  • HERE’S THE COMPLETE AND UPDATED LIST: Deep State ‘Leaks’ to Far Left MSM Outlets – With Analysis

    Here is updated analysis of the most recent so called ‘leaks’ being reported and repeated by the liberal mainstream media (MSM) involving President Trump. The probability that a portion of these ‘leaks’ are completely inaccurate remains very high. The leaks are all being reported by biased liberal media outlets that were adamantly opposed to the election of President Trump. These ‘leaks’ in all cases still are not supported with any names of so-called sources and in all cases the ‘leaks’ are meant to destroy the current President. Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly made statements that were revealed in the...

    This is a long article about various Russian leak scenarios and who was responsible for ordering the actual surveillance of the Trump campaign. There lay the responsibility to S. Leslie Ireland, a trusted confidant who had personally delivered intelligence reports to Obama earlier in his presidency. Here's the money quote: The Anonymous Patriots have concluded that the U.S. Treasury Office of Intelligence and Analysis would have been responsible for the surveillance. S. Leslie Ireland, another Obama-Clinton loyalist, was in-charge of that office and had the authority to order a FISA warrant and/or conduct the surveillance as part of her normal...

    Well this is odd. WSVN anchor Robbin Simmons tweeted out a video of red flashing lights from inside the White House at 8:30pm EST Sunday. (embedded video) Breaking 911 reports: What appeared to be flashing red lights appeared from the second floor of the White House Sunday evening. Livestream webcams showed the strange sight—the flashing stopped after about 20 minutes. There was no official statement from the US Secret Service or The White House.

    SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea launched a ballistic missile on Monday that flew 280 miles and appears to have landed inside Japan’s economic zone where fishing and cargo ships are active, the South Korean military and the Japanese government said. President Moon Jae-in of South Korea called a meeting of his top security officials for later Monday morning to discuss the missile launch, coming a week after the North last tested a ballistic missile, and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan condemned the launch as a provocation.
  • Does President Trump Need a HOT LINE with KIM (NK)

    Does President Trump need a "HOT LINE" with North Korea Kim Jong-un? We currently have a "HOT LINE" link with Russia. The Moscow-Washington ‘Red Phone’ New tensions between the United States and Russia have resurfaced an old myth about the Cold War foes’ emergency communications link, known as the “Red Phone.” It is not a phone. It never has been. That false image, perpetuated in popular culture (“Dr. Strangelove,” “Fail Safe,”) and campaign ads (“3 a.m.”) masks a less evocative reality: secure teletypes, faxes and computer links transmitting encrypted text messages between the Kremlin and Pentagon. But their purpose is...

    The recently departed Bill O'Reilly would often call his TV show the "no spin zone."... Even the biggest crooks in the world always have a narrative going on in their heads to excuse what they are doing as being perfectly OK. As an extreme example of this phenomenon, consider the lead headline in yesterday's New York Times: "Russia-Trump Tie Was Big Concern Of Ex-C.I.A. Chief.".... Nice try. Here's my alternative headline for the article: "Ex C.I.A. Chief Brennan Offers Preposterous 'Russia' Cover Story To Excuse Blatantly Illegal Government Spying On Trump Campaign." My alternative headline is just the other "spin."...

    ATLANTA (AP) -- Democrats hope to enlist military veterans in another type of fight - for majority control of the House. Looking ahead to next year's elections, Democrats are trying to recruit at least two dozen military veterans to challenge Republican incumbents. Democrats say candidates with military on their resumes appeal to independent voters and can help the party break the GOP grip on Washington.

    The latest Hamptons summer accessory? A vasectomy. When Scott, a male model who says he’s in his 30s, kicks off the Hamptons high season this weekend at his Sag Harbor waterfront house, the unattached hunk won’t have any reservations about hooking up with women he hardly knows. “I had a vasectomy a few months ago. Having a house in the Hamptons and being fairly well-off, I’ve encountered some problems — women try to get pregnant,” said Scott, a regular on the society scene who earns a cool half-million a year. He recalled sex partners who have lied to him about...

    The research team ended up turning to the auto-performance tuning community again. These hard-core hobbyists and professionals share leaked function sheets so they can make aftermarket modifications to their cars... Audi was looking for a way to stop the rattling sound that diesel engines are known to make as the engine starts up. They allegedly solved the problem by injecting extra fuel as the engine initiated combustion. The extra fuel increased emissions. So, the “acoustic condition” was modified to discern when lab testing was occurring so that the Audis in question could pass their emissions tests and also have nice...

    For all the ink spilled about Trump being a loose cannon, there are no surprises here. Bad relations with Germany if he won were a fait accompli. This is the course Americans chose. Now we get the consequences, for better or worse.The last 70 years of peace in Europe were pretty boring. “The times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out. I’ve experienced that in the last few days,” Merkel told a crowd at an election rally in Munich, southern Germany.“We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands,” she...

    DENTON A North Texas sheriff who criticized “the left” and “political correctness” in a Facebook post after Monday’s terror attack in Manchester, England, defended his comments Tuesday. “I stand behind it,” Denton County Sheriff Tracy Murphree told NBC 5. “We need to be realistic about the world we live in.” The Manchester bombing, which happened at the end of an Ariana Grande concert, left at least 22 dead, including an 8-year-old girl. Manchester police identified the bomber as 22-year-old Salman Abedi, a British native who died in the attack.
