'Trump was right': Newly released FBI texts reveal doubt and chaos in Michael Flynn investigation
[Washington Examiner] Newly released internal text messages sent by FBI analysts working on the case against retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in 2016 and 2017 reveal doubt and chaos inside the investigation against President Trump’s first national security adviser, including one missive that said "Trump was right" about a pivotal moment.

"These documents provide information long known to the agents and others at the highest levels of the Department of Justice and the FBI; information long concealed by the Special Counsel and FBI," Flynn’s legal team said in a Thursday court filing. "This evidence shows outrageous, deliberate misconduct by FBI and DOJ — playing games with the life of a national hero."

Flynn pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to FBI investigators about his December 2016 conversations with a Russian envoy, details of which were leaked to the press and generated the controversy that ended his tenure as Trump's national security adviser in the first several weeks of his presidency. But after changing legal teams, Flynn claimed he was innocent and had been set up by the FBI. Attorney General William Barr appointed U.S. Attorney Jeffrey Jensen to review the Flynn case, after which a host of new documents deemed exculpatory by Flynn’s lawyers were discovered and Jensen said he "concluded the proper and just course was to dismiss the case" and recommended this to Barr. The Justice Department has moved to dismiss the case but has met resistance from the presiding judge.

#1  Of course neither former Director Comey or the worthless fok in the graphic had any knowledge of the "doubt and chaos" within the bureau, or what might have prompted it.

Two nursing home administrators are charged with criminal neglect after more than 75 veterans died of COVID-19 when sick and healthy residents were housed together
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • Former superintendent Bennett Walsh, 50, and ex medical director Dr David Clinton, 71, were indicted by a grand jury on Thursday

  • The two are charged over their handling of a coronavirus outbreak at Holyoke Soldiers' Home in Massachusetts

  • Charges stem from their decision in March to combine two understaffed dementia units, packing sick and non-sick residents together, prosecutors said

  • Since March 1, 76 veterans who contracted COVID-19 at the home have died

#2  Sounds like something Bill "Pitbull" Barr can look into.
Posted by: Clem || 09/26/2020 0:31 Comments || Top||

#3  Absolutely not. Former superintendent Bennett Walsh, 50, and ex medical director Dr David Clinton, 71 clearly knew these Vets were going to die. Making this a clear case of 1st degree murder. Just like Cuomo and Minnesota Dicktatter Walz.

Minnesota nursing homes, already the site of 81% of COVID-19 deaths, continue taking in infected patients- Nursing homes accepting infected patients, even as death toll mounts.
Star Tribune MAY 20, 2020

But I guarantee someone was giving out and or making a boatload of money. recallwalz.org sign the petition, forward to your neighbors and families.

'More to come’: AG Maura Healey says other long-term care facilities under scrutiny

Final thought. Using a ChiCom virus to murder Vets is treason. Rope, tree some assembly required.

#4  Cuomo however, will never be charged. On anything.

Father who shielded his three children from a gunman who opened fire at a New York City car dealership loses two jobs because he can't walk due to his injuries
  • [Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] Anthony Jefferson , 39, has lost his two jobs after being shot in the thigh while protecting his children

  • Anthony was fired because he cannot walk due to his injuries

  • Photos showed a bullet hole in the shoes he was wearing during the shooting

  • The three children have been 'traumatized' by the incident and the family hopes to connect them with a therapist

  • The shooting took place Monday night at On The Road Automotive in the Bronx

  • Video obtained by DailyMail.com showed the dad and his children sitting on a couch when a man in a black hoodie began firing through an open glass door

  • The family dove to the floor as the dad tried to shield the kids from gunfire

  • The dad was struck in the thigh by a bullet and is in stable, pH balanced condition

  • Police are searching for two suspects and believe the shooting was gang-related
Sounds like he should justly be coming into quite a bit of money soon, from at least three directions.

Female drill instructors are heading to all-male Marines boot camp in San Diego as the service moves to make entry-level training coed a 'top priority'
[MAIL] Female drill instructors may start training recruits at the Marine Corps' historically all-male recruit depot in San Diego, part of a year-long congressional mandate requiring entry-level training to be coed for the Marines.

Commandant Gen. David Berger made the announcement on Thursday during an event hosted by Defense One, Military.com reports.

'All of our female drill instructors are on the East Coast,' he said. '... We're going to run a couple trials this wintertime actually moving drill instructors from South Carolina to San Diego [on temporary duty] and train recruits on the West Coast to see how this is going to work.'

Female drill instructors train at the Marine Corps' East Coast schoolhouse, eventually leading recruits at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, South Carolina.

#3  I remember when they tried this in IDF for reservists' refreshment training. A girl came up to us - walking and talking like a bad ass (I blame American Marine basic movies). And, when she thought we are not paying her proper attention, shouted "You don't give a damn!". Except the corresponding Hebrew expression translates, literally, as "you don't put a dick". There being 90+ reservists, half a dozen immediately replied - speaking almost in unison - "Excuse me miss, what's my dick doing in your mouth?". She run away crying. All kinds of brass came to scream & threaten us - like what're they going to do, put us all in jail and recruit another reserve unit for the planned operational deployment?

NYT Reporter Eats The Bee's Onion
[Robin Pogrebin Twitter]

This NYT reporter shared a satirical article from the Babylon Bee
entitled "NBA Players Wear Special Lace Collars To Honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg" and treated it like real news.

In fairness to Robin, she's an innocent young naif of 55 (Born May 17, 1965) and the daughter of "feminist icon" (who i never heard of until now) Letty Cottin Pogrebin, which must be where she gets her brains.

#4  This Pogrebin one has been involved in propogating lots of totally false crap. "Co-wrote" a book with another NYT bint that basically dropped out of site the day it was released.

Pogrebin sounds like the sort of name you associate with Stalin's purges...

#4  /\ Separate but equal.

#5  Sorry Clem, false analogy. One doesn't have a choice about one's "race"*. One has a choice about being polite or being a pig. Even if you don't believe** in coronavirus, you should wear a mask on a public transport - not to cause mental anguish to fellow passengers who do believe.

*African Americans are, genetically, closed to white Americans than to black Africans.

**I would have more respect for the beliefs of "covid sceptics" if I didn't view these beliefs as rationalization for, essentially, childish urges to avoid inconvenience.

After Years Of Campaigning By Women's Rights Activists, Britain's Law Commission Is Moving To Make Misogyny A Hate Crime
Based on all this, only straight white men will receive no protection under the law.
[news.trust.org] Misogyny should be made a hate crime in England and Wales, the independent body that recommends legal change said on Wednesday, as it launched a consultation on updating hate crime laws.

The Law Commission said the proposal would give women specific protection from crimes such as assault and harassment where they were targeted on the basis of their sex.

Women's rights activists have long called for such protections, which already exist for race, religion, sexual orientation, disability and transgender identity and can lead to harsher penalties for those convicted.

"Misogyny is the soil which violence against women and girls grows in and this is our chance to tackle it," said opposition lawmaker Stella Creasy, who has campaigned for the change.
