The Investigative Project on Terrorism is advocating for former CIA agent Sabrina de Sousa who is expected to be extradited from Portugal to Italy. Italy as it now stands has sentenced de Sousa to four years in prison.
Agent de Sousa is, in fact, a woman left behind by the administrations of Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton showing no sympathy whatsoever for a woman caught up in global political posturing. Continue reading

Georgia Democrat congressman John Lewis smeared President Elect Donald Trump, and in doing so, Lewis dismissed the legitimacy of the popular vote cast in 30 states.
By now anyone who’s surfed TV news is probably aware of Lewis’ latest Republican slur. Lewis has served in Congress for three decades, dating to the presidency of Ronald Reagan.

While most pundits are focusing on the dustup that followed between Lewis and the president-elect, the significance of Lewis’ statement has escaped virtually every analyst. Continue reading

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange held a presser on Jan. 9 via Twitter and Periscope, and he nailed the US intel report on allegations Russia meddled in the US election. Assange said the “report” is “not an intelligence report…it is quite embarrassing to the US intelligence services.”
Truer words were never spoken. If you read the actual report rather than government-allied media coverage, you’ll agree with Assange regardless of whether you approve of his publishing policy. Why? Continue reading
