  1. Robert Mueller submits Russia report Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation has concluded, and he has now submitted his long-awaited report on the findings of that probe to Attorney General William Barr, as required by the special counsel law. A senior Justice Department official has told CBS News that Mueller is not recommending any further indictments. The Justice Department also confirmed that the "principal conclusions" of the report will be made public. Barr will now summarize Mueller's report for lawmakers, also in accordance with the law. It is not clear whether the report or any part of it will be made public -- that's left to Barr's discretion. In a letter to top lawmakers on the judiciary committees, Barr said he anticipated that he might be able to advise them of Mueller's principal conclusions "as soon as this weekend." Special counsel spokesperson Peter Carr said in a statement that Mueller will be concluding his service in the coming days. A small number of staff will remain to assist in closing the operations of the office for a period of time. A White House official confirmed that White House attorneys Emmet Flood and Pat Cipollone are with President Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. ******************************************************* Too bad for the Democrats, there was no collusion and no further indictments. Crying will now commence.

    RIP 20th Century Fox

    They wanted to get their greedy hands on all the movies already produced for streaming. The rest will go in the trashcan.

  4. Hollywood Loves Guns in Movies — In Real Life, Not So Much “Hollywood is helping to lead the charge to destroy the NRA while giving money to the pro-gun control campaign,” former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said on Friday night, filling in for Fox News host Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle.” “But if they want to take a stand on violence, then perhaps they should look at their own material.” Chaffetz was referring to the scores of liberal celebrities who have attacked the Second Amendment in recent years, all while their shtick on TV and movies is centered far too often around using guns. Sixty-one percent of broadcast prime-time TV episodes featured violence during the “November sweeps” period. Plus, 39 percent of those 287 shows had gun-related violence in them, according to the Parents Television Council. This is all pure hypocrisy from Hollywood. The entertainment elites say they want to ban guns — when these weapons are the very reason many of them are successful. “These are the same people who thought Hillary Clinton was not only going to be president, but a good president,” actor Antonio Sabato Jr. told Chaffetz. “She left people to die in Benghazi. Let’s not forget that. We had the Academy Awards the other day protected by LAPD, armed bodyguards and guns all over the place.” **************************************** They love guns in Hollywood, what is a good movie without one.
  5. Facebook staff had access to hundreds of millions of people's passwords Facebook revealed on Thursday it didn't properly mask the passwords of hundreds of millions of its users and stored them in an internal database that could be accessed by its staff. The company said it discovered the passwords during a security review in January and launched an investigation. Facebook did not say for how long they had been storing passwords in this way. It will be notifying hundreds of millions of Facebook users and tens of thousands of Instagram users if their passwords were involved. "To be clear, these passwords were never visible to anyone outside of Facebook and we have found no evidence to date that anyone internally abused or improperly accessed them," Pedro Canahuati, a Facebook vice president wrote on Thursday. He added that Facebook typically "masks people's passwords when they create an account so that no one at the company can see them." Keeping passwords hashed, or encrypted, is widely regarded as fundamental to cybersecurity, as passwords exist to for users to authenticate their identity without others knowing how. ************************************************** Trusty ol' Facebook is at it again, this time admitting they never masked millions of passwords for privacy.
  6. ISIS caliphate has officially crumbled and last stronghold liberated BAGHOUZ, Syria -- The caliphate has crumbled, and the final offensive is over. While the official announcement hasn’t yet been made – Fox News has been told that this village, the last ISIS stronghold, is liberated. It’s the first time since we’ve been here in Syria for five days that the bombs have stopped dropping and the gunfire has disappeared. We have witnessed the end of the caliphate – the brutal empire that once ruled over 8 million people – is gone. Troops here are now bringing down the black flags of ISIS. The flags no longer fly over the town, instilling fear. The last five days, Fox News has witnessed the last major offensive up close -– with U.S.-backed SDF forces attacking ISIS from three sides, pushing the fighters back, house to house, then tent to tent, against the Euphrates River. Inside Baghouz, it’s easy to see how they hid for so long – not just in tunnels but trenches and hundreds of cubby holes covered by tarpaulins, which blend in perfectly to the dirt. In the end, the majority surrendered. In fact, since the start of the year about 60,000 have dripped into the desert, and most are now held in camps. ******************************************************* Here is another mess from Obama that is finally cleaned up, but Syria will take decades to recover from it.

    Where’s Ben?

    He is probably in Iowa, maybe Beto knows.
  8. Undeclared Joe Biden pulls further ahead of Democratic primary pack in new poll A new poll shows former Vice President Joe Biden gaining momentum as the front-runner among Democratic primary voters. The results of a Morning Consult survey released Tuesday has Biden, who hasn't declared his candidacy yet, at 35 percent among all Democratic primary voters, with Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., trailing at 27 percent. The other candidates fall far behind in the single digits. The poll also illustrates that support for Biden has been in an upswing since Morning Consult’s poll last week, gaining 4 percent. Among voters in early primary states, Biden is faring even better, bringing in 39 percent, with Sanders following at 28 percent. That signals a 6 percent upward tick for the former vice president. Biden also has the highest favorability ratings of the pack, with 45 percent holding a “very favorable” view of the potential candidate compared to Sanders at 34 percent. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is viewed as the most unfavorable, with 17 percent viewing her as “somewhat” or “very” unfavorable. Biden is widely expected to announce soon that he is running for president. Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., said last week that "[Biden has] told me that he is all but certain he is going to run." ************************************************ The one who has said the least is the highest in the polling, it makes one wonder.
  9. California man arrested for riding horse while drunk A Santa Cruz, California man who allegedly engaged in a little drunken horseplay last weekend found out that riding a horse while intoxicated can be just as hazardous as operating a vehicle in the eyes of the law. California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers arrested a man riding a horse along State Route 152 near Watsonville, in the southeastern part of Santa Cruz County, for public intoxication on Sunday. “Remember it is illegal to not only drive a vehicle under the influence, but also a bicycle, motorized scooter, hoverboard, and a horse,” CHP wrote in an Instagram post. CHP referred to the man as a “suspected DUI rider,” in the post. “Yes, we did say rider!” The man was not arrested for driving under the influence, but after an investigation, he may be charged with DUI, Fox’s Bay Area station KTVU reported. The man was taken to a sobering center and the horse was brought home by a family member, KTVU said. ************************************************* The Nanny state is at it again, this time they busted someone for drinking a beer and riding a horse.
  10. Biden Accidentally Says He’s Running, Crowd Chants ‘Run, Joe, Run!’ America’s infamously gaffe-prone former vice president, Joe Biden, signaled he is likely running for president in 2020 in the most characteristically Biden-esque way. He accidentally announced he was running before quickly correcting himself at a dinner in Dover, Delaware on Saturday night. “I know I get criticized. I’m told I get criticized by the new left,” Biden said told the audience at the First State Democratic Dinner. “I have the most progressive record of anybody running for the — anybody who would run.” Joe Biden: "I'm told I get criticized by the New Left. I have the most progressive record of anybody running for the … anybody who would run" pic.twitter.com/Y5rqCpxEZR — Howard Mortman (@HowardMortman) March 17, 2019 Before Biden even had a chance to walk the statement back, the audience was already on its feet, cheering him on, chanting, “Run, Joe, run!” “I didn’t mean it!” Biden insisted, laughing, adding, “Of anybody who would run, because, folks, we have to bring this country back together again.” As Politico noted, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) told reporters that he believes Biden will run. He said Biden himself told him, “he is all but certain he is going to run.” ************************************************* Joe puts his foot in his mouth almost every speech he gives. No wonder Obama never let him do anything.
  11. Reuters reporter takes heat for sitting on Beto O’Rourke hacker story until after Senate race against Cruz Reuters is facing ethical questions after admitting that reporter Joseph Menn sat on an unfavorable story about media darling Beto O’Rourke until after his crucial Senate race against Ted Cruz. Reuters published its report Friday on the “Cult of the Dead Cow,” a famous group of hackers credited with inventing the term “hacktivism,” and revealed that now-2020 presidential candidate O'Rourke was a member. The group is responsible for a variety of shady activity like stealing credit card numbers to pay for long-distance telephone service, violating copyright laws and hacking into computers, according to the report, which stressed that O'Rourke himself never "engaged in the edgiest sorts of hacking activity." The report also revealed that a teenage Beto, in connection with the group, wrote bizarre fiction stories under the name “Psychedelic Warlord” -- including one story detailing the murder of two children. The report was embarrassing for O’Rourke, who expressed regret for his past actions and writings shortly after the article's publication. But the reporter, it turns out, knew about this history since 2017 -- and sat on it. According to Menn, members of the hacking group were protecting O'Rourke's identity and wouldn't confirm his affiliation unless the reporter promised not to write about it until after the November election. They apparently struck a deal. ********************************************************** How corrupt is the system when the media hides stories to help Democrats win? This sounds like collusion.
  12. Why did Kamala Harris let Herbalife off the hook? At a rally in late January in her native Oakland, Calif., U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris announced her intention to seek the presidential nomination by casting herself as a tireless advocate of men and women who lack power and wealth. The former attorney general of California — who since 2017 has been the state’s junior senator — described her first appearance in the courtroom, as a young San Francisco district attorney. “I knew I wanted to protect people,” Harris told the crowd of 20,000. “And I knew that the people in our society who are most often targeted by predators are also most often the voiceless and vulnerable.” But as the attorney general of the nation’s largest state — and therefore one of the most powerful law enforcement officials in the nation — Harris declined to investigate Herbalife, the nutritional supplement company that has been accused of fraudulent marketing practices. Documents exclusively obtained by Yahoo News show that in 2015, prosecutors in the San Diego office of the California attorney general sent Harris a lengthy memorandum that argued for an investigation into Herbalife and requested resources in order to undertake such an investigation. Similar investigations into Herbalife were already taking place elsewhere. About three weeks after the San Diego letter was sent, Harris received the first of three donations to her campaign for the U.S. Senate from Heather Podesta, the powerful Washington lobbyist whose ex-husband Tony’s firm, then called the Podesta Group, had worked for Herbalife since 2013. Heather Podesta’s own lobbying firm, Heather Podesta and Partners, would soon be hired by Herbalife, too. Harris did not pursue an investigation, even as the Federal Trade Commission proceeded with an investigation of its own, which had been opened the previous March and which suggested that sufficient grounds for such scrutiny did exist. In fact, the San Diego letter had meticulously laid out those grounds, pointing out that Herbalife presented itself to the public as a lawful enterprise, but that it could nevertheless be “engaged in less obvious conduct” that potentially harmed both Herbalife distributors and Herbalife customers. *************************************************** Kamala is in trouble again, this time it's about Herbalife.

    FBI busts actresses, CEOs in college admissions scam

    So why are people claiming this is a case of white privilege? It's a liberal state, with a liberal college, and liberal parents. These people were not just let go because they were white, they were arrested.
