FBI, Justice Department to be investigated over Clinton probe

January 12, 2017 by walden9

FBI, Justice Department to be investigated over Clinton probe | 12 Jan 2017 | The Justice Department's internal watchdog announced Thursday it has launched a probe into the department and the FBI's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server. The announcement, which was expected, comes after criticism of the Justice Department's handling of the investigation, particularly on how the public was notified about the controversy, which was a major issue on the 2016 campaign trail. It will likely mean questions over the role of FBI Director James Comey in the fading days of the election, which Democrats believe helped cost them the presidency, will linger on long into the administration of Donald Trump.

Congress takes first steps to dismantle health care law | 12 Jan 2017 | Congressional Republicans are taking the first steps toward dismantling President Barack Obama's health care law, facing pressure from President-elect Donald Trump to move quickly on a replacement. "We have a responsibility to step in and provide relief from this failing law," Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., told reporters Thursday...Yet Ryan said there are no "hard deadlines" for a GOP replacement in tandem with the repeal effort, underscoring the difficulty for Congress despite the president-elect's call to both repeal the law and replace it with legislation to "get health care taken care of in this country."

Mattis says Putin 'trying to break' NATO | 12 Jan 2017 | James Mattis, Donald Trump's nominee to head the Pentagon, testified Thursday that he supports efforts to engage with Russia but was doubtful the two countries would find ways to cooperate.

If colleges keep killing academic freedom, civilization will die, too

January 12, 2017 by walden9

If colleges keep killing academic freedom, civilization will die, too | 10 Jan 2017 | No one can doubt that we should strive for civility. But problems arise when we are told that "uncivil" speech has made a campus "unsafe" - and that university officials should make a campus safe again by punishing uncivil speakers. To combat these threats to "safety," campus administrators have morphed into civility police. On some campuses, "bias response teams" investigate professors' online comments. Several universities, including Yale, may soon introduce a smartphone app that lets users anonymously report offensive remarks. These anonymous reports will allow university bureaucrats - and perhaps even the public - to compile a directory of "subversive" professors in the spirit of dictatorial regimes. One can easily imagine dueling "watchlists" compiled by liberal and conservative activists with the shared aim of chilling unwanted speech.

January 12, 2017 by legitgov

The Crimes of SEAL Team 6 | 10 Jan 2017 | Officially known as the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, SEAL Team 6 is today the most celebrated of the U.S. military's special mission units. But hidden behind the heroic narratives is a darker, more troubling story of "revenge ops," unjustified killings, mutilations, and other atrocities - a pattern of criminal violence that emerged soon after the Afghan war began and was tolerated and covered up by the command's leadership.

The explosive claims made against the group, officially named the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, include allegations of revenge killings, the mutilations of enemy fighters, 'criminal violence', and a department that 'went rogue'. The allegations have been reported in a new story by The Intercept, which it claims are based off more than two years of research and 'interviews with 18 current and former members, including four former senior leaders of the command'.

‘You Just Published Fake News’: Chuck Todd Hammers Buzzfeed Editor-in-Chief Over Trump/Russia Dossier

January 11, 2017 by walden9

'You Just Published Fake News': Chuck Todd Hammers Buzzfeed Editor-in-Chief Over Trump/Russia Dossier | 11 Jan 2017 | Following the much-criticized publication by Buzzfeed of a dossier showing unverified claims about President-elect Donald Trump being compromised by Russia, MSNBC host Chuck Todd grilled the site's Editor-in-Chief over his decision to publish the document. After Ben Smith justified the publication by noting that high level government officials had seen it, saying that he felt it needed to be shared with readers, Todd hit back. "You talk about context and you talk about putting responsibility on the readers," the MTP Daily host stated. "But at the same time, don't you have responsibility of not spreading false information? Are you knowingly spreading false information?"

Russia says Trump intel claims a 'fabrication and utter nonsense' | 11 Jan 2017 | A spokesman for President Vladimir Putin has denied allegations that the Kremlin has collected compromising information about U.S. President-elect Donald Trump. Spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Wednesday dismissed news reports as a "complete fabrication and utter nonsense." Peskov insisted that the Kremlin "does not engage in collecting compromising material. It is an obvious attempt to harm our bilateral relations,” Peskov said, adding "In English, it is called pulp fiction. Surely, we should react to it with the same sense of humor."

Vaccine skeptic RFK Jr. says he'll chair vaccine commission for Trump

January 11, 2017 by legitgov

Vaccine skeptic RFK Jr. says he'll chair vaccine commission for Trump [Yes!! Finally!] | 10 Jan 2017 | President-elect Donald Trump has asked Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a major source of disproved theories imputing harm to vaccines, to chair a "commission on vaccine safety and scientific integrity," Kennedy told reporters after a meeting in Trump Tower on Tuesday. Kennedy, who said he accepted the assignment, has been insisting for over a decade that traces of mercury in a preservative 'formerly' used in childhood vaccines caused a massive increase in autism diagnoses. Kennedy and other vaccine skeptics have found a welcoming audience in Trump, who has repeatedly stated the belief that vaccines cause autism. Kennedy and other anti-vaxxers say a vast array of CDC, FDA and pharmaceutical industry officials have covered up evidence of vaccine damage.

But it was returned to him just a month later, and law enforcement will not reveal why. Sources told CNN he used the same weapon in the airport attack.

She was joined by numerous superstars in the room, many of whom were also seen on camera last night applauding and cheering as Streep attacked Trump's supposed immorality. Clearly, their collective high moral values are a movable feast.
