Ex-Trump campaign aide says he might not cooperate in House Dem probe

Ex-Trump campaign aide says he might not cooperate in House Dem probe | 05 March 2019 | A former campaign aide to President Trump said he might defy the House Judiciary Committee, which has asked him for testimony. An attorney for Michael Caputo, who was one of 81 people the panel asked for documents, told lawmakers that Caputo did not have documents related to their requests and would not guarantee his testimony, in a letter to House Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler. The letter Caputo's attorney Dennis C. Vacco sent to Nadler said that a House Judiciary Committee staffer asked if Caputo would testify before the committee. "I did not commit to produce Mr. Caputo, principally because he has already testified under oath twice," Vacco said in the letter. "Respectfully, there are only so many ways the same questions can be asked of Mr. Caputo."

Amazon Bans Tommy Robinson's Book, 'Mohammed's Koran'

Amazon Bans Tommy Robinson's Book, 'Mohammed's Koran' | 05 March 2019 | ...It's the British government and the BBC, rather than CAIR, that are likely behind this, but Amazon has just dropped the book Mohammed's Koran by the renowned British activist Tommy Robinson and Peter McLoughlin -- and apparently only because its censors dislike Robinson. In the last two weeks, Robinson spectacularly embarrassed the BBC by exposing the bias and dishonesty of its reporter John Sweeney. The retaliation has been swift and severe: Robinson has been banned from YouTube and Facebook, and now his book has been withdrawn from sale. Coauthor Peter McLoughlin states: [T]his is the twenty-first century equivalent of the Nazis taking out the books from university libraries and burning them. Can you think of another scholarly book on Islam that has been banned by Amazon? Mein Kampf is for sale on Amazon...

Nearly All Coal-Fired Power Plants in U.S. Are Contaminating Nearby Groundwater, New Report Finds | 04 March 2019 | Nearly all coal-fired plants in operation in the U.S. have leaked chemicals and contaminated the local groundwater supply with toxins, according to a report released Monday by environmental groups Environmental Integrity Project and Earthjustice. The alarming, though perhaps not altogether surprising report, found that a whopping 91 percent of power plants using coal had higher than normal levels of arsenic, lithium, and other pollutants in nearby groundwater, in some cases at levels that far exceeded what is allowable by the Environmental Protection Agency.

CNN focus group rejects Biden

CNN focus group rejects Biden | 05 March 2019 | A CNN focus group comprised of Democratic voters has rejected former Vice President Joe Biden as their presidential nominee. The focus group's dismissal of Biden is notable since the former vice president, who is expected to join the Democratic primary soon, has been leading a number of public opinion polls and is seen as the potential front-runner. The Democrats gathered by CNN, however, said they weren't interested in Biden. Some said they wanted a candidate who was further to the left. [Also, they want a candidate who can refrain from pawing seven-year-olds at public events.]

McConnell: Senate will pass resolution blocking Trump's emergency declaration

McConnell: Senate will pass resolution blocking Trump's emergency declaration | 04 March 2019 | Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday said that he expects a resolution blocking President Trump's emergency declaration to pass the Senate, but he does not believe lawmakers will be able to override a veto. "I think what is clear in the Senate is that there will be enough votes to pass the resolution of disapproval, which will then be vetoed by the president and then in all likelihood the veto will be upheld in the House," McConnell said while speaking to reporters in Kentucky. The Senate will vote on the resolution before lawmakers leave town on March 15 for a weeklong recess.

Ocasio-Cortez, chief of staff illegally moved $885K in campaign contributions 'off the books,' FEC complaint alleges

Ocasio-Cortez, chief of staff illegally moved $885K in campaign contributions 'off the books,' FEC complaint alleges | 04 March 2019 | New York. Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Saikat Chakrabarti, the progressive firebrand's multimillionaire chief of staff, apparently violated campaign finance law by working to funnel nearly $1 million in contributions from political action committees Chakrabarti established to private companies that he also controlled, according to an explosive complaint filed Monday with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) and obtained by Fox News. The filing asserts that Chakrabarti established two political action committees, the Brand New Congress PAC and Justice Democrats PAC, and then transferred more than $885,000 in contributions received by those PACs to the Brand New Congress LLC -- a company that, unlike the PACs, is exempt from reporting all of its expenditures over $200. The PACs claimed the payments were for "strategic consulting."

Blue states band together looking to bypass Electoral College

Blue states band together looking to bypass Electoral College | 03 March 2019 | A plan to circumvent the Electoral College is gaining momentum among blue states after Democrats suffered two crushing defeats in presidential elections over the past two decades. The plan has been given new impetus after Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) said this week that he will sign a bill to have his state become the 12th state along with the District of Columbia to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. The states making up the compact, which already includes New York, Illinois and all the New England states except for New Hampshire, would commit to awarding their electoral votes to whoever wins the popular vote nationally, regardless of the results in the Electoral College.

Inside Michael Cohen's '$750,000' book deal and how he pitched the proposal praising Trump just weeks before the FBI raided his office

Nor is he dumb or paranoid. Certainly he is not in over his head. Is he a liar? Nope. And he is not addicted to TV either. Who says so? None other than Michael Cohen, the president's former lawyer and fixer who eviscerated Trump in three days of testimony before Congressional committees this week. Cohen's comments were in a book proposal that the jail-bound disbarred attorney was shopping around in the weeks before the FBI raided his offices last year. DailyMail.com has reviewed a copy of that proposal. At the time he had nothing but good things to say about his boss who had entered the White House a little more than a year earlier.

US and South Korea agree to scrap major military drills to foster denuclearization - Seoul | 03 March 2019 | Washington and Seoul will no longer be conducting large-scale Foal Eagle and Key Resolve war games, the South Korean defense ministry said Sunday. It comes several days after US President Trump complained about the drills' cost.

Now, she's been sentenced to jail. | 28 Feb 2019 | An animal rights activist who admitted to helping free a bear from a trap in Vernon has been sentenced to 15 days in jail. Catherine McCartney, 50, of Vernon, is appealing the sentence imposed Tuesday by Municipal Court Judge [and Grade 'A' sociopath] James Devine and says she stands by her actions.

[People need to destroy every trap they see - problem solved.]

WaPo issues correction to Covington kids story - 6 weeks and 1 lawsuit later

WaPo issues correction to Covington kids story - 6 weeks and 1 lawsuit later [and during a news dump at 5 p.m. on a Friday night] | 02 March 2019 | The Washington Post has corrected its erroneous coverage of the confrontation between the boys from Covington Catholic and the activist Nathan Phillips at the Lincoln Memorial, two months after publishing the misleading story. Admitting "subsequent reporting, a student's statement and additional video" either contradicted or didn't support the initial story, the belated editors' note acknowledges the Covington boys did not taunt, provoke, or stand in the way of Phillips - and removes a tweet quoting Phillips's claim that they did exactly that in which the paper falsely refers to the Native American protester as a Vietnam veteran. The Post's correction follows a $250 million defamation lawsuit filed by Nick Sandmann, the 16-year-old protagonist of the viral video that inspired the original story.

'Aid trucks' carry nails and wire for barricades, says Venezuelan FM, shows photos | 27 Feb 2019 | Addressing the UN Security Council, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza has said that the trucks supposedly carrying humanitarian supplies to Venezuela were also loaded with nails and wire, showing photos of seized cargo. The opposition-led and US-backed operation to drive trucks with humanitarian aid over the Colombia-Venezuela border led to violent scuffles, which saw many police officers injured and several trucks set on fire. Denouncing the botched delivery as a "well-orchestrated operation to violate the territory of Venezuela," Arreaza has presented what he called the evidence of the US-led effort being a Trojan horse, aimed at inciting a coup.

Democrats block Senate GOP bill on infants surviving abortions

Democrats block Senate GOP bill on infants surviving abortions | 26 Feb 2019 | Senate Democrats on Monday blocked a Republican bill that would have threatened prison for doctors who don’t try saving the life of infants born alive during abortions.

The vote was the latest instance in which Republicans have tried to go on offense on the issue and put Democratic abortion-rights lawmakers in an uncomfortable position. Supporters said the measure presented lawmakers with a simple, moral choice.

Push to end U.S. support for Saudi war hits Senate setback | 25 Feb 2019 |  A House-passed resolution that would withdraw U.S. support for the Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen is running into a procedural roadblock in the Senate. The roadblock may delay the legislation which is seen as a bipartisan rebuke of President Trump. The Senate parliamentarian has ruled that the House resolution is not "privileged" in the Senate--a status that was expected to allow supporters to force a vote and pass it with only a simple majority despite steep objections from GOP leadership.

[Little] Marco Rubio posts revolting and dangerous tweet as tensions with Venezuela rise | 25 Feb 2019 | Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) [P-Prostitute-Deep State] is best know on Twitter for posting inoffensive, out-of-context Bible passages.

And on Sunday, he took his attacks on Maduro to a new level, posting a threatening tweet showing two images of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi -- both during his rule and as he was being killed in the streets by a mob [of al-CIAduh terrorists]. In the context of his previous tweets, it was a clear warning to Maduro. Gaddafi was killed in the streets after a U.S.- and NATO-backed mission helped overthrow his government.

"Security will be at the maximum level," Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Le Hoai Trung told reporters at a briefing meant to showcase the nation's efforts to welcome Kim and Trump.
