NBC: Two months before WikiLeaks released emails stolen from the Clinton campaign, right-wing conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi sent an email to former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone anticipating the document dump, according to draft court papers obtained by NBC News.“Word is friend in embassy plans 2 more dumps,” Corsi wrote on Aug. 2, 2016, referring to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, according to … Read More
What does this tweet (from 10 minutes ago) mean? First of all, I don’t think Trump gets the “Game of Thrones” reference. Secondly, what sanctions? With Election Day on November 6, this sounds like a stunt. UPDATE: Oh, okay. He’s talking about Iran sanctions. Joffrey grew up. https://t.co/hpL8fjze0j — Full Frontal (@FullFrontalSamB) November 2, 2018 A nice retort from Game … Read More
Guess what? The White House has found no corroboration of the allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after examining interview reports from the FBI’s latest probe into the judge’s background. Neither has the GOP majority on the Senate Judiciary Committee. This leaves senators in much the same position as last week—faced with two witnesses providing mutually exclusive … Read More
Even though this was a couple weeks ago, I learned about it last night Sadly, I also learned last night about the death of another cousin.
It’s been compared to Pearl Harbor and 9/11. These comparisons, to me, aren’t apt. For one thing, people died. More importantly, those tragedies weren’t self-inflicted. But the gravity of what Trump did has even surpassed his “both sides” comment of Charlottesville. Virtually every politician and pundit has condemned the disastrous press conference. “Treason” and “traitor” are on many lips, while … Read More
This is the mood of the country (most of it) – defeatism and fear: A lot of anger (from myself among most) is directed at those who thought they would make a “protest vote” and vote for some loser third party candidate or stay at home. But THIS is what we warned everyone about. This is why elections matter.
Right wing media and Trump have a lot riding on the IG Report today. They are hoping that it will expose the Deep State and the bias in the Mueller investigation. Fat chance. The IG Report basically says that Comey screwed up by having press conferences about the Clinton emails so close to the election. Ya THINK?!? That said, Trump … Read More
Guess what, Devin Nunes and company didn’t find collusion! This allows the President to tweet… Just Out: House Intelligence Committee Report released. “No evidence” that the Trump Campaign “colluded, coordinated or conspired with Russia.” Clinton Campaign paid for Opposition Research obtained from Russia- Wow! A total Witch Hunt! MUST END NOW! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 27, 2018 The … Read More
The Wall Street Journal just published a stunning scoop. In 2017 Michael Cohen negotiated a $1.6 million hush deal for a major GOP fundraiser named Elliott Broidy, deputy finance chairman of the RNC. If that name rings a bell, it should. Broidy is at the center of the part of the Russia probe involving the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and international fixer and convicted pedophile … Read More
Well, I am definitely buy Comey’s book now. Bit of a Streisand Effect going on with all the GOP attacks on Comey and his book. Trump today… As with most of Trump’s tweets, these two are largely fact-free. And Trump, as candidate, PRAISED the way Comey handled the Clinton matter (as did Fox and all Trump surrogates). There is no … Read More
Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg just released prepared statements for his upcoming testimony before U.S. lawmakers, issuing an apology and taking responsibility for its indiscretions. The notoriously press shy Zuckerberg is under intense pressure to explain how Facebook allowed the personal information of millions of its users to be used by a data analysis firm that worked for President Donald … Read More
Is say “Trump”, but I have a feeling Trump is not gung-ho about this: The United States imposed new economic sanctions on senior Russian politicians, companies and business leaders Friday, citing a list of complaints including Moscow’s attempts to undermine Western democracies, support of separatists in Ukraine and its backing for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The sanctions — the Trump … Read More
The Cambridge Analytica scandal is suddenly a major problem for Facebook. On Tuesday, the Federal Trade Commission opened an investigation into how Cambridge Analytica, ostensibly a voter-profiling company, accessed data about 50 million Facebook users, according to The Wall Street Journal. It’s not alone: The GOP-controlled Senate Commerce Committee demanded answers from Facebook on Monday, as did Senator Ron Wyden, a Democrat of Oregon. The social giant’s stock … Read More

The data firm behind Brexit, and the Trump Administration, gets an unflattering expose: Make no mistake — Trump’s digital consultants admit to using bribes and sex workers to entrap political opponents. This segment just aired on Channel 4 in Britain (and loaded up to YouTube) so it is breaking news. And already, there are repercussions… BREAKING: Channel 4 just announced … Read More
