Taliban Used US-Made Humvee in Ambush That Killed Dozens

Taliban Used US-Made Humvee in Ambush That Killed Dozens | 22 Jan 2019 | A lethal Taliban attack on an Afghan intelligence compound made use of a stolen Humvee to storm the compound's gates and conduct a suicide bombing, illustrating how the US effort to arm counterterrorism forces ultimately provides weapons to terrorist groups. The Monday attack featured a suicide bomber crashing into a training compound belonging to Afghanistan's intelligence service and Taliban fighters firing at the compound. Approximately 120 Afghan security forces have been reported dead, though the Washington Post notes Afghanistan's spy agency has not released casualty information.

Damascus Threatens to Respond to Israeli Attack With Strike on Tel Aviv Airport

Damascus Threatens to Respond to Israeli Attack With Strike on Tel Aviv Airport | 23 Jan 2019 | Permanent Representative of the Syrian Mission to the United Nations said that Damascus might respond to Israeli airstrike on Damascus airport with a "symmetric" strike on the Tel Aviv airport. Permanent Representative of the Syrian Arab Republic to the United Nations Bashar Jaafari said that it was time that the United Nations Security Council "took action to stop constant Israeli attacks on Syrian territories", adding that Damascus might exercise its right for self-defence and respond to the Israeli attack on Damascus Airport with "symmetric" strike on Tel Aviv airport.

McConnell sets up votes on Thursday on competing proposals to reopen government

McConnell sets up votes on Thursday on competing proposals to reopen government | 22 Jan 2019 | The Senate will take two key votes on Thursday on competing proposals aimed at ending the ongoing government shutdown -- one backed by Republicans and the other backed by Democrats and both likely to fail. One of the votes will be on a proposal backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to fund President Donald Trump's border wall and reopen shuttered parts of the government. That legislation is in line with an offer the President proposed over the weekend offering temporary protections for some immigrants in exchange for $5.7 billion for a border wall -- and which Democrats swiftly rejected as they hold firm in insisting that the government should be reopened before lawmakers proceed to a debate on border security. The other vote will be on House-passed legislation backed by Democrats to reopen the government without providing new funding for the wall.

White House announces 51 judicial picks, including two for liberal Ninth Circuit

White House announces 51 judicial picks, including two for liberal Ninth Circuit | 22 Jan 2019 | The White House on Tuesday announced the re-nomination of 51 federal judicial nominees left over from the previous Congress, kickstarting the administration's effort to install more conservative judges after GOP activists worried that such appointments had stalled. Nine of the 51 appointments are for spots on prestigious and influential federal appellate benches, including two on the mostly liberal San Francisco-based Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which President Trump has often derided as politically biased.

White House planning to proceed with State of the Union, but details up in the air after Pelosi threat

White House planning to proceed with State of the Union, but details up in the air after Pelosi threat | 22 Jan 2019 | The White House is still planning to move ahead with next week's scheduled State of the Union address, but the details remain up in the air after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi strongly urged the president to delay the speech or submit it in writing amid the government shutdown fight. According to multiple sources, it remains unclear whether the address scheduled for Jan. 29 will in fact go forward, or what venue it would be in. The White House is even planning for the possibility of a speech outside of Washington.

Maduro orders 'total revision' of Venezuela-US diplomatic ties after Pence calls for regime change

Maduro orders 'total revision' of Venezuela-US diplomatic ties after Pence calls for regime change | 23 Jan 2019 | Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has ordered a revision of diplomatic relations with the US after the White House has openly urged the opposition to unite and overthrow the "dictator with no legitimate claim to power." Ahead of the mass street protests against Maduro on Wednesday, called by the opposition-led National Assembly, US Vice President Mike Pence released a video message reaffirming unwavering support for a regime change in Venezuela...Slamming the speech as shameless US meddling in his country's internal affairs, Maduro in response promised his supporters to announce specific measures against Washington in the coming hours. "Enough of aggressions and conspiracies, enough is enough!" said Maduro, rejecting the "imperialist interventionism" and open calls for coup d'état that he called unprecedented in the 200-year history of US-Venezuela relations.

White House expresses 'support' for Covington Catholic students

White House expresses 'support' for Covington Catholic students | 22 Jan 2019 | The White House has reached out to Covington Catholic High School students after video of an encounter between students from the school and Omaha Nation elder Nathan Phillips stirred a national debate. "We've reached out and voiced our support" for the students, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters Tuesday evening. She continued, "Certainly no one understands better than this President when the media jumps to conclusions and attacks you for something you may or may not have done." The Covington Catholic High School students were criticized when a brief video surfaced on Friday showing them wearing Make America Great Again hats and [not] mocking Phillips during the school's annual trip to a March for Life rally in Washington. A second video surfaced on Sunday showing another group, who identify themselves as members of the Hebrew Israelites, taunting students with disparaging and vulgar language before the encounter with the Native American.

The Clinton machine flooded the FBI with Trump-Russia dirt...until agents bit

The Clinton machine flooded the FBI with Trump-Russia dirt...until agents bit | 22 Jan 2019 | ...In 2016, Hillary Clinton's machine eventually got the FBI to bite on an uncorroborated narrative that Donald Trump and Russia were trying to hijack the presidential election. Between July and October 2016, Clinton-connected lawyers, emissaries and apologists made more than a half-dozen overtures to U.S. officials, each tapping a political connection to get suspect evidence into FBI counterintelligence agents' hands, according to internal documents and testimonies I reviewed and interviews I conducted. In each situation, the overture was uninvited. And as the election drew closer, the point of contact moved higher up the FBI chain. It was, as one of my own FBI sources called it, a "classic case of information saturation" designed to inject political opposition research into a counterintelligence machinery that should have suspected a political dirty trick was underway.

Supreme Court allows transgender military ban to be enforced

Supreme Court allows transgender military ban to be enforced | 22 Jan 2019 | The Supreme Court handed President Trump a partial win on Tuesday, allowing the administration to temporarily enforce its restrictions on transgender people serving in the military. The court ruled 5-4 to stay two district court orders that blocked the new policy, with the court's liberal wing dissenting. The justices said they are waiting for the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to weigh in. The Supreme Court's decision does leave one nationwide injunction on Trump's order in place. As a result, Pentagon officials said they cannot completely implement the new policy yet.

Professor who also serves as director of writing program: Grading based on quality is racist

Professor who also serves as director of writing program: Grading based on quality is racist --American University will host an event with a professor from a writing center which argues that American grammar is racist. [Yes, I heard that adverbs have been attending Klan meetings!] | 18 Jan 2019 | American University in Washington, D.C. is hosting an event on Feb. 1 on "antiracist" grading with a professor who serves as director of a writing center which argues that American grammar is a "racist," "unjust language structure." The seminar, titled, "Grading Ain't Just Grading: Rethinking Writing Assessment Ecologies Towards Antiracist Ends," will be led by University of Washington-Tacoma professor [but no scholar] Asao Inoue, who previously published an essay titled, "A Grade-less Writing Course that Focuses on Labor and Assessing," in which he argues in favor of "dispens[ing] almost completely with judgments of quality when producing course grades."

Apologies Roll in for Catholic School Protesters as Fuller Picture of Events Emerges

Apologies Roll in for Catholic School Protesters as Fuller Picture of Events Emerges | 20 Jan 2019 | It was the hate crime of the century. Or so some in the media appeared to think, judging by the condemnations and mass hysteria that followed initial footage of a group of Covington Catholic High School students -- some of whom were wearing MAGA hats -- supposedly harassing an older Native American man. Except, what may have seemed to be one thing at first turned out to be something else altogether...As details emerged, some individuals and outlets who had been quick to condemn the students retracted their words and even apologized.

Nancy Pelosi Charged Air Force Nearly $200k to Fly Her Family, Other Lawmakers to Italy and Ukraine

Nancy Pelosi Charged Air Force Nearly $200k to Fly Her Family, Other Lawmakers to Italy and Ukraine | 21 Jan 2019 | House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's congressional delegation (CODEL) to Belgium, Egypt and Afghanistan garnered extra attention after President Donald Trump banned her from using military aircraft, but the trip would not have been the first time she used Air Force money to travel the world. Pelosi's trip to Italy and Ukraine from July 30 to Aug. 6, 2015, cost the Air Force $184,587.81, according to documents released Saturday under a 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by Judicial Watch. Her delegation was made up of nine other members of Congress, including Democratic Reps. Anna Eshoo of California and Marcia Fudge of Ohio. Four family members, including Pelosi's husband Paul Pelosi, were on the trip.

First responder in Skripal poisoning turns out to be Britain's most senior military nurse

First responder in Skripal poisoning turns out to be Britain's most senior military nurse | 21 Jan 2019 | Sergei and Yulia Skripal were given first aid by the British Army's most senior nurse, who just happened to be nearby, according to a new report -- adding further intrigue to the highly controversial case. The latest development in the Salisbury poisoning affair will fuel the claims of skeptics, who don't believe the official British narrative. UK authorities have claimed that the former double agent and his daughter were targeted by the Russian government in a bizarre failed assassination plot involving a military-grade nerve agent. It was previously reported by British media that the first person to provide medical assistance to the Skripals after they collapsed on a bench in Salisbury was "an off-duty nurse who had worked on the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone." [Yeah, right!] However, the healthcare professional turned out to be not just any nurse. She was Colonel Alison McCourt, a veteran service member who currently holds the position of chief nursing officer in the British Army. [Sounds like an obvious MI6/Deep State false flag to me.]

'Fox & Friends' accidentally shows graphic saying Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead

'Fox & Friends' accidentally shows graphic saying Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead | 21 Jan 2019 | The hosts of "Fox & Friends" on Monday apologized for showing a graphic saying Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead, blaming a control room error. The graphic, similar to those marking the deaths of other famous figures, briefly showed a photo of Ginsburg and the dates "1933-2019." "We need to apologize. … A technical error in the control room triggered a graphic of RBG with a date on it," co-host Steve Doocy said later in the program.

IOC knew Russian athletes were clean, but concealed evidence of their innocence - lawyer

IOC knew Russian athletes were clean, but concealed evidence of their innocence - lawyer | 20 Jan 2019 | Russian athletes, falsely accused of a doping scheme at Sochi 2014, could've avoided career-ruining bans if the International Olympic Committee (IOC) didn't conceal facts of their innocence, an athlete's lawyer told RT. Russian sport has won a crucial legal battle on Saturday. Swiss Supreme Court has turned down the IOC's appeal against the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruling from February 1, 2017 to acquit 28 Team Russia members of doping use accusations during the 2014 Winter Games in Russia. The Olympic officials accepted the decision with "disappointment," but announced that they'll stop further persecution of the athletes.

Ebola outbreak in Eastern Congo, with at least 680 cases, is moving toward a major city

Ebola outbreak in Eastern Congo, with at least 680 cases, is moving toward a major city | 19 Jan 2019 | At least 680 people have been infected with the Ebola virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It's the second-largest Ebola outbreak in history, with 414 deaths so far, and the first Ebola outbreak in an active war zone, DRC's eastern North Kivu and Ituri provinces. But it could get worse: Health officials this week are concerned that Ebola appears to be spreading in the direction of Goma, a major population center in DRC. Just this week, DRC's health ministry confirmed four cases of the deadly virus in Kayina, a town in North Kivu, amidst fighting among rebel and militia groups.

Fire damages Fox, C-SPAN, MSNBC studios

Fire damages Fox, C-SPAN, MSNBC studios | 20 Jan 2019 | A fire Sunday morning in Northwest Washington, D.C., damaged studios for Fox News, C-SPAN and MSNBC, and forced "Fox News Sunday" to relocate its broadcast to a local affiliate's studio. D.C. Fire and EMS tweeted that an electrical fire broke out in the 8th floor television studio but nobody was injured. Steve Scully, the political editor for C-SPAN, tweeted shortly after 7 a.m. that the Fox News and C-SPAN studios sustained "extensive damage," and MSNBC's studio took on "extensive smoke and water damage."

Democrats signal they'll reject Trump shutdown proposal

Democrats signal they'll reject Trump shutdown proposal | 19 Jan 2019 | Democrats quickly rejected a proposal President Trump's to link border money to temporary protections for some undocumented immigrants as a path out of the partial government shutdown. Trump, wants $5.7 billion for the border wall in exchange for a three-year extension of protected status for $5.7 billion for the border in exchange for a temporary extension of protected status for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program recipients and some Temporary Protected Status holders. But Democratic aides, rank-and-file members and Democratic leadership are panning the proposal, making it unlikely Trump's pitch will break the weeks-long shutdown stalemate.

Trump cancels Nancy Pelosi foreign trip citing shutdown

Trump cancels Nancy Pelosi foreign trip citing shutdown | 18 Jan 2019 | US President Donald Trump has postponed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's upcoming trip to Brussels and Afghanistan, asking her to stay to negotiate an end to the partial US government shutdown. The president was able to halt the trip by denying the use of military aircraft to Mrs Pelosi and a delegation. On Wednesday Mrs Pelosi had urged Mr Trump to postpone his State of the Union address, amid political deadlock. "I also feel that, during this period, it would be better if you were in Washington negotiating with me and joining the Strong Border Security movement to end the Shutdown," Mr Trump wrote. The president added that Mrs Pelosi could proceed with the trip - which he described as a "public relations event" - using a commercial airline.

Trump offers immigration compromise to end partial shutdown; Dems cool to offer

Trump offers immigration compromise to end partial shutdown; Dems cool to offer | 19 Jan 2019 | President Trump, in a televised White House address Saturday, offered Democrats a compromise package on immigration in an effort to end the nearly monthlong partial government shutdown -- although Democrats dismissed the olive branch as a "non-starter" before Trump even spoke. Trump announced that he was prepared to back a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 immigrants who came to the country illegally as children and were shielded from deportation under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, in exchange for the $5.7 billion he has requested for a barrier on the southern border. The deal would also extend protections for 300,000 recipients of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program -- which protects immigrants from designated countries with conditions that prevent nationals from returning safely.

Among the items discussed, the president proposed $800 million in urgent humanitarian assistance, $805 million for drug detection technology, 2,750 border agents and law enforcement officials and 75 new immigration judge teams to reduce court backlog of 900,000 cases. Additionally, the president proposed a three year extension for those with temporary protective status.

In Paris, the Yellow Vest occupied the Champs-Elysees and the Esplanade des Invalides near the nation's parliament... Some protesters brought cardboard coffins, in memory of the people who have died since the beginning of the protests (the majority was killed in traffic accidents during road blockades). They marched under a large banner reading "Citizens in danger."

Special counsel issues rare statement disputing BuzzFeed's Cohen report

Special counsel issues rare statement disputing BuzzFeed's Cohen report | 18 Jan 2019 | Special counsel Robert Mueller's office issued a rare statement Friday disputing a report from BuzzFeed News that President Trump had told his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.

Trump attorney dismisses report alleging president told Cohen to lie to Congress; Dems call for investigation

Trump attorney dismisses report alleging president told Cohen to lie to Congress; Dems call for investigation | 18 Jan 2019 | A report alleging that President Trump instructed his former personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about a shuttered real estate deal -- to build a Trump Tower in Moscow -- drew a quick dismissal from Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, but had Democrats calling for an investigation. The allegations were detailed in a BuzzFeed report published Thursday night. It cited two unnamed federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation on the matter who said Cohen acknowledged to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office that he was instructed by Trump in 2017 to lie to Congress about negotiations to build the tower in Moscow. "If you believe Cohen, I can get you a great deal on the Brooklyn Bridge," Giuliani said in response to the report.

Mueller Debunks BuzzFeed Story

Breaking: 'Not Accurate:' Mueller team disputes BuzzFeed report claiming Trump told Cohen to lie | 19 Jan 2019 | Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office on Friday issued a rare statement disputing a bombshell news report [by plagiarizer Jason LIEopold] claiming President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie about the timing of discussions over a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow.

Trump says he'll make 'major announcement' Saturday about partial shutdown, border crisis | 18 Jan 2019 | President Trump on Friday tweeted that he'll make "a major announcement" Saturday afternoon concerning the ongoing partial government shutdown and the "humanitarian crisis" on the southern border.

Funding for a barrier at the nation's southern border has been a point of contention between Republicans and Democrats during negotiations to end the partial shutdown, which began on Dec. 22. Trump has demanded almost $6 billion in funding for a wall or barrier, but Democrats have balked at that request.

Trump administration to appeal ruling against 2020 census citizenship question

Trump administration to appeal ruling against 2020 census citizenship question | 17 Jan 2019 | The Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a notice Thursday declaring it is appealing a federal judge's decision that the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 census would be unlawful. The notice did not give any information on the substance of the administration's appeal, but the Justice Department had argued that Commerce Sec. Wilbur Ross had the authority to add the question to the census and that in the past, the question had been included. Ross first announced in March that he would return the citizenship question to the census, saying it would better help the government enforce the Voting Rights Act.

Reddit User Claimed Inside Info 3 Weeks Ago About Yesterday's Attack on US Soldiers in Syria, Predicted False Flag

Reddit User Claimed Inside Info 3 Weeks Ago About Yesterday's Attack on US Soldiers in Syria, Predicted False Flag | 17 Jan 2019 | On December 19, President Donald Trump announced a complete withdrawal of American troops from Syria. This announcement was unexpected and extremely controversial. Ten days later a Reddit user "Lone_Traveller" posted on the "conspiracytheories" subreddit claiming to have insider information that the next few weeks would see an attack on American troops in Manbij. This surprise attack would allegedly kill multiple troops with the goal of blaming Assad and disrupting withdrawal of troops from Syria. The archived post: US Soldiers will be killed in Syria in the coming weeks. Hello Everyone, Not sure where else to post this. But the insider word in the intelligence community is that several US Soldiers in Syria will be killed in the coming days or weeks. A small operation in the Manbij area will include IEDs and sniper fire killing several US operators. The ultimate goal is to blame the operation on SAA soldiers from Assads forces. Thus creating public outcry and forcing the US to stay in the area...
