Mueller appears to respond early in subpoena fight at Supreme Court

Mueller appears to respond early in subpoena fight at Supreme Court | 28 Dec 2018 | Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office appears to have responded to a foreign company's bid to get the Supreme Court to step into a fight over a grand jury subpoena served on the firm. Most details of the case remain under seal at the Supreme Court since the company asked for an emergency stay last week, but an entry in the high court's docket indicates a response was filed Friday, three days ahead of the Monday deadline set by the court. The filing was accompanied by an application to put the filing under seal, the Supreme Court docket says.

The terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad reason the military wants to stay in Syria

The terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad reason the military wants to stay in Syria | 29 Dec 2018 | On December 19, 2018, President Trump declared correctly that "we have won against ISIS," and announced that the remaining 2,000 American troops in Syria would be withdrawn...The Washington foreign-policy swamp is outraged by Trump's "mission accomplished," calling it "precipitous" and "reckless." What they are not telling you is that, for them, the "mission" was never primarily about ISIS; it was about eliminating the Assad regime. The Islamic State was simply a convenient cover to deploy troops into Syria. And now, having taken control of everything east of the Euphrates River with the help of the indigenous Kurdish population, they want to attack Assad.

Stanislaus sheriff slams California sanctuary policies after arrest in officer's slaying

Stanislaus sheriff slams California sanctuary policies after arrest in officer's slaying | 28 Dec 2018 | A day laborer with gang affiliations and past arrests for drunken driving, who was in the country illegally, was captured outside Bakersfield in the high-profile killing of a Stanislaus County police officer, officials announced Friday. But while the arrest of Gustavo Perez Arriaga, 32, ended a statewide manhunt in Wednesday's killing of Newman police Cpl. Ronil Singh, revelations about the suspect's immigration status and criminal history reignited criticism of California's sanctuary state policy. At a news conference Friday, Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson echoed President Trump's calls for stricter border security as he railed against the state's sanctuary law.

House Democrats scooping up staff, lawyers to power Trump investigations

House Democrats scooping up staff, lawyers to power Trump investigations | 28 Dec 2018 | The House Judiciary Committee is looking for a few good lawyers. A recent committee job posting reviewed by CNN asked for legislative counsels with a variety of expertise: "criminal law, immigration law, constitutional law, intellectual property law, commercial and administrative law (including antitrust and bankruptcy), or oversight work." The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee needs lawyers, too, posting jobs for "executive branch investigative counsel." The advertisements give a window into the Democratic recruiting that's ramped up ahead of the party gaining subpoena power for the first time in eight years when it takes over the House in January.

Hamilton 68 Dashboard, the online tool that purports to monitor and expose narratives pushed by the Kremlin on Twitter, is funded by Democrats and neoconservatives

Hamilton 68 Dashboard, the online tool that purports to monitor and expose narratives pushed by the Kremlin on Twitter, is funded by Democrats and neoconservatives bankrolled in part by NATO and USAID --The only 'Russian bots' to meddle in US elections belonged to Democratic-linked 'experts' | 28 Dec 2018 | US cyber-security experts have blamed Russia for meddling in American elections since 2016. Now it has emerged that authors of a Senate report on 'Russian' meddling actually ran a "false flag" meddling operation themselves. A week before Christmas, the Senate Intelligence Committee released a report accusing Russia of depressing Democrat voter turnout by targeting African-Americans on social media. Its authors, New Knowledge, quickly became a household name. Described by the New York Times as a group of "tech specialists who lean Democratic," New Knowledge has ties to both the US military and intelligence agencies. Its CEO and co-founder Jonathon Morgan previously worked for DARPA. His partner, Ryan Fox, is a 15-year veteran of the National Security Agency who also worked as a computer analyst for the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). Investors pumped $11 million into the company in 2018 alone. Morgan and Fox have struck gold in the "Russiagate" racket, which sprung into being after Hillary Clinton blamed Moscow for Donald Trump's presidential victory in 2016. Morgan, for example, is one of the developers of the Hamilton 68 Dashboard, the online tool that purports to monitor and expose narratives being pushed by the Kremlin on Twitter. The dashboard is bankrolled by the German Marshall Fund's Alliance for Securing Democracy [sic] -- a collection of Democrats and neoconservatives funded in part by NATO and USAID.

House inaction means government shutdown will likely continue

House inaction means government shutdown will likely continue | 27 Dec 2018 | House Republicans said Thursday that no votes are expected for the rest of the week, making it likely the government shutdown will continue. That's according to the office of Republican Whip Steve Scalise, who announced the schedule Thursday. Scalise's office says lawmakers are waiting on the Senate. But the Senate already approved a bill to keep government running. The House panned that measure and approved a new version that included money for President Donald Trump's border wall. They are at a stalemate.

LinkedIn co-founder 'sorry' for funding 'Russian bot' disinformation campaign against Roy Moore

LinkedIn co-founder 'sorry' for funding 'Russian bot' disinformation campaign against Roy Moore | 27 Dec 2018 | The co-founder of LinkedIn, Reid Hoffman, has apologized to Republican Roy Moore for funding an organisation that faked a 'Russian bot' involvement to mar his election campaign in Alabama. American Engagement Technologies (AET), which Hoffman gave $750,000 to, put $100,000 of the entrepreneur's money towards New Knowledge, a cybersecurity firm which fabricated some 1,000 Russian language Twitter accounts to follow Moore. The company used the tactic to link the controversial Republican to so-called Russian influence campaigns and then fed it to the mainstream media. They also created misleading Facebook pages urging Republicans to support a 'write-in' candidate instead of supporting Moore.

Singh was shot and killed during a traffic stop just before 1 a.m. Wednesday in Newman, about 100 miles southeast of San Francisco, according to police.

He remained on the ground for about three hours, greeting enthusiastic selfie-taking servicemen and women in their holiday-bedecked dining hall. Dressed in a black overcoat and red tie, Trump posed for pictures and signed autographs for troops in fatigues.
