      Solid LA lawyer. Young, as an undergrad bashed multiculturalism, and wrote gay men could avoid getting AIDS by not being promiscuous.

      Politico: “Senate Democrats are also expected to grill Lee on a 1999 article he wrote while at Harvard Law School, calling “deeply flawed” a statistic that 1 in 4 girls is a victim of rape or attempted rape. Lee cited Christina Hoff Sommers, a philosopher on feminism, who has criticized the methodology behind the statistic.”

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/05/14/survey-only-2-in-15-americans-aware-of-soaring-illegal-immigration-to-u-s/

    “The latest Harvard/Harris Poll reveals that when Americans are asked how many illegal aliens are arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, only about 13 percent answer correctly. Meanwhile, about 76 percent of Americans believe illegal immigration levels are vastly lower than they actually are.

    For example, there were nearly 100,000 border apprehensions in April, alone. This puts illegal immigration at the southern border on track to outpace every year of illegal immigration under former President Obama and take the U.S. back to Bush era levels. At current rates, experts project there to be 863,000 border apprehensions this Fiscal Year, though this only counts illegal aliens who are caught at the border and does not include those who successfully cross.”

        I just don’t think many people are real New Yorkers anymore. They don’t remember Dinkins with all of the crime and dirt because they were never there. They have NO idea what Times Square used to look like (I showed a former nanny who was moving there and she was shocked- Democrat, of course.) So many new young left leaning millennials have come to the city for university and jobs.

        Illegals vote in NYC and have more rights than citizens. Money talks and De Blasio is a magician specializing in money disappearance tricks (the “now you see it, now you don’t” type. Just as HiLIARy while SOS – $billions went … puff!). Main rule: you can’t look into De Blasios’s wife’s purse or off-shore bank account.

          I think DiBlasio’s (and other Dimmie mayors) shenanigans were financed for too many years by the Federal government, and had greatly accelerated under Baraq Hussein Obola.

          The Indonesian Usurper slapped up thousands of federally- subsidized, section 8 dumps in sanctuary cities across the country.

          Enemedia lauded these firetraps as necessary “workforce housing,” which made no sense as Americans birthrates were in a decline. Now we know it was really to facilitate human trafficking, ala UN’s Agenda 21 New World Order.

          I read here recently that Ben Carson will block illegal aliens from moving into these high-density HUD developments. Good! It’s about time! Remove the “monetary incentives” and watch deBlasio’s slave trade wither on the vine.

    Did Catherine Herridge just say the Comey-Brennan email chain refers to the Steele Dossier as ‘Crown material’? As in Her Majesty’s Secret Service? As in retired MI6 hothead Christopher Steele (‘retired hothead’ meaning, he no longer serves any official capacity, so don’t bother asking’)?

    ‘Crown material’ sounds mighty officious. Hmm.

      Without my own taking of a position on abortion; my observation is that, had the Left not gone so completely over the cliff to the left on this (fetuses are parasites, not human. Abortion even after live birth, etc); then the pendulum may not have swung to the other extreme here.

      They can’t fathom getting along to get along, or leaving well-enough alone. It’s their way or the highway.

      So they’ll probably see more pendulum-swings on other topics as well.

        And to my mind, it is a clear testament of just how thouroghly brainwashed and cowed, and boiled slowly we conservatives have become, that its only when they talk openly of killing a delivered baby that we get ‘outraged’?

        We only finally begin to rally, when there are over 100,000 illegals crossing the border, every month.

        Could go on and on. Why have we got to this point? Because we allowed ourselves to get “conned” that Republicons in Congress, and in the Whitehouse, were representing us, and were just weak, lazy, greedy or stupid.

        And, so didn’t understand HOW elections are manipulated in this country, by the Uniparty.

      “While Mr. Durham has conducted criminal investigations into allegations of high-level wrongdoing by law enforcement and national security officials, including the F.B.I.’s handling of organized crime informants and the C.I.A.’s torture of detainees, his new review does not rise to that level, the person said.”

      So what’s the Game Plan? Is this why Dannehy was brought in? Durham is the go-between separating Dannehy from Horowitz? Moving parts here that I don’t understand.

      To wit: “Instead, he will have the authority only to read documents the government has already gathered and to request voluntary witness interviews.”

      At least in part that includes info collected by Horowitz from the DOJ/FBI side, plus info Durham himself has already collected (since October 2018). Voluntary witnesses also includes non-employees… which Horowitz has no jurisdiction over. Durham then advises Dannehy to dig further from a prosecutorial angle??? This is either really good… or really bad.

      “Mr. Barr, who asked Mr. Durham to oversee that review several weeks ago, is also taking a personal role in it, the person said. He has been discussing it with Ms. Haspel; Christopher A. Wray, the F.B.I. director; and Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence.”

      Barr in a personal role: good. Haspel, Wray, Coats: not good.

      Irony: “But the fact that Mr. Durham is conducting only a limited review, not a criminal investigation, also suggests the Justice Department has still not identified sufficient facts to open such an inquiry. The legal standard is whether facts exist that reasonably indicate that a specific crime has been committed.”

      Mm. Facts. Fungible Facts of Fauxosity.

    From The White House….

    SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS should advance FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Yet too many Americans have seen their accounts suspended, banned, or fraudulently reported for unclear “violations” of user policies.

    No matter your views, if you suspect political bias caused such an action to be taken against you, share your story with President Trump.

    Catherine Herridge of Fox News just said on Shannon Bream’s show that Comey decided to brief Pres-elect Trump about the Steele Dossier on his (Comey’s) own.

    This is not true. Clapper had Comey stay behind at Pres-elect Trump’s security briefing to tell Pres-elect Trump about the Steele Dossier, so Clapper could leak to CN&N and CN&N would have a reason to report that Pres-elect Trump had been briefed on the Dossier.

    Even Comey’s own notes said he, Comey, told Pres-elect Trump about the Dossier as CN&N was looking for a hook, a reason, to report on the Steele Dossier.

    How could Catherine Herridge have made such an error?

    I just saw this piece from Brian Cates over at Epochtimes. I am puzzled. There are two articles now, one from Jeff Carlson and one from Cates claiming that Rosenstein is now helping.

    What I don’t get for example is why would Rosenstein appoint the Special Counsel and then seemingly switch sides to help Trump? Have a look at the Cates piece linked below and comment if you can make any sense of this. Maybe it’s just nonsense?

      From the article a conversation between Conrad Black and Trump:

      “…We’ve known each other a long time,” the president told me, “but that wasn’t any part of the reason. Nor has any of the supportive things you’ve said and written about me.” I suggested that he knew ”better than anyone” the antics of some U.S. prosecutors. (I had had Robert Mueller as director of the FBI, which we caught installing illegal bugging devices in our home in New York and in many falsehoods; James Comey as deputy attorney-general, and Patrick Fitzgerald, now Comey’s counsel, as U.S. attorney in Chicago. They were all, as my distinguished caller on Monday has described Comey, “bad cops.”) We moved briefly on to generalities, greetings to wives, I thanked him for his call and again for the purpose of his call, and the conversation ended…”
