The topic: Deep State Sues for Peace through the MSM

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 06:39:34 GMT

The premise Shane lays out, as a hypothetical, is that the dossier and the Neo-McCarthyist hysteria it unleashed against 45 is actually the product of a Russian disinformation campaign. We propose this is COMMUNICATION from the Clinton and Obama camps to 45 and Sessions that they are willing to make a deal.



The True Story Of Andrew Jackson’s Swearing Parrot

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 06:19:16 GMT

Andrew Jackson isn’t the only US President to keep a pet bird in the White House. Teddy Roosevelt had a one-legged rooster and James Buchanan supposedly owned two bald eagles (because America). But to our knowledge, Jackson was the only one to have a swearing parrot. The bird’s name was Poll and was originally meant for Jackson’s wife, Rachel. But after she passed away, Jackson became the African Grey’s caretaker. So how did the parrot get a foul mouth? We can’t say for sure. But with what we know about Jackson—a man so tough and temperamental his nickname was “Old...



Tax Reform Myths and Realities

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 05:56:37 GMT

The recently enacted tax reform/tax reduction is possibly the most misinterpreted and misrepresented policy change in the history of policy changes. For example, it has been accused of benefiting only the wealthy and of adding $1.5 trillion to the federal debt. There are numerous reasons to be highly skeptical of both these assertions. . . snip In a single masterful stroke Trump and his fellow Republicans have increased the net profits of virtually every corporation in America. That is going to set off an economic chain reaction. . . snip Consider the implications of what could well happen. Lower taxes,...



Republican leaders offer one-month spending bill

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 05:56:31 GMT

House Republican leaders presented their rank and file with a one-month spending bill Tuesday aimed at keeping the government open ahead of a Friday night deadline, as hopes for a deal on young undocumented immigrants faded. The bill would extend existing spending levels through Feb. 16 and include an extension of a popular children’s health insurance program — aimed at winning Democratic votes — and a new sweetener for conservatives and Democrats alike in delaying several taxes included in the Affordable Care Act. Few lawmakers were enthusiastic about the legislation, but several described it as a necessary evil to avoid...

WASHINGTON — A former C.I.A. officer suspected by investigators of helping China dismantle United States spying operations and identify informants has been arrested, the Justice Department said on Tuesday. ...

Cory Booker Shed ‘Tears of Rage’ Over 'Sh—hole' Comment

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 05:15:08 GMT

Sen. Cory Booker found himself compared to actor Tommy Wiseau of “The Room” on Tuesday after raising his voice during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. An angry exchange with Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen became one of the top tending stories on Twitter this week when Mr. Booker recounted “tears of rage” over comments attributed to Mr. Trump. The New Jersey Democrat scolded Ms. Nielsen for “amnesia” when she testified under oath that she never heard the president refer to “sh—hole” countries during policy negotiations. “When [Illinois senator] Dick Durbin called me, I had tears of rage when I heard...

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 05:06:11 GMT

Democrat Patty Schachtner won a special election for a state Senate seat in Wisconsin on Tuesday, scoring a huge upset victory for her party in a district that President Donald Trump handily captured just over a year ago. It was the latest in a string of election victories for Democrats since Trump took office, and a sign of hope for the party that the energy from the base and frustration with the president could lead to more wins in November. With every precinct counted, The Washington Post reported that Schachtner, the chief medical examiner for St. Croix County, won by...



Christie pardons several mired in New Jersey’s strict gun laws

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 04:33:41 GMT

Christie granted 26 orders for clemency, almost all pardons, bringing his eight-year total of such actions to just 55. Among those granted relief were media consultant Brian Aitken and Marine Sgt. Hisashi Pompey, men who had been arrested and found guilty of criminal weapon possession even though they had clear records and owned guns legally bought outside the state. NJ.com reported of the list of 26 granted clemency last week, at least seven others — Meghan Fellenbaum, Brandon Fregm, Brian Murphy, Adrian Rubio, Antonio Scott, Angel Cordero and Christopher O’Sullivan — were pardoned over unlawful possession of a weapon.



US Senator Cardin releases report of two decades of Putin's attacks on democracy(yada yada barf)

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 04:29:46 GMT

"“Putin’s Asymmetrical Assault on Democracy in Russia and Europe: Implications for U.S. National Security,” finds that President Trump’s refusal to publicly acknowledge the threat posed by the Russian government has hampered efforts to mobilize our government, strengthen our institutions, and work with our European allies to counter Putin’s interference in democracies abroad. Never before in American history has so clear a threat to national security been so clearly ignored by a U.S. president, and without a strong U.S. response, institutions and elections here and throughout Europe will remain vulnerable to the Kremlin’s aggressive and sophisticated malign influence operations."



Tom Perez's Idea of Reforming The DNC

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 04:17:38 GMT

Today, the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Tom Perez, admitted that reforming the Democratic Party was going to be far more difficult than he had imagined. I was so excited. I immediately and naively assumed that his idea of reforming the Democrat Party was purging the party of all the marxist kooks, hardcore violent leftists like Black Lives Matter and Antifa, anti-Free Speech college professors and administrators, disavowing the whole hateful “white privilege” mindset and condemning everyone who professes it on campuses and elsewhere, the Islamist lovers, while embracing free-market capitalism as the greatest wealth-producing machine in the history...

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 04:03:46 GMT

“This is the first year we have had the entire continental U.S. be the same color on the graph.” Now new strains may be coming. The influenza virus that’s sickened millions of Americans is already the most widespread outbreak since public health authorities began keeping track more than a dozen years ago. Now, with the threat of more strains emerging, it might get even worse. “Flu is everywhere in the U.S. right now,” said Dan Jernigan, director of the influenza division at the national Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. “This is the first year we have had the entire...

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 03:55:43 GMT

What if they shut down the government, ordering all NON-ESSENTIAL personnel to stay home, and while they're out, President Trump orders their desks, phones and computers removed and the locks changed? Isn't that basically what we've been fighting for all these years? Drain the swamp, baby.



Notre Dame professor: Higher education is 'drowning in BS'

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 03:50:48 GMT

“I have had enough bullshit,” wrote Notre Dame sociology professor Christian Smith in a recent piece about the systemic problems of American Higher Education. “The manure has piled up so deep in the hallways, classrooms, and administration buildings of American higher education that I am not sure how much longer I can wade through it and retain my sanity and integrity.” This forward, in-your-face commentary on the state of today’s higher education caught the attention of many in the realm of the Ivory bell tower, but should also serve as a wake-up call to those who don’t follow higher ed...

Nets Ignore New Bribery Indictment in Uranium One-Clinton Scandal

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 03:43:00 GMT

In an official statement on Friday, the Department of Justice announced the indictment of former Maryland executive Mark Lambert on “11 counts related to foreign bribery, fraud and money laundering scheme.” The indictment effectively tied Lambert to the Uranium One scandal because his alleged illicit activity involved JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), an arm of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation which now owns both TENEX and Uranium One. Despite the importance of the new indictment, the major three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) had been dead silent.



STUDY: Arizona’s ‘Dreamers’ Make Up 8 Percent Of State Prison Population

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 03:39:17 GMT

Younger illegal immigrants in Arizona make up a far larger percentage of the state’s prison inmates than their share of the population would suggest, according to a new analysis. While illegal immigrants ages 18 to 35 — a group immigration activists call “Dreamers” — are about 2 percent of of the Arizona population, they are almost 8 percent of the prison population. The over-representation by a factor of four shows that younger illegal immigrants in Arizona are far more likely to commit crimes than U.S. citizens or legal immigrants of a similar age, says John Lott Jr., president of the...



The System is Actively Working To Defend Itself… (sundance)

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 03:38:29 GMT

People often attempt to describe the larger umbrella of control with terms like “Deep State”, the “Administrative State”, the “Establishment”, the “industrial media”, and other descriptive word assemblies. The inherent goal is trying to describe various alignments and connections of institutional government with private sector social and financial interdependency.

Limbaugh: 'They would never think of themselves this way, but these are pure Stalinists'] Internet giants such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube may have, albeit quietly, declared war on conservatives, with new efforts to shut down their ability to get their message out.
