Looks like something big is up with Robert Mueller and Julian Assange

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been holed up in the basement of Ecuador’s embassy in the United Kingdom for so long, as he’s tried to evade an arrest warrant from Sweden, one might be tempted to think of him as having always lived there. Ecuador has consistently shown no fear of thumbing its nose at Swedish authorities. But now, suddenly, Ecuador is cracking down on Assange in a big way – and we can’t help but observe the timing.

Former longtime Donald Trump adviser Sam Nunberg announced to the media a few weeks ago that he had been subpoenaed by a Robert Mueller grand jury. Nunberg was being compelled to testify about his communications with several Trump-Russia figures, but he made a point of saying on television that he wasn’t willing to sell out his friend Roger Stone over his communications with Julian Assange during the election. This made clear that Mueller is looking to have the grand jury indict Stone. Based on Mueller’s willingness to indict foreign nationals in this scandal, this also made clear that Mueller is looking to indict Assange.


I'm not familiar with the Palmer Report. Does this sound credible?

This says it perfectly.

If being a 'libtard' means I want to stop kids from getting shot at school, that I think everyone should be able to marry the person they love, whether that person is a man or a woman, if it means I put science over religion, and equality over division, then I am a Rabid LIBTARD

NYT conservative rips evangelicals: Stormy Daniels isnt a shock to that culture

it’s a representation of it’

In a back and forth on the New York Times editorial page, conservative columnist Bret Stephens trashed the “institutional Christian right” for remaining in bed with President Donald Trump despite credible revelations that he had an affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels.

“Did you find the Stormy Daniels interview sort of … boring? I did, and it seems like a tribute to Donald Trump that I could be listening to a woman talking about how she swatted his rear end with a magazine that had his picture on the front and think, ‘Well, at least he had underwear on,'” Collins wrote before adding, “It’s just that we now have a president whose sleaze rating is so high it’s hard to get shocked by anything.”


“Exactly. It’s boring because nothing about this president scandalizes us anymore,” Stephens wrote. “I can remember when news of Bill Clinton’s alleged affair with Gennifer Flowers broke when he was running for president in 1992. Conservatives erupted: The man was not fit to sit in the Oval Office!”

“Nowadays it’s a different story,” Stephen’s continued. “Right-wing political culture, including the institutional Christian right, has been pornogrified. The Stormy Daniels affair isn’t a shock to that culture; it’s a representation of it. This is the bed conservatives made, so to speak, when they adopted Trump as one of their own, so they shouldn’t be surprised by anyone who turns up in there with them.”

Rick Santorum, pay attention.


Dana Goldberg

Rick Santorum said kids should do something for themselves instead of looking to others to fix their problems.

They just organized a multimillion person movement in 800 locations around the world, Rick.

You weren’t even allowed to debate on the mainstage in the last election.

I know it's "The Onion", but I can't find anything to laugh about here.

NAACP Issues Travel Warning For Black Americans Visiting Own Backyards

BALTIMORE—In response to a number of disturbing incidents occurring in the area, civil rights organization NAACP issued a travel advisory Thursday warning black Americans to exercise extreme caution when visiting their own backyards. “We urge African Americans to be very careful and vigilant when venturing out onto your patios, decks, and even front porches,” said NAACP president Derrick Johnson, recommending that visitors to their personal property remain empty-handed for the duration of their trip. “We strongly advise against running or making any sudden movements while you’re in the yard behind your house. Additionally, please take a careful, methodical approach to mowing the lawn or hanging up laundry.” At press time, a violent incident involving law enforcement necessitated an expansion of the travel warning into living rooms.
