Pelosi slams move to drop Flynn case: 'Barr's politicization of justice knows no bounds'

“Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators in the face of overwhelming evidence – but now, Attorney General Barr’s Justice Department is dropping the case to continue to cover up for the President,” Pelosi said.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday accused Attorney General William Barr of trying to “cover up” for President Trump in dropping the case against his former national security adviser

Another Republican cashing in, along with his family, on early classified briefings he got on the virus. While they were dumping stock they were insisting to the rest of us that everything was fine. They were telling the country that the coronavirus was a Dem hoax.

The brother-in-law, a Trump appointee, sold between $97,000 and $280,000 worth of stock. Burr is under federal investigation over whether he traded on non-public information gathered through his work in the Senate.

Whistleblower: U.S. failed to prepare, sought quick virus fix

“Time after time I was pressured to ignore or dismiss expert scientific recommendations and instead to award lucrative contracts based on political connections,” Dr. Bright said in the call with reporters. “In other words, I was pressured to let politics and cronyism drive decisions over the opinions of the best scientists we have in government.”

A government scientist was ousted after the Trump administration ignored his dire warnings about COVID-19 and a malaria drug President Donald Trump was pushing for the coronavirus despite scant evi…

Why I'm skeptical about Reade's sexual assault claim against Biden: Ex-prosecutor

We can support the #MeToo movement and not support allegations of sexual assault that do not ring true. If these two positions cannot coexist, the movement is no more than a hit squad.

If we must blindly accept every allegation of sexual assault, the #MeToo movement is just a hit squad. And it's too important to be no more than that.

Trump erupts at campaign manager as reelection stress overflows

He can't handle hearing the truth about his lagging poll numbers.

As he huddled with advisers on Friday evening, President Donald Trump was still fuming over his sliding poll numbers and the onslaught of criticism he was facing for suggesting a day earlier that ingesting disinfectant might prove effective against coronavirus.

Fox News Cuts Ties With Diamond & Silk

They are so batsh*tcrazy that even Fox won't let them on the air anymore. The funniest thing about this is that the same conspiracy theories about the virus that these two got canned for are repeated every night by Carlson, Hannity, and Ingraham.

The MAGA superstars lost their Fox gig after pushing absolutely wild conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 pandemic.

So you know how last week the conservatives in Wisconsin tried to steal a state Supreme Court seat by forcing people to go out and vote during this pandemic? Well, the conservative who they were pushing, trump majorly pushed for this guy too, he just lost. As much as they thought they could suppress the vote, they still lost.
Karofsky (the liberal) pulled the upset and won the Supreme Court seat. And Biden won in the democratic primary.
Well done Wisconsin!

I reposted the story about Trump lying and how testing supplies where refused from WHO. FB removed post claiming it went against community standards! I see it is no longer on your site either! Trump has bought out Zuckerberg notes as well?
The Iranians know if there's a surface to air missile unaccounted for, which there undoubtedly is.
Did anyone notice Holmes complete rendition of the phone call? So Sondland first says to trump, ” I’m calling from Kiev..” “Yes, I’m in the Ukraine.” Duh....
Just a thought— Romney steps in after trump leaves. Biden, already backed by DNC and super delegates, gets hammered by clean cut Mitt after low turn out by alienated liberals. Just a thought, not an endorsement....

🚫🚫🚫 NEVER BERNIE "In 1997, Bernie voted for HR 2159 - Foreign Operations FY98 Appropriations bill, which included: $3 billion for Israel, including $1.8 billion in military assistance and $1.2 billion in economic assistance; $2.12 billion for Egypt, including $1.3 billion in military assistance and $815 million in economic assistance; $770 million for former Soviet Republics; and $215 million for international narcotics control and law enforcement. He also voted for HR 4059 - Military Construction FY99 Appropriations bill, which provided $2.82 billion for general military construction. In 1998, Bernie's name was included as a YEA vote on HR 4655, the Iraqi Liberation Act of 1998, which expressed the sense of Congress that it should be the aim of the United States to remove Saddam Hussein from power. President George W. Bush later used the Iraqi Liberation Act to provide justification for military action for the 2003 invasion. In 1999, Bernie voted for HR 2465, which provided $4 billion for military construction, and he voted for HR 3196, which provided: $2.16 billion for military and economic assistance to Israel; $760 million for military and economic assistance to Egypt; $535 million for Eastern European and the Baltic States, including $150 million for assistance to Kosovo; $300 million for military and economic assistance to Jordan; and $285 million for international narcotics control. Writes Ron Jacobs of Counter Punch, 3/31/2003: "For those of us with a memory longer than the average US news reporter, we can remember Bernie's staunch support for Clinton's 100-day bombing of Yugoslavia and Kosovo in 1999. I served as a support person for a dozen or so Vermonters who sat-in in his Burlington office a couple weeks into that war. Not only did Sanders refuse to talk with us via telephone (unlike his Vermont counterparts in the Senate-Leahy and Jeffords), he had his staff call the local police to arrest those who refused to leave until Sanders spoke with them. The following week Sanders held a town hall meeting in Montpelier, VT., where he surrounded himself with sympathetic war supporters and one university professor who opposed the war and Bernie's support for it. During the question and answer part of the meeting, Sanders yelled at two of the audience's most vocal opponents to his position and told them to leave if they didn't like what he had to say." In 2001, Bernie supported HR 1954, which extended the Iran-Libya Sanctions Act of 1996. Following the 9/11 attacks, Bernie voted in favor of H J Res 64 - Authorization for Use of Military Force, which allowed President Bush to use the United States Armed Forces against anyone involved with 9/11 and any nation that harbors these individuals. It should be noted that this measure was passed by an overwhelming vote of 420-1. Even the passionately anti-interventionist Ron Paul supported HJ Res 64. In 2002, Bernie voted against H J Res 114, which authorized President Bush to use military force against Iraq. However, he would continue to support bloated military defense bills that would ultimately be used to sustain the war he allegedly disagreed with. In 2003, Bernie supported HR 5010, which provided $355.1 billion in appropriations for the Defense Department for fiscal year 2003 - an increase of $37.5 billion from 2002 - as well as: $71.6 billion for procurement of aircraft, missiles, weapons, combat vehicles and shipbuilding; $7.4 billion for ballistic missile defense; and $58.4 million for foreign aid, which includes humanitarian assistance, foreign disaster relief and de-mining programs. He also voted in favor of HR 2800 - Foreign Operations Appropriations, FY 2004 bill, which granted $1.8 billion in military and economic assistance to Egypt and $2.2 billion for Israeli military assistance. In 2004, Bernie supported HR 4613, which allocated $25 billion for emergency defense spending for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, and $77.4 billion for the procurement of new weapons. In 2005, Sanders supported HR 2863 - Defense Department FY2006 Appropriations Bill, which provided $50 billion for ongoing operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2006, Bernie voted for HR 5631, which provided $70 billion for ongoing operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2007, he supported HR 1585 - National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008, which granted $187.14 billion for Iraq and Afghanistan operations. In 2009, he voted in favor of HR 2647, which authorized $309 million for research and evaluation, procurement, or deployment of an alternative Missile Defense System in Europe, and also allowed the Secretary of Defense to increase the active-duty number for the US Army to a number greater than otherwise allowed by law up to the 2010 baseline plus 30,000 troops. During the same year, he called closing the torturous gulag at Guantanamo a "complicated issue" and ultimately rejected a proposal to shut it down. In 2011, Bernie co-sponsored S. Res. 85, which urged the UN Security Council to take action to protect civilians in Libya from attack, including the possible imposition of a no-fly zone over Libyan territory. In 2014, Bernie came out in favor of levying economic sanctions (an act of war) against Russia: "The entire world has got to stand up to Putin," he said. "We've got to deal with sanctions." Bernie also didn't object to having his name included - by unanimous consent - in S.498, which backed Israel's brutal, summer-long military assault against Gaza. Some time after, Bernie was berated by his supporters at a town hall meeting for supporting Israel, an exchange that included Sanders screaming at the audience to "shut up" and threatening them with police force. Later that year, Bernie came out in favor of airstrikes against ISIS. He is also in favor of shipping armaments to the Kurds in Iraq for the purpose of fighting off terror groups, a failed strategy that the Obama administration implemented with the Syrian "rebels" some years prior. "I think we should arm them," Sanders said during a CNN interview. "Even that's a difficult issue - to make sure that the people that we arm today don't turn against us tomorrow. But I think providing arms for those people who we can trust and providing air support is in fact something we should be doing." Today, Sanders is a presidential candidate. As mentioned previously, he has stated he is not running against Hillary, and worse, that he will endorse her if he fails to obtain the Democratic Party nomination. He has also up until the publication of this article managed - quite masterfully - to largely avoid talking about his foreign policy positions. The reasons for this are speculative, but one might suspect that it has to do with his spotty, often-hypocritical record. In the same way that Bernie speaks out against corporate cronyism, yet agrees to endorse Hillary Clinton - the Queen of Corporate Cronyism - Bernie has a habit of directly coming out against wars but then finding indirect ways to support them. He didn't back troops being sent to Bosnia, but he favored airstrikes. Bernie voted against the 2003 invasion of Iraq, but then supported bills which allocated money towards the occupation. He says he doesn't want war with Iran, yet he has supported sanctions in the past, and continues to accuse Iran of pursuing nuclear weapons, even as US and Israeli intelligence agencies say otherwise."
