This place has become a sewer full of right wing vermin who have hijacked the jury system and ran most Democrats out. Too bad the administrators have allowed this to happen.

House Russia investigation chair asks Democrats to cool public criticism

The new leader of the House Russia investigation asked House Democrats to cool their barrage of criticism, as part of a reset for the House Intelligence Committee that both sides hope will hold.

Rep. Mike Conaway asked Democrats on the Intelligence Committee to curb their critiques for a bit while he got his footing as the new leader of the high-stakes probe, two sources familiar with the request told CNN.

In other words, "give me time to get the lies straight".

Screw you Mr. Conaway.

Barf worthy....

'nuff said.

Fact-checking President Trumps address to Congress

President Trump’s maiden address to Congress was notable because it was filled with numerous inaccuracies. In fact, many of the president’s false claims are old favorites that he trots out on a regular, almost daily basis. Here’s a roundup of 13 of the more notable claims, in the order in which the president made them.

Same old crap, this time read from a teleprompter.

Did they drug him this time so he wouldn't make a hysterical ass out of himself?

The FBI Has Quietly Investigated White Supremacist Infiltration of Law Enforcement

White supremacists and other domestic extremists maintain an active presence in U.S. police departments and other law enforcement agencies. A striking reference to that conclusion, notable for its confidence and the policy prescriptions that accompany it, appears in a classified FBI Counterterrorism Policy Guide from April 2015, obtained by The Intercept. The guide, which details the process by which the FBI enters individuals on a terrorism watchlist, the Known or Suspected Terrorist File, notes that “domestic terrorism investigations focused on militia extremists, white supremacist extremists, and sovereign citizen extremists often have identified active links to law enforcement officers,” and explains in some detail how bureau policies have been crafted to take this infiltration into account.

In Trump We Trust: Inauguration prompts celebration in Russia

(Reuters) - The Kremlin may have spent years reviling America, but Russians hoping Donald Trump will usher in a new era of detente marked his inauguration on Friday with parties and trinkets from commemorative coins to "matryoshka" nesting dolls in his image.

Washington was turned into a virtual fortress with an estimated 900,000 people -- backers and protesters -- descending on the capital. In London, anti-Trump activists draped a banner reading "Build Bridges Not Walls" from Tower Bridge. Protests were planned across western Europe on Friday and Saturday.

But according to Gennady Gudkov, a Putin critic and former lawmaker, Russia is in the grip of "Trumpomania", with state media giving the President-elect blanket air time at the expense of more mundane and sometimes depressing domestic news stories.

That, he said, was in part because the U.S. election, unlike elections in Russia, had been unpredictable. The Kremlin is hoping Trump will ease sanctions imposed over the annexation of Crimea, team up with Russia against Islamic State, and cut back NATO military activity near Russian borders.

How long before the Trump administration tries for absolute power?

Twitler already has more baggage going into the White House than Nixon had coming out. Even with the insane power grab that will likely take place on 1/20 by the right, there is no way that Trump is going to dodge the issues that are plaguing him. He will be facing unprecedented push-back.

Hence the need for an "event", or events, to allow him gather enough power and support to at least get through a first term.

Regardless of how a person thinks 9/11 happened, it is undeniable that GW Bush, who was most likely destined to be a poor-to-failing one term president, was able to gain more power than most other presidents ever had - practically overnight.

And Trump is in worse shape than Bush ever was.
