickly; Republican senators need to act just as fast. If history tells us anything, it’s that they may not get another chance, even if Trump is re-elected in 2020. Clarence Thomas is now the only Supreme Court justice nominated by a president of one party and confirmed (narrowly) by a Senate controlled by the other party. The rest were appointed and confirmed in the brief periods when one party controlled both the White House and the Senate. Former President Barack Obama got Justice Elena Kagan and Justice Sonia Sotomayor through in the first half of his first

An art gallery in Portland, Oregon, removed a window drawing that depicts President Donald Trump being beheaded ISIS style. The founder of One Grand Gallery in the Northwest city told KPTV-TV that he took down the controversial drawing after threats from Trump supporters and a request from his landlord. The gallery founder asked to remain anonymous for fear that someone would try to harm him. The horrific image shows a man whose face is concealed holding Trump’s head with one hand. In the other hand, he is holding a knife to the throat of Trump, who is bleeding profusely from

Trump and Putin’s OJ-like search
for the ‘real’ meddling culprits
New York Post, by Benny Avni    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 7/17/2018 4:43:38     Post Reply
When did OJ become POTUS? President Trump told a Helsinki press conference Monday that Russian strongman Vladimir Putin has an “interesting idea” about resolving questions on election meddling in the 2016 election: create a joint American-Russian committee on inquiry. That is, Moscow and Washington will together investigate whether Russian agents were responsible for hacking the DNC computers, as a US prosecutor answerable to Trump alleged late last week. They’ll find who’s responsible for other election shenanigans, which Trump’s top intel officials believe to be Russia’s handiwork. In other words, Putin — like OJ Simpson after his acquittal — will be looking for the

The corporate owners of the Mandalay Bay casino filed suit against the victims of last year’s Las Vegas concert mass shooting, claiming it has no liability for the massacre, according to a published report on Monday. MGM Resorts International went to federal courts in Nevada and California and took on more than 1,000 shooting victims, saying claims against the hotel giant “must be dismissed.” “Plaintiffs have no liability of any kind to defendants,” the complaints argue, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Las Vegas lawyer Robert Eglet, who is representing several victims, told the paper that the hotel’s unusual action is a pre-emptive

U.S. immigration officials took aim at San Francisco’s sanctuary city law Monday in the case of the San Mateo man accused of being the “Rideshare Rapist.” In a statement, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said the city’s policy of not honoring ICE holds “shields criminal aliens who prey on the community.” The suspect, Orlando Vilchez Lazo, 36, is being held in jail in San Francisco in lieu of $4.2 million bail and faces life in prison in connection with the rapes of four women who got into his car believing him to be a ride-hail driver, police said.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. — A federal judge on Monday ordered a temporary halt to any deportations of immigrant families who were reunited after being separated by the Trump administration at the border. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw imposed a delay of at least a week after a request from the American Civil Liberties Union, which cited "persistent and increasing rumors ... that mass deportations may be carried out imminently and immediately upon reunification." Justice Department attorney Scott Stewart opposed the delay but did not address the rumors in court. He said he would respond later in writing. The judge gave the

Zyler, wearing rainbow leggings, scrutinized a pair of hot-pink-and-purple sneakers. Kadyn, in a T-Rex shirt, fixated on a musical cube that flashed colorful lights.

In every economic measurement, President Trump far out-performs President Obama. The mainstream media and Democrat Party continue to smear President Trump with the fake Russia collusion narrative. In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic.

Marina Gross, a State Department translator, was pictured along with Trump, Putin, and Putin´s translator at their Helsinki summit. Interest in her role has only grown, after furious critics accused Trump of ´treason´ for failing to push Putin publicly in any way at their Helsinki summit.

And that the FBI apparently ignored this information during its "investigation." The reaction by the press to this bombshell? Crickets.

Melania, who is a few inches taller than the ex-spy strongman, also smiles during the handshake in an apparently natural way.
