Rod Rosenstein has blasted James Comey and commentators on social media in the wake of the Justice Department inspector general's scathing report into the ex-FBI director's conduct. The former Deputy Attorney General took to Twitter to share a Justice Department letter stressing the importance to adhere to 'policies and procedures' after Comey was accused of breaking FBI policy. 'It is important for the Department of Justice to follow established policies and procedures, especially when the stakes are high,' he penned.(Snip) Rosenstein, who resigned in May, also criticized commentators on Twitter, who accused him of double standards.

At which point do we as a nation abandon the pretense that we're something other than a banana republic? We've got the crippling levels of public debt, raging inflation (hidden through clever accounting), a thoroughly corrupt lying media, a burgeoning populace of imported newcomers from the Third World who have no intention of adopting our native culture, and public officials who simply laugh at us after attempting to overthrow a duly elected president.

Why Ron, why is it important to adhere to policy at the FBI, DOJ, CIA or any other agency? These policies are apparently merely suggestions, with no penalty for non-adherence.

Apparently Rosenstein also signed off on the four FISA warrants and extensions on Carter Paige, base primarily on the Steel Dossier, which the FBI had been repeatedly informed by State Dept, DoJ and others was an unreliable, DNC funded, unverified mess. I think Mr. Rosenstein's hands are not anywhere near clean in this whole coup attempt.

Beto O’Rourke said he would implement a sweeping government buy-back policy for two types of assault rifles, including one commonly used in mass shootings across the US, if he were elected president in 2020. The Texas Democrat responded to questions on the campaign trail Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, about concerns the government would take assault weapons away from gun owners. According to a Buzzfeed News reporter, he said: “I want to be really clear that that’s exactly what we are going to do.” The candidate later shared that quote on Twitter, adding: "We need to buy back every single assault weapon."

Citing a national police official, The Associated Press reported that the man was a 33-year-old Afghan citizen who had applied for asylum in France and was awaiting a response. Officials said the attack, which took place in Villeurbanne, a suburb of Lyon in the southeastern part of France, was not terrorism related.

The FBI has revealed shocking details of a 19-year-old Queens man's alleged plans to carry out a lone wolf knife and bomb attack on the World's Fair Marina for ISIS. Awais Chudhary, 19, was arrested on Thursday in Queens as he picked up a 'tactical knife' and other supplies from an Amazon locker, following an undercover online sting operation. Chudhary, a Pakistani-born naturalized U.S. citizen, is being held without bail on a charge of attempting to provide material support to ISIS, a designated foreign terrorist organization.(Snip) Both locations are near Citi Field, where the New York Mets play, and the

Dior has deleted ads from its social media accounts promoting its Sauvage fragrance after it faced a backlash because of its use of Native American culture. A video on Twitter featuring a Native American dancer and an Instagram post explaining the campaign that was crafted with Native American consultants was deleted hours after the fashion house was called out for cultural misappropriation and being insensitive.

Mumps has swept through 57 immigration detention facilities in 19 states since September, according to the first US government report on the outbreaks in the overloaded immigration system. The virus sickened 898 adult migrants and 33 detention center staffers, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in its report Thursday. New cases continue as migrants are taken into custody or transferred between facilities, the report said. As of last week, outbreaks were happening in 15 facilities in seven states.(Snip) Cox said some detainees come from countries where communicable diseases are less controlled than in the US and carry with them

President Trump said Friday that the U.S. isn’t responsible for a “catastrophic” missile accident in Iran, but seemed to taunt Tehran by wishing Iranians “good luck” in finding the cause of the explosion. “The United States of America was not involved in the catastrophic accident during final launch preparations for the Safir SLV Launch at Semnan Launch Site One in Iran,” Mr. Trump tweeted. The president also posted a detailed photograph of the accident site that appeared to be taken by satellite. It is labeled with descriptions such as “damaged propellant burner trailer.” Mr. Trump tweeted over the photo of the heavily damaged

A beekeeper in Turkey who was harassed by a particularly persistent group of bears has discovered a profound truth: the animals have very expensive tastes when it comes to honey.

So he decided to set up recording equipment to track the bears and inadvertently embarked on animal testing of a different kind. Sedef set up four bowls;
'No gay gene' says major study, but

There is no such thing as a single “gay gene” researchers have said, but genetics–along with environmental factors–can influence a person’s sexual preferences. The largest ever study of its kind examined data and DNA information of about 500,000 people and found there were thousands of genetic variants linked to same-sex sexual behaviour, most of the them having a minor impact. The researchers said non-genetic factors, including upbringing, personality, and nurture, had far more influence on a person’s choice of sexual partner. The researchers, writing in Science, suggested genetics may account for as much as one-third of the various factors

Recent polls have shown that most Americans believe that homosexuals are “born that way” rather than become gay as the result of environmental factors. In fact, perpetuating the belief that sexual orientation is innate has been crucial to the gay rights movement. According to the most recent Gallup Poll on the subject, 88 percent of people who believe homosexuals are “born that way” support the legality of same-sex marriage, while only 39 percent of those who believe homosexuality is the result of environmental factors support the legality of same-sex marriage. So, what happens when science proves that homosexuals aren’t “born that way”?

Another Friday and another hamfisted attempt by the Drudge Report to undermine support for President Donald John Trump. A week ago, Matt Drudge was sure that the trade war with Red China was going to do The Donald in because the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down. A week before that Drudge had us in a recession not caused by Red China. Drudge has linked and bannered stories about wars with Iran, North Korea and Syria, which never materialized. I get that he has to link breaking news, but his continual selection of anti-Trump tripe trotted out by the Fourth Estate borders on desperation, and it diminishes and discredits Drudge

Hurricane Dorian, a Category 4 with 140 mph winds as of early Saturday, is not expected to make landfall in Florida and instead will track up the coastline, possibly slamming into the Carolinas late Wednesday. Earlier projections had it hitting Florida head on as early as Monday. Areas all along the coast still are bracing for storm surge, heavy rain and dangerous, gusty winds. Other forecasts have the storm not making landfall at all in the U.S. A high-pressure system in the Atlantic is helping push the storm north. If Dorian remains farther off shore, parts of Florida may see only up to 10 inches of rain, significantly lower than earlier forecasts.

"The check's in the mail" is a promise that payment's been sent even if it hasn't. It's a stalling tactic to avoid pressure from creditors, from those expecting payment. That's the scam our government is running on the American people today, a ruse to tamp down expectations of justice. We all know that the FBI used an unverifiable document, the Steele dossier, to get a warrant to spy on Trump using the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). This dossier was used to start a counterintelligence operation to plant spies in Trump's campaign, to get a special counsel to impeach the president.

HANOVER, N.H. — Joe Biden painted a vivid scene for the 400 people packed into a college meeting hall. A four-star general had asked the then-vice president to travel to Konar province in Afghanistan, a dangerous foray into “godforsaken country” to recognize the remarkable heroism of a Navy captain. Some told him it was too risky, but Biden said he brushed off their concerns. “We can lose a vice president,” he said. “We can’t lose many more of these kids. Not a joke.” The Navy captain, Biden recalled Friday night, had rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire and retrieved the body of an American comrade,
