Full title: Judge Ellis Declines Motion by CNN, WaPo to Release Names of Manafort Jurors – Reveals ‘I HAVE BEEN THREATENED’ CNN, Wapo and Buzzfeed are demanding the names and addresses of the Manafort jurors be released to the public. On Friday, Judge Ellis, a Reagan appointee, revealed he has received threats, however; he did not provide details.

    The anti-Trump cable news network has a long history of doxxing threats and harassment. In a motion filed in federal court on Thursday, CNN and several other media outlets requested that the court release the names and home addresses of all jurors in the Paul Manafort fraud case. Jurors haven not yet rendered a verdict on any of the 18 charges against Manafort, who briefly served as President Donald Trump’s campaign manager in 2016. The motion — filed on behalf of CNN, Washington Post, BuzzFeed, POLITICO, New York Times, NBC Universal, and the Associated Press — asks the court to...

    The story of the jihadist training compound in New Mexico takes yet another weird turn today, as federal authorities removed the partially buried trailer, bulldozed a portion of the compound in the process, and yet left key evidence including: ammunition, a bullet proof vest, birth certificates and notebooks, laying around.

    Thursday on CNN’s “Situation Room,” Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) said it would be “grounds for impeachment” if President Donald Trump pardoned his former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort if he was found guilty in the case currently being deliberated by a jury in Virginia. Lieu said, “I believe pardoning Paul Manafort would be grounds for impeachment. Whether Republicans would act on that, I don’t think they would, which is why this November the voters across America have a chance to change the makeup of Congress and put in a real check and balance by putting in Democrats to control.”

    Sometimes, it's the little things that tell the most. Witness the note from Deep State's Justice Department officials: Bruce Ohr, who wrote to a fellow anti-Trump plotter, the U.K.'s Christopher Steele, worried that President Trump's firing of now former FBI director James Comey would expose them all. According to a Fox News report from Catherine Herridge:

    John Brennan rallied numerous high-powered defenders to his corner over his security clearance clash with President Trump, but some well-known special ops heroes are firing back suggesting the former CIA director got what he deserves. Kris “Tanto” Paronto, a former Army Ranger and private security contractor who was part of the CIA team that fought back during the 2012 Benghazi terror attack, accused Brennan of putting his “politics” before those in the field. “He is lucky the security clearance is all he is getting away with,” Paronto told Fox News in an interview on Friday. Responding a day earlier to...

    The 74-year-old woman rescued by Good Samaritans from a robbery and beating in a Midfield store parking lot said she thought her life was about to end. "I just knew that was it for me,'' said Brenda Stinson. "I just thought I wasn't going to be here no more." But the feisty Birmingham woman said she wasn't going without a fight. "I grabbed him between his legs. I grabbed him good between his legs,'' she said. "That's always been my plan because that's a man's weak spot, but I didn't know it was going to come true. I know he's...

    From Rear Adm. Sidney W. Souers, who had the job for a few months in 1946, to the current CIA director, Gina Haspel, selected by President Trump, it's a long list of names that most Americans would not recognize. In other words, we don't see the CIA director in the headlines that much, unless there is something going on like September 11. We definitively have not seen former CIA directors doing politics on partisan cable news shows. Enter John Brennan, who just had his security clearance revoked. In the past, these clearances have been a courtesy to former officials, who...

    It’s a story that would have been all over the media if it had been a conservative, an anti-IRS activist, an NRA member, or any organization liberals think are right leaning. In early August, authorities raided a compound in New Mexico, where three women, a man, and 11 children were found in deplorable conditions. One child’s remains were also found. They were reportedly being trained by Siraj Wahhaj to commit school shootings. Siraj’s father, same name, was an unindicted conspirator of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. To make things more controversial, the judge in the case, Sarah Backus, granted...

    Cardinal Raymond Burke has called for “open recognition” of the Catholic church’s homosexual culture in light of recent revelations of sexual abuse. “I believe that there needs to be an open recognition that we have a very grave problem of a homosexual culture in the Church,” Burke said in an interview Thursday, “especially among the clergy and the hierarchy, that needs to be addressed honestly and efficaciously.” he former head of the church’s equivalent of the Supreme Court said it was already “clear after the studies following the 2002 sexual abuse crisis that most of the acts of abuse were...

    Portland, Oregon, has gradually become the laughingstock of the country. The far left began moving there in droves a few years ago, taking over the city and transforming it to their liking. Taxes and regulations increased. Many of the changes involved implementing more aggressive environmental laws, some that seemed based on junk science. Money was directed into public transit instead of relieving motor vehicle traffic congestion, leading to the fifth-worst traffic in the nation. The TV comedy “Portlandia” emerged, making fun of the city’s nuttiest aspects. The far left in Portland became obsessed with protesting white supremacy through violence. They...

    Full headline: As Muller interviews hookers and indicts Russians, Judicial Watch finds MORE classified Hillary emails Witch Hunt: Though his original mandate was to investigate alleged “Russian collusion” between the Trump campaign and Moscow during the 2016 presidential election cycle, special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe has completely whiffed on the real collusion and real criminal activity that was committed by Hillary Clinton and her campaign. As Russian front companies and Paul Manafort face indictment and hundreds of years in prison respectfully, Mueller’s team has also interviewed New York Madams while also probing for dirt as far away as the Seychelles....

    The Washington Post reported that a former top FBI official, Peter Strzok, who had been assigned to and then removed from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation, had “exchanged politically charged texts disparaging [President] Trump and supporting Democrat Hillary Clinton” and that Strzok was “also a key player in the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server.” SEE VIDEO: https://d.tube/v/thenewsguru/uczp2ygv This is a blockbuster revelation, carrying the possibility of shattering public confidence in a number of long-held assumptions about the criminal justice system generally and the FBI and the Justice Department specifically. The Justice Department should appoint...

The most corrupt G-man in American history getting his start in the most corrupt outpost of the squalid agency — it makes perfect sense. .... Yesterday I called the office of special counsel Robert Mueller, the former U.S. attorney for Boston, who knew all of the six or seven FBI agents who were accused in federal court of taking payoffs from gangsters.

    In 1972, Pope Paul VI warned that "the smoke of Satan has entered the Church of God." We see that smoke throughout the report from a Pennsylvania grand jury, which alleges that more than 300 priests abused more than 1,000 children in six Pennsylvania dioceses -- including 99 priests from the Diocese of Pittsburgh, which was led for 18 years by Cardinal Donald Wuerl, now archbishop of Washington. How bad was the abuse? The report notes that "during the course of this investigation, the Grand Jury uncovered a ring of predatory priests operating within the [Pittsburgh] Diocese who shared intelligence...

    An attorney filed a sentencing memo on behalf of former House IT aide Imran Awan, claiming that President Donald Trump, other Republicans, and “conspiratorial media” attacks serve as a sufficient substitute for jail time for his client’s bank fraud conviction. Attorney Chris Gowen, a former aide to Hillary Clinton, argued to Judge Tanya Chutkan, a President Barack Obama-appointee, that Imran should be spared jail, in part because of Trump, who engaged in “incoherent rambling” about the former IT aide. “Considering … the conduct of several government officials, including the president of the United States, Imran Awan respectfully requests this court...
