$10 Trillion Missing From Pentagon And No One — Not Even the DoD — Knows Where It Is
Post Date: 2017-03-27 09:49:40 by Deckard
By Claire Bernish Over a mere two decades, the Pentagon lost track of a mind-numbing $10 trillion thats trillion, with a fat, taxpayer-funded T and no one, not even the Department of Defense, knows where it went or on what it was spent. Even though audits of all federal agencies became mandatory in 1996, the Pentagon has apparently made itself an exception, and fully 20 years later stands obstinately orotund in never having complied. Because, as defense officials insist summoning their best impudent adolescent an audit would take too long and, unironically, cost too much. Over the last 20 years, the Pentagon has broken every ...
Court Rules in Favor of Police Who Pounded on Wrong Door, Didn’t Identify Themselves, Then Killed Innocent Man for Holding a Gun
Post Date: 2017-03-24 10:26:05 by Deckard
ATLANTA, Ga. According to a federal appeals court, police will not be held accountable for banging on the wrong door at 1:30 am, failing to identify themselves as police, and then repeatedly shooting and killing the innocent homeowner who answered the door while holding a gun in self-defense. Although 26-year-old Andrew Scott had committed no crime and never fired a single bullet or lifted his firearm against police, he was gunned down by police who were investigating a speeding incident by engaging in a middle-of-the-night knock and talk in Scotts apartment complex. In ruling in favor of qualified immunity for police, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the ...

NEW YORK ― Felix Sater has stabbed a man in the face with a broken margarita glass, run a $40 million mob-linked stock scam out of a storage unit, and been an FBI informant.Saters name has also come up repeatedly in connection to President Donald Trumps ties to Russia and willingness to take funding from unsavory partners.

Everything You Need To Know About Paul Manafort To Understand The Russia Connection
Post Date: 2017-03-23 07:27:39 by Willie Green
It seems like the Trump Administration can't keep its story straight when it comes to President Donald Trump's ties to Russia. An exclusive Associated Press report published Wednesday revealed that former Trump aide Paul Manafort once allegedly secretly worked with a Russian billionaire to benefit Russian President Vladimir Putin. AP's bombshell allegations contradict Manafort and the Trump Administration's repeated claims that the GOP operative had never worked for Russian interests. But who is Trump's former campaign chairman and why does he matter? Here's everything you need to know about Paul Manafort and his alleged questionable business dealings that include ...
Paul Manafort and Roger Stone "have a lot of explaining to do''
Post Date: 2017-03-23 06:58:07 by Willie Green
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Connecticut natives Paul Manafort and Roger Stone "have a lot of explaining to do'' regarding their ties to Donald Trump's presidential campaign and possible connections to the Russian government that are being investigated by the FBI. Malloy said that collusion and complicity with a foreign government to change the outcome of an American election would be "treason.'' But he said he was not accusing Manafort, Stone or anyone else of treason. "It is becoming increasingly clear that representatives of the president were complicit in the Russians' desire to affect our election's outcome,'' Malloy said Wednesday. ...

The case, USA v. Prevezon, was being spearheaded by now-fired US Attorney Preet Bharara. A Russian lawyer who was a witness in a US federal court case connected to the largest money-laundering scheme in Russian history was hospitalized after plunging four stories on Tuesday in Moscow, a spokesman said.There are conflicting reports about what happened to the lawyer, Nikolai Gorokhov. His spokesman, William Browder who was an alleged victim in the money-laundering scheme says he was thrown from the fourth floor of his apartment building.

Trump's former campaign manager had plan to benefit Putin government
Post Date: 2017-03-22 10:16:22 by Willie Green
President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, secretly worked for a Russian billionaire to advance the interests of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to the Associated Press. The AP reported Wednesday that Manafort proposed an ambitious political strategy a decade ago to undermine anti-Russian opposition across former Soviet republics. Manafort's ties to the Russian government were the subject of many questions during the recent U.S. House Intelligence Committee with FBI Director James Comey. The AP found that Manafort proposed in a confidential strategy plan as early as June 2005 that he would influence politics, business dealings and news coverage ...
Younger Americans don't consider Trump a legit president
Post Date: 2017-03-20 14:35:36 by Willie Green
Graphic from the Associated Press shows results of GenForward poll on younger Americans' attitudes toward Donald Trump and his presidency. (Associated Press)Fifty-seven percent of Americans aged 18 to 30 consider Donald Trump to be an "illegitimate" president, according to a new poll. That includes about three-quarters of blacks and substantial minorities of Latinos and Asians. The survey found that a slim majority of young whites, 53 percent, regard Trump as legitimate, although 55 percent of them disapprove of the job he's doing, according to a report on the survey by the Associated Press. The poll, called the GenForward poll, was conducted by the Black Youth ...
How the Regalados Got Away From Criminal Prosecution (prosecutor in hot shower death case)
Post Date: 2017-03-19 15:10:29 by A K A Stone
If there was anything even remotely resembling justice, neither Tomas or Raquel Regalado would be holding public office today.
Both of them should have been charged with at least one, and possibly two misdemeanor criminal counts related to their actions in handling the campaign’s financial accounting and reporting during Regalados campaign for Mayor of Miami.
But they weren’t. Instead, the Regalados were allowed to avoid criminal prosecution and were allowed to get off by paying civil penalties of $5000 each for a case which really did involve a “willful disregard for the law.”
The process by which they were given a free pass reveals one of the ways that Miami-Dade State Attorney ...
The Number of People Who Regret Voting for Trump Is Growing
Post Date: 2017-03-18 21:05:22 by Willie Green
A new national poll released this week shows that Trump supporters increasingly feel that he's "going too far," is falling short of their expectations of him for unifying the country, and is "getting sidetracked by things that aren't important." All of which amounts to an uptick in "Trump Regretters" (i.e. people who voted for him but no longer support him) since November. But a majority of Trump supporters still feel the President is "keeping his promises" and "getting things done." Last month, half of Trump voters felt he was "surrounding himself with the best people." This week, 39 percent do. But Trump-who last ...
“Painfully obvious” Trump leaked tax doc to “distract” from Russia and Trumpcare
Post Date: 2017-03-15 11:58:03 by Willie Green
The entire internet seemed to stop in place for 19 minutes as MSNBC's Rachel Maddow unveiled the scoop that she had obtained two pages of Donald Trump's 2005 tax return, but the "mysterious" source of the leak is not much of a mystery, not even to former Trump booster Joe Scarborough. The entire media world seemed to grind to a halt when Rachel Maddow teased that Weve got Trump tax returns, and the suspense built further during the 19-minute tease at the start of her show. The story got a major boost from the Trump White House as well, which released a headline-grabbing statement effectively confirming the scoop in advance. By the time ...

Trump's Chief Strategist May Have Provided False Information To Obtain Voter Registration White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is the subject of a criminal investigation into whether he falsely claimed he was a Florida resident from 2014 to 2016, possibly to avoid paying state income taxes. The Washington Post reported Saturday that state prosecutors in Miami have subpoenaed documents including Bannon's lease of a home in Coconut Grove, Florida. They've also contacted landlords, a gardener and a handyman. The State Attorneys Office for Miami-Dade County declined to provide further details, citing confidentiality rules for active criminal ...

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has asked dozens of U.S. attorneys appointed by former President Obama to submit their resignations, the Department of Justice announced Friday. U.S. attorneys are normally replaced at the beginning of new administrations. Of the 93 U.S. attorneys, 46 remain from the past administration, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ). Sessions asked for the federal prosecutors to resign "in order to ensure a uniform transition," DOJ spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said in a statement. As was the case in prior transitions, many of the United States Attorneys nominated by the previous administration already have left the Department of ...

The ties come just as Twin Metals is suing the U.S. government to overturn a moratorium on access to U.S. Forest Service land where it wants to mine near the Kawishiwi River and Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. ...
Why did Russian kleptocrat pay so much for mansion owned by Trump?
Post Date: 2017-03-10 09:39:21 by Willie Green
PALM BEACH Why did a Russian oligarch pay now-President Donald Trump $95 million for his Palm Beach mansion? Almost a decade later, the answer is less clear than it was at the time of the sale, the largest price paid for a Palm Beach home. In 2008, Dmitry Rybolovlev bought the Palm Beach mansion owned by Trump for $13 million more than the most expensive Palm Beach mansion sale up to that moment. It's been almost a decade since the sale, but the transaction is newsworthy again as new questions surround contacts between members of Trump's administration and Russian government officials. Last week, a Rybolovlev spokesman said his client, who made his fortune in fertilizer ...

Ive lived 55 years in the South, and I grew up liking the Confederate flag. I havent flown one for many decades, but for a reason that might surprise you. I know the South well. We lived wherever the Marine Corps stationed my father: Georgia, Virginia, the Carolinas. As a child, my favorite uncle wasnt in the military, but he did pack a .45 caliber Thompson submachine gun in his trunk. He was a leader in the Ku Klux Klan. Despite my role models, as a kid I was an inept racist. I got in trouble once in the first grade for calling a classmate the N-word. But he was Hispanic. As I grew up and acquired the strange sensation called empathy (strange for boys anyway), I ...
Australia Man Arrested, Faces 20 Years Sentence for Printing a Replica Gun

In the picture the 3D printed replicas are in the lower row. From the left, they are 1,3,4 and 5. The typical 3D printed striations are easily visible on #4. Australia has, in many ways, some of the most extreme gun regulations in the world. By jumping through a great many hoops, and carefully filling out the right forms over several months, you can own and use a significant number of firearms. The regulations are a wish list of most of those proposed by gun hating activists from around the world. The were rushed through the Australian political machine with amazing speed. The trigger event was the Port Arthur massacre. The process was aided by a fully cheering Australian media and the ...
Republicans are becoming Russia's accomplices
Post Date: 2017-03-07 13:06:33 by Willie Green
It would have been impossible to imagine a year ago that the Republican Party's leaders would be effectively serving as enablers of Russian interference in this country's political system. Yet, astonishingly, that is the role the Republican Party is playing.U.S. intelligence services have stated that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election with the intention of swinging it to one side. Knowing how cautious the intelligence community is in making such judgments, and given the significance of this particular finding, the evidence must be compelling. At the very least, any reasonable person would have to conclude that there is enough evidence to warrant a ...

I probably picked the wrong weekend for a long car trip with my satellite radio, the weekend of Donald Trump's "Tweets Heard "Round the World"!!! Hour after hour, the pundits on CNN or MSNBC struggled so mightily to explain the inexplicable -- the pre-breakfast Twitter blast from the 45th President of the United States accusing the 44th President of the United States of bugging his office at Trump Tower, Watergate-style, at the height of the 2016 election campaign. What did President Trump really mean?, the pundits asked. And asked. And asked. Now that Trump is the leader of the free world (whatever that even means anymore), did he use his awesome access to high-level ...
Mr. President, Your Predecessor Actually Wire Tapped ALL Of Our Phones… What Are You Going To Do About It?
Post Date: 2017-03-05 13:56:29 by hondo68
President Trump went on a Tweet storm this morning, presumably because at some point in the last 24 hours he learned that his predecessor President Obama reportedly wire tapped the phone lines in Trump Tower during the 2016 election campaign. In the process of tweeting, the President actually confirmed what many of us already know we are being actively monitored by a domestic police state. We can fully sympathize with the Presidents outrage over being wiretapped, but it should be no surprise to our readers. Back in 2011 we noted, to accusations of being conspiracy theorists, that everything Americans do is being monitored, including real-time monitoring of our ...
