Do you think Trump will pardon Flynn?

Ok, is this a first of charges ? *Breaking*


*ring ring*
Donald Jr: " Daddy, Flynn just plead guilty to lying to the feds, I lied to the feds too..."
Donald Jr: "Daddy are you there? Daddy, daddy? "

Believe in conspiracy theories? You're probably a narcissist

Psychologists from the University of Kent carried out three online studies:

.Hundreds of people completed questionnaires on conspiracy beliefs
.They showed conspiracies are likely to be attractive to narcissists
.But while low self-esteem, narcissism and belief in conspiracies are strongly linked, it is not clear that one causes the other, they add

Trump: " they don't look like Indians to me"

The racism is strong in this one....for years

Trump White House ethics lawyer resign

By JOSH GERSTEIN 11/27/2017 05:09 AM EST
The ranks of former White House ethics lawyers available to comment on the ongoing controversies engulfing President Donald Trump's administration has just grown by one — an attorney who's certain to offer a much different perspective than the most prominent figures now ensconced as seemingly permanent fixtures on cable news.

After almost a year in the White House counsel's office tackling a raft of ethics and financial disclosure issues, James Schultz resigned last week and is returning to private practice at the Philadelphia-based law firm where he previously worked, Cozen O'Connor.

Schultz insists his exit is unrelated to any of those myriad controversies, but simply triggered by a desire to get back to private law work and back to Philadelphia, where his family has remained.

"That was something Don [McGahn, the White House counsel] and I discussed very early on," Schultz told POLITICO on Sunday. "I was interested in continuing with private practice and saw this as a tremendous opportunity to go serve and get things up and running and the plan was to move on about this time. ... These are typically year-to-about-18-months-type positions."

Asked if he plans to join the public, often-televised debate on alleged conflicts of interest involving Trump administration figures, Schultz said he expects to, but doesn't plan to make it a full-time job.

"That'll be something I'd be willing to do, certainly, getting out and talking about the good work the Trump administration is doing on these issue," he said. "I will be out, but I don't plan to make a career out of being a pundit on TV. ... I'm planning to have a robust law practice."

Schultz said some of the media attention to ethics issues in the Trump administration has been valid because of the complexity of the personal holdings of business-sector veterans joining the Cabinet and other top positions. However, some of that concern has been exaggerated and distorted, he said.

Trump Campaign Stops Paying Donald Jr.’s Legal Bills

The Trump campaign has stopped paying legal bills for Donald Trump Jr. and is setting up a legal defense fund to cover the costs for him and other campaign staffers related to investigations into Russian election meddling, said a person familiar with the matter.

A fund for campaign staffers should be running in a few weeks, the person said, adding that the exact structure, how it would be administered and who would be eligible are still being finalized. It also hasn’t been determined yet whether President Donald Trump or the Trump Organization could contribute to the fund.

The Trump campaign’s legal bills have already topped more than $2 million this year, including payments related to the Russia investigations, as well as $287,924 for Trump Jr. Separately, in September, the Republican National Committee paid $166,527 to Alan Futerfas, who represents Trump Jr., according to the party’s latest filing with the Federal Election Commission.

With the investigation likely to go well into 2018, those bills could continue to mount. The Trump campaign is limited in how much it can raise per person between now and 2020, while a legal defense fund would have no cap.

White House lawyer Ty Cobb said last week that the president would also assume responsibility for his own legal bills, which could exceed $1 million. Trump’s legal costs had previously been covered by the RNC, which paid $131,250 to Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow and $100,000 to attorney John Dowd.

Cat hair leads to arrest of woman for sending explosives to Obama

Cat hair “shed” light on the identity of a Texas woman accused of sending explosives to Barack Obama.

Julia Poff, a 46-year-old from outside Houston, is charged in federal court with sending explosives in 2016 to the then-president, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Social Security Administration Commissioner Carolyn Colvin.

Federal court documents filed last week say that Abbott opened his package, but that it did not detonate because “he did not open it as designed.”

The ones sent to Obama and Social Security were “rendered safe” after screenings, according to investigators' court testimony reported from KPRC.

The sender’s spree led to a search for the failed bomber, and they focused on a shipping label on the Abbott package, which had allegedly been sent to Poff from an eBay purchase before being turned into a weapon.

The package sent to Obama also contained the fruits of a feline's follicles, which a judge said were “microscopically consistent with the hair of one of Poff’s cats.”

Investigators said that Poff said that she sent the explosive to Obama because she did not like him, and that the packages to Abbott and Social Security were based on her not receiving support from her ex-husband or the agency.

Poff was also charged with fraud of the SNAP food stamps program and making a false bankruptcy declaration.

A judge in the case ordered that she be detained because she is a danger to the community and a flight risk.


ROFL...Trump says Doug Jones is soft on crime.

*Read his soft on crime record.....

In January 1998, Eric Rudolph bombed the New Woman All Women Health Care Center in Birmingham. Jones became responsible for coordinating the state and federal task force in the aftermath, and advocated for Rudolph to be tried first in Birmingham before being extradited and tried in Georgia for his crimes in that state, such as the Centennial Olympic Park bombing.

16th Street Baptist Church bombing case
Jones prosecuted Thomas Edwin Blanton Jr. and Bobby Frank Cherry, two members of the Ku Klux Klan, for their roles in the 1963 16th Street Baptist Church bombing. The case was reopened the year before Jones was appointed, but did not pick up traction until his appointment. A federal grand jury was called in 1998 which piqued Cherry's ex-wife, Willadean Cherry's, attention and led her to call the FBI to report her testimony. Willadean then introduced Jones to family and friends who reported their own experiences from the time of the bombing. A key piece of evidence was a tape from the time of the bombing in which Blanton stated that he had had to meet up with others to make the bomb. Jones was deputized in order to argue in state court and was able to indict Blanton and Cherry in 2000. Blanton was found guilty in 2001, and Cherry was found guilty in 2002. Blanton was up for parole in 2016, at which Jones spoke in opposition to his potential release. Blanton's parole was denied. Cherry died in prison in 2004.

Jones left office in 2001 and returned to private practice. In 2004, he was court-appointed General Special Master in an environmental clean-up case involving Monsanto in Anniston, Alabama. In 2007 Jones was honored with the 15th Anniversary Civil Rights Distinguished Service Award from the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. Also in 2007, Jones testified before the United States House Committee on the Judiciary about the importance of re-examining crimes of the Civil Rights Era. He created the Birmingham firm Jones & Hawley, PC with longtime friend Greg Hawley in 2013.He was named one of B-Metro Magazine's Fusion Award winners in 2015.In 2017 he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Alabama chapter of the Young Democrats of America.

Jones supports stronger protection of civil rights. He has cited the Charlottesville rally and the Charleston church massacre as examples of racial issues to be addressed. Jones also supports the reversal of mandatory three-strikes laws for non-violent offenses to give judges flexibility in giving sentences. In an interview with The Birmingham News he stated that he opposes additional restrictions on abortion (such as proposals to ban abortion after the 20th week of gestation), saying current laws on the issue are sufficient.

Yeah, Trump, I could see how angry you are that he is soft on crime. You don't like him cause he went after your racist comrades
