South Carolina On a Sunday morning appearance on “Fox & Friends,” conservative columnist Ann Coulter explained why Romney fell short in the South Carolina GOP presidential primary, blaming the priorities of South Carolina voters for Gingrich’s success. “Apparently, South Carolinians would rather have the emotional satisfaction of a snotty remark toward the president than to beat Obama in the fall,” Coulter, the author of “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America,” said. “We saw it in the debates when Gingrich would say things that didn’t really make sense. That is what you usually associate with Democrats, which I described in my last book, ‘Demonic,’ how mobs behave.” WikiLeaks soldier 'forced to strip naked' North America correspondent Craig McMurtrie Updated Sat 5 Mar 2011, 1:41am AEDT Supporters of an American army analyst accused of leaking hundreds of thousands of classified US cables say new charges levelled against him may be designed to force a confession or to get him to implicate others. US military prosecutors have added 22 extra charges including a count of aiding the enemy, which is punishable by death.

CREEPS ON A MISSION: Michael Horowitz is Really Investigating the Investigators Since at least July 2016, the upper echelon of the FBI and the Department of Justice began a stealth operation—with the complicity if not instigation of President Obama—to taint and destroy Candidate Trump with a concocted “Russia collusion” narrative. Michael Horowitz, the Inspector General of the Department of Justice, has been running a little-watched parallel investigation that is already producing results—when he is not manipulated or overborn by Robert Mueller. His name is not familiar to most Americans, but Mr. Horowitz has played an important role since President Obama named him Inspector General (IG) for the Department of Justice in 2012. Congress mandated the position of IG for every major federal agency.

'Common Sense Coalition' sets centrist Senate tone Senators in the 25-member Common Sense Coalition on Monday said their work in developing a deal to help end the government shutdown shows the road to getting big-ticket items passed in the future needs to run through the middle of both parties, rather than the extremes. Though senators in the bipartisan group cautioned that the final deal to fund the government through Feb. 8 was ultimately brokered by their respective leaders, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, the coalition’s input was critical in helping break the stalemate. Mr.
Breitbart News ist eine rechtsextreme amerikanische News- und Meinungs-Website, die 2007 durch den konservativen Kommentator Andrew Breitbart gegründet wurde. Sie publiziert zahlreiche Lügen und Verschwörungstheorien, sowie absichtlich irreführende Stories. (Quelle Wikipedia) Dabei wird nicht immer unbedingt, wie es journalistischen Prinzipien entsprechen sollte, zwischen Fakten und Meinungen (“alternative facts”) unterschieden, wenn es gerade opportun erscheint. Der frühere Vorsitzende und Chefradakteur Steve Bannon hat die Website als die Plattform der “Alt-Right”-Bewegung (Alternative Right) bezeichnet. 2016 unterstützte Breitbart News den Wahlkampf von Donald Trump. Mit dessen Einzug ins Weiße Haus wurde Steve Bannon zum Chef-Strategen des Präsidenten ernannt – was er bis zum 18. August 2017 blieb. Seither widmet er sich wieder Breitbart. by iiciis Sep 8
