FOIA info snipped from US Government.
Sometimes you just have to shake your head at the way our gargantuan federal government is run. I think both the left and the conservatives, as well as all of us in between those two, often get frustrated over how taxpayer dollars are spent or stolen.
At present we are all ignoring a major risk to our country. Continue reading

US President Donald Trump says, “We’re not going into Syria,” as pundits across the land debate missile strikes aimed at ensuring Syria’s Asad regime doesn’t use chemical weapons in the future.
Some Trump supporters decried the strikes while others applauded them. In Congress, hawks on both sides of the aisle praised the strikes.
Meanwhile most of us outside the Beltway class are trying to figure out who we can believe. International organizations aren’t a lot of help, and part of that has to do with verifying claims. Continue reading

An attorney who posts on Twitter as Jeff B/DDHQ (@EsotericCD) noted a fact checker’s gaffe on chemical weapons.
The debate over Syria, deliberately downplayed by both major US political parties during the 2016 presidential election, has rekindled. Critics on both sides of the aisle claim US president Donald Trump erred. Allies in the region bordering Syria are praising Trump.
Those who agree with bombing an air base in the war-torn country believe Trump acted with decisiveness and the show of military power was necessary. It is a rare day that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has anything good to say about Trump, but on the matter of the airstrikes, McCain had nothing but praise.
Included in the discussion is a strangely timed statement by Hillary Clinton and an admission of sorts from Russia. Continue reading

Klayman announced the complaint against Schiff on April 6. (Snip/Twitter @LarryEKlayman)
Larry Klayman, founder of Freedom Watch, has announced filing an ethics complaint against Democrat congressman Adam Schiff (CA).
Schiff is ranking member for Dems on the committee investigating allegations about Russia’s impact on the US presidential election. The California congressman appeared to publicly clear President Barack Obama’s former national security adviser recently although Susan Rice has contradicted her own statements about spying on the Trump campaign. Questions have arisen about the distribution of classified information. Continue reading
Rice promoted the video theory as the cause of the attacks on US properties and persons in Benghazi. (Snip: NRCC video)
Now that the left has succeeded in the effort to push Republican congressman Devin Nunes out of the ‘Russia’ investigation, the rest of America should be asking questions about Democrats’ point man Adam Schiff (CA).
Did comments Schiff made recently about Susan Rice make him unfit to be involved in investigating a matter raising questions about the lawfulness of actions by Rice? Rice is a long time Washington insider whose work has had a significant impact on lives of people around the globe.
What did Schiff say? Continue reading

As we said on the Web, this tweet has not aged well. (From Rice archives on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AmbRice44 )
Despite contradicting herself again, Susan Rice, former national security adviser to former president Barack Obama, hasn’t drawn gotcha questions from leftstream (formerly ‘mainstream’) media. Rice is at the center of a major controversy on the level of the Watergate scandal. Select media who bring many Americans their carefully crafted “news” continue to dismiss gigantic, negative implications for those of us outside the Beltway. Continue reading
Snip from photo of former presidents George W. Bush with Bill Clinton featured at the George W. Bush Institute
As most legacy media focus on allegations about Russia and the 2016 US presidential election, President Donald Trump is the target. Thus far, newspapers like The Washington Post have run story after story usually sourced to anonymous “officials”.
No charges have been filed against anyone. The US government on all levels has been less than forthcoming about all of this. We do know some things for sure, and they have to do with the Clintons’ affairs in world politics and former president Barack Obama. Continue reading
