POWER IN #'s! Please take the time to call your Senators and Rep. March if you can!!

I know...I know... I have a notebook compiling all the times I've called and on what issue(s).

This is one of the few things we can do other than donate to Democratic campaigns and waiting for the 2018 campaign season.

P.S. also called asshole paul ryan and tried to call mcconnell

Does anyone know if Anthony Weiner has ever been indicted or cleared for sexting with a 15 yr old

girl? I haven't. If not, why not? I would think this would not be a labor intensive investigation, the chats/images would be fairly easy to recover, especially on her computer.

Was just reading this article, The Problems With the FBI’s Email Investigation Went Well Beyond Comey, and realized I've never heard what happened to Weiner.
(Note: this article was a collaboration between ProPublica and The New Yorker)

"The Daily Mail story raised the possibility of serious criminal charges for Weiner. If he had encouraged an underage female to take explicit photos or video of herself, he could be charged with producing child pornography, a felony that carries a minimum prison term of fifteen years. F.B.I. agents in New York immediately began investigating."

Also, interesting back story:
"Three years earlier, Leathers had earned notoriety as Anthony Weiner’s most famous sexting partner. Leathers, then a twenty-three-year-old college student, had come forward, at first anonymously, with details about her online relationship with the disgraced former congressman, who had gone by the screen name Carlos Danger. Leathers’s story inspired countless tabloid headlines and ended Weiner’s political comeback as a candidate for mayor of New York City. Leathers quickly cashed in, selling her story to tabloid media, letting “Inside Edition” record her cosmetic-surgery makeover, starring in porn films, and charging for phone sex and Webcam services.

The messages Leathers received in 2016 were from someone who identified herself as a fifteen-year-old in North Carolina. The sender said she had been sexting with Weiner, but Leathers was skeptical. “I just thought it was a crazy person,” she told me.
Leathers changed her mind after the girl sent screen shots from months of exchanges with the former congressman. The teen-ager wanted to go public, but Leathers urged her to call the police instead. “I don’t claim to be a morality queen,” Leathers said. “I don’t care if he was sexting another adult. But, if it’s a child, it’s another story. I felt a little protective of her.”
After it became clear that the teen-ager was determined to tell her story, Leathers said she shifted to “damage control.”

“How can I at least make you some money?” she said she asked the teen-ager. “I basically said, ‘The only way you should do this is if they pay you.’ Certain outlets will pay you to talk, and I had made deals with a lot of them.” Leathers’s agent alerted dailymail.com, the online version of a British tabloid with which she’d previously done business. Both Leathers and the girl received a sizable fee; the teen’s father, an attorney, helped negotiate her payment."



Lots more interesting info in this article.

Who's lying...Huma Abedin or Comey?!

"Source: Huma Abedin "surprised" about emails on Anthony Weiner's computer"

"...CBS News has learned that Huma Abedin, a top Clinton aide and longtime confidant, says she has no knowledge of any of her emails being on the electronic device belonging to her estranged husband, disgraced ex-congressman Anthony Weiner. 
A source familiar with the investigation told CBS News that the computer where FBI investigators found the latest trove of emails belonged to Weiner, not Abedin. The two separated earlier this year, following news of Weiner’s continued sexting practices." 

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/source-huma-abedin-had-no-knowledge-of-emails-on-anthony-weiners-computer/


So, according to Comey today, Abedin sent thousands of Clinton emails to her estranged husband's laptop so she could "print them out".

She didn't have a printer available at campaign headquarters nor her own personal laptop?!!? Really?

North Korea (DPRK): "They therefore plan to win by striking quickly, by surprise, while South

Korea (ROK) are still mobilizing, US reinforcements are not yet in theatre,..."

Snipped:

"DPRK planners recognize their inferiority in technology and, after ROK mobilization, even in numbers. They understand that ROK/US forces will have air superiority initially, and (unless China intervenes) air supremacy within days. They therefore plan to win by striking quickly, by surprise, while ROK forces are still mobilizing, US reinforcements are not yet in theatre, and while our airpower is largely committed to overcoming the DPRK integrated air defense system and targeting WMD storage sites, launchers, and command, control, and communications (C3) networks."

http://www.realcleardefense.com/articles/2017/04/25/thunder_run_to_seoul_assessing_north_koreas_war_plan_111241.html

This article is comprehensive and informative, IMO.


In my research on North Korea, I am learning just how little we know about North Korea. It is, after all, the Hermit country.


Another interesting viewpoint:

"Why North Korea Is a Black Hole for U.S. Intelligence"

Connect the dots! Did you wonder why Woolsey took so long to reveal the Flynn Turkish Kidnap plot?

Could this be why?

First read this story published by Bloomberg on what looks like to be a huge money laundering operation by Trump protégé:

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2016-11-13/obscure-casino-run-by-a-trump-protege-is-raising-big-questions

Now MUST READ this:

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-03-30/fbi-agents-visit-office-of-saipan-casino-run-by-trump-protege

Finally...remember Steele dossier which stated his source said Trump and campaign were more worried about China than Russia ties?!?

Trump Tries Outreach to Moderate Democrats

"With health care stymied by GOP divides, the White House has quietly begun reaching across the aisle."

https://www.nationaljournal.com/s/649860?unlock=UC49MYE85UIOOAHT

snipped:
Rep. Henry Cuel­lar said White House staff reached out Monday to him and some in­di­vidu­al mem­bers of the Blue Dog Co­ali­tion and the New Demo­crat Co­ali­tion, two groups filled with mod­er­ate and con­ser­vat­ive Demo­crats, many of whom rep­res­ent swing dis­tricts and have repu­ta­tions for work­ing across the aisle.

They are not leakers, they are Whistleblowers

and I thank them for their patriotism.

Select committees, nonpartisan commissions, etc. will not be able to investigate the Trump/Putin conspiracy in a timely manner, assuming they would be thorough, transparent, (I'm skeptical...).

I believe these Whistleblowers are our biggest hope in eradicating the trump administration quickly, before more damage is done to our country.

I have called every Repub on the Senate Intelligence Committee 3 times since the inauguration to inform them that we are watching and to stop calling evidence "classified" based on political reasons only. They and the House committee have pretty much deep sixed their "investigations" since they were announced (repug majority duh).

I ask that we all use our social media to distinguish between whistleblowers vs. leakers. They are putting a lot on the line. I can only imagine the witchhunt to ferret them out is brutal.

"What's Lily White, Filthy Rich, and Has 14 Penises?"

Trump's Cabinet picks, by the numbers

Dave Gilson and Einat Gilboa
Mar/Apr 2017 Issue
Mother Jones

(Interesting data) i.e. total net worth of asshole's cabinet picks is $6.8 billion. This is LESS than the wealth of 126 million Americans combined.
