Allies for former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), both of whom are seeking to beat back a challenge from Harris’s surging campaign, are calling Harris’s past remarks into question, saying she has obfuscated her positions in an effort to endear herself to the liberal base. "I think her statements, campaign are smoke and mirrors," said Dick Harpootlian, a Biden campaign surrogate and the former chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party.

Trump complains of 'crazed' media coverage over 'send her back' chants |19 July 2019 | President Trump on Friday bemoaned the amount of media coverage devoted to supporters at his Wednesday night rally chanting "send her back" about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) as he dug in on his attacks against the first-term congresswomen and three of her colleagues. Trump fired off a trio of tweets in which he shifted blame for the uproar over the chants onto the media one day after he sought to distance himself from the refrain.

The surprise move -- which top Republicans privately supported -- was a visible manifestation of the close personal bond Trump has forged with the Scalia family in recent years. The confirmation process for Justice Neil Gorsuch, who ultimately filled Justice Scalia's seat, sparked the connection...Scalia, 55, is expected to face headwinds from Democrats in his Senate confirmation hearings, in part because he routinely has represented major corporations in key cases involving workers' rights.

House orders Pentagon to say if it weaponized ticks and released them

House orders Pentagon to say if it weaponized ticks and released them --The order requires the agency to say if it experimented with insects for use as a biological weapon between 1950 and 1975 | 15 July 2019 | The House quietly voted last week to require the Pentagon inspector general to tell Congress whether the department experimented with weaponizing disease-carrying insects and whether they were released into the public realm --either accidentally or on purpose. [My money's on *the latter.*] The unusual proposal took the form of an amendment that was adopted by voice vote July 11 during House debate on the fiscal 2020 defense authorization bill, which lawmakers passed the following day. The amendment, by New Jersey Republican [hero] Christopher H. Smith, says the inspector general "shall conduct a review of whether the Department of Defense experimented with ticks and other insects regarding use as a biological weapon between the years of 1950 and 1975." [Guess I can't be labeled a 'conspiracy theorist,' going forward.]

Los Angeles, California cities 'overrun by rodents' that pose public health epidemic, study says | 17 July 2019 | An ever-growing number of rodents in California -- particularly in Los Angeles -- is being fueled by a spiking homeless population and restrictions on rodenticides that are risking a public health crisis, according to a study released Tuesday.

19 MS-13 gang members indicted in 'medieval-style' California slayings were in country illegally, officials say

19 MS-13 gang members indicted in 'medieval-style' California slayings were in country illegally, officials say | 17 July 2019 | Nearly all of the members and associates of an MS-13 gang charged in the "medieval-style" slayings of seven people in California were in the country illegally, officials said.

FBI's spreadsheet puts a stake through the heart of Steele's dossier

FBI's spreadsheet puts a stake through the heart of Steele's dossier | 17 July 2019 | (Opinion) Investigators are trying to ascertain what the British intelligence operative [MI6 agent Christopher Steele and his infamous dossier] told the FBI about his sources, his relation to the Democratic Party and Clinton campaign, his hatred for Donald Trump, his Election Day deadline to get his information public and his leaking to media outlets before agents used his dossier to justify a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on ex-Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. There is evidence Steele told the DOJ in July, and the State Department in October, about all of these flaws in his work, and that State officials even detected blatant inaccuracies in his intelligence. If so, all of that information should have been flagged by the FBI as potentially derogatory information weighing against Steele's use as a source for the FISA warrant. But lest anyone be tempted to think Steele's 2016 dossier is about to be mysteriously revived as credible, consider this: Over months of work, FBI agents painstakingly researched every claim Steele made about Trump's possible collusion with Russia, and assembled their findings into a spreadsheet-like document. The over-under isn't flattering to Steele.
