FBI strikes back at the DNC

The FBI struck back at the Democratic National Committee on Thursday, accusing it of denying federal investigators access to its computer systems and hamstringing its investigation into the infiltration of DNC servers by Russia-backed hackers.

“The FBI repeatedly stressed to DNC officials the necessity of obtaining direct access to servers and data, only to be rebuffed until well after the initial compromise had been mitigated. This left the FBI no choice but to rely upon a third party for information,” a senior law enforcement official told BuzzFeed News in a statement. “These actions caused significant delays and inhibited the FBI from addressing the intrusion earlier.”

The DNC said the FBI had never asked for access to their hacked servers, BuzzFeed News reported on Wednesday.

A DNC source familiar with the investigation tried to downplay that report on Thursday, hours before the FBI statement was issued. The fact that the FBI didn’t have direct access to the servers was not “significant,” the source said.

“I just don’t think that that’s really material or an important thing,” the source continued. “They had what they needed. There are always haters out here.”

Lack of Police? I wonder why?

The people are terrorists and killers

Some believe specialized units may be the problem.

The rank and file believe that all these specialized units that have been created under this commissioner is what’s depleting patrol,” said Lt. Ryan.
Drudge picked up on this CBS (WJZ) news story about Baltimore's lack of police officers crisis that, amazingly, completely ignored the the Freddie Gray Riots, and how Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake sided with the rioters and applauded when  Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby charged six officers with homicide.  All of whom were acquitted.

This sample of comments  take up that slack.

I used to care about the plight of the cities.
After 8 years of being called the most horrid things by the Dem party, watching as inner city pulls people from cars, beats them bloody, chases white kids down and beats them, ect, ect than they call ME racist and n-zi?
You know what? TS.
You made your bed, sleep in it.

time to stop caring about crime ridden leftwing run cities who don’t care about anything except how much Federal welfare money they can get.

There are more than 100 fewer Baltimore City PD officers than last year, before the Mayor said that rioters needed room to destroy? Imagine that! Hmm.

Seriously. Who wants to work in Mogadishu, Maryland? Any city run by liberal affirmative action leadership is doomed to become a primitive war zone.

I spent 21 years policing in a city of 350,000 so I know a bit about the topic, but I cannot figure out why any thinking o\person would desire to be a cop in a hell-hole where the mayor and prosecutor are out and out racists who hate cops.

When someone arrests and charges that mayor and prosecutor for their racist misconduct you will find it much easier to recruit officers. But until those two snags are behind bars it will be hard to do.

Hard to believe, no one wants to be a cop in the rat hole known as Baltimore City. Maybe it’s the criminals outnumber the cops and the City States Attorney is an incompetent racist.

It’s amazing to me that the article does not mention at all about the riots and how Baltimore cops were/are being targeted by both the government and the criminals! Almost like it doesn’t exist. Are you kidding me? That is why the problem will not be solved. Until the liberal city government and liberal/biased media get their heads out of the sand, and acknowledge the real problem, their plans are destined to fail.

?, its the city managers who created this environment of fear to be a cop? The cops should all find other jobs where people appreciate them and leave Baltimore to the hell hole that it is.

This is what happens when your city chastises police at every turn and sides with BLM over the police. If you want to back the Thugs then you will put them in charge. Good Luck Baltimore, I no longer visit your city because of how bad things are. We used to frequent inner harbor and Camden yards but never again.

Considering the current political structure, no sane person would apply for a job with the Baltimore Police Dept.

I hope all the cops leave. let the Black Looters Matter animals have the city and get the immigrates to build a wall around it. Come back in five years after the vultures have picked all the bones clean and bulldoze everything over.

And on, and on, and on .....

Chicago Review of Books Editor Says ....

In October 2015, the Breitbart News Network placed Yiannopoulos in charge of its new "Breitbart Tech" section, which he said will "be free speech central—and we'll talk about stuff people really care about: Freedom, free speech, love, sex, death, money and porn." The site has six full-time staff, including an esports specialist.

Adam Morgan, the Editor in Chief of the Chicago Review of Books, published an article today in The Guardian explaining why the Chicago Review of Books chose to boycott Simon & Schuster, the company publishing MILO’s new book, DANGEROUS.

The title of the Guardian article reads, “Publishing Milo Yiannopoulos’ book is wrong. My magazine is fighting back.” However the URL of the article and the Facebook sharing preview reveal the title, “Simon & Schuster is rewarding alt-right hate speech. We cannot stay silent.”

But on Saturday, when the biographer of a lesbian artist criticised Simon & Schuster, Yiannopoulos responded: ‘There is only one place for lesbians: porn.’”
This may be a simple error but it is also likely that the title calling MILO’s book “alt-right hate speech” was the original tile of the article. The Guardian may have realised their error in calling MILO “alt-right”, a political movement which MILO has repeatedly stated he is not part of, despite the media’s various attempts to paint him as a “leader” of the movement, and changed the article title.

Morgan’s article goes on to make a number of claims such as, “2016 taught us that ridiculing women, people of colour, Muslims and members of the LGBTQ community can make someone immensely popular,” and that MILO is, “not a conservative intellectual leader with a political agenda. He’s a clickbait grifter who has made a name for himself spewing hate speech.” [FULL]

Barack Hussein Obama and Indonesia: there's no place like home

[...] One of the reasons a lot of Americans find Obama oddly foreign is that he had an oddly foreign childhood: his formative years were spent in Indonesia. His half-sister, Maya Soetoro Ng, was born there. The rest of Obama's childhood was spent in Honolulu, a Pacific Ocean capital soaked in East Asian culture.

What's this got to do with Britain, or indeed with Europe? Plenty. Obama is the first US president who was raised without cultural or emotional or intellectual ties to either Britain or Europe. The British and the Europeans have been so enchanted with  'America's first black president' that they haven't been able to see what he really is: America's first Third World president.


What the Obama administration has near-wiped from the president's personal history is that his only childhood links with America were as a schoolboy in a fashionable private school in Asia-dominated Hawaii, where he was raised by his white, bank executive grandmother.

Chicago is not Obama's homeland. It never was his formative influence. The president's world view is more aligned with that of Indonesia.

You can be sure the gift Obama gives the President of Indonesia will be something more than the dvd box-set of old Hollywood movies he gave to Gordon Brown. The US president's manner on the trip to Indonesia will be more the manner he showed to the King of Saudi Arabia last year. The king received a deep bow, something never done by any US president before. Obama also kow-towed to the Emperor of Japan and to the Chinese premier.


The president actually feels that the US Constitution, which grew out of Magna Carta and the 1689 Bill of Rights, is 'inadequate.' Indeed, Obama has stated that, because the US Constitution guarantees only 'negative rights' -- that is, establishes what the US Government may not do to individuals or to the sovereign states -- instead of giving people guarantees of food, shelter education and health care and the rest, it is 'inadequate.'


Obama has made it clear he despises both the US Constitution and the British tradition from which it springs.
