Get ready for Winter Storm Quinn! East coast will get up to TWO FEET of snow and rain with 50mph gusts of wind | 06 March 2018 | Don't put away your winter coats just yet.

Ex-Trump aide on 'bus to crazy town' with plans to defy Mueller, Colbert says | 06 March 2018 | Sam Nunberg, a former adviser to President Donald Trump, is driving a "bus to crazy town" if he thinks it's a good idea to defy U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's subpoena, Stephen Colbert said Monday night. "You know Mueller can arrest you, right? That's like saying 'Eat me' to Hannibal Lecter. Doesn't work out well..." Colbert, host of "The Late Show," said in his monologue Monday. Colbert made the comments just hours after Nunberg gave multiple interviews about his plans to defy Mueller's subpoena to appear before the grand jury this week as a part of the ongoing Russia investigation.

In reversal, former Trump aide says he'll probably cooperate | 06 March 2018 | A former Trump campaign aide spent much of the day promising to defy a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller, even throwing down the challenge to "arrest me," then backed off his defiance by saying he would probably cooperate in the end. In an interview Monday night with The Associated Press, Sam Nunberg said he was angry over Mueller's request to have him appear in front of a grand jury and turn over thousands of emails and other communications with other ex-officials...But he predicted that, in the end, he'd find a way to comply. It was a reversal from his tone throughout the day, when he lashed out at Trump and his campaign and threatened to defy Mueller in a series of interviews.

NRA sees a huge surge in membership interest after drawing noisy backlash over Parkland massacre | 04 March 2018 | The NRA has seen a huge surge in membership interest in recent weeks, after drawing noisy backlash over the shooting in Parkland, Florida. Google searches for 'NRA membership' have risen roughly 4,900 per cent since the week before the February 14 shooting, with new members flocking to support the gun owners' rights group. Though high-profile mass shootings often spur an increase in gun sales over fear of a crackdown, the Parkland shooting was different in the focus of vitriol that was directed at the NRA.

Australian diplomat whose tip prompted FBI's Russia-probe has tie to Clintons | 05 March 2018 | The Australian diplomat whose tip in 2016 prompted the Russia-Trump investigation previously arranged one of the largest foreign donations to Bill and Hillary Clinton's charitable efforts, documents show. Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer's role in securing $25 million in aid from his country to help the Clinton Foundation 'fight AIDS' is chronicled in decade-old government memos archived on the Australian foreign ministry’s website...Downer, now Australia'’s ambassador to London, provided the account of a conversation with Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos at a London bar in 2016 that became the official reason the FBI opened the Russia counterintelligence probe. But lawmakers say the FBI didn't tell Congress about Downer’s prior connection to the Clinton Foundation.

"Here we are, like the dummies of the world, because we had bad politicians running our country for a long time," Trump said, adding that the Iraq invasion was "the single worst decision ever made," amounting to "throwing a big fat brick into a hornet's nest."

YouTube Cracks Down on Free Speech as 'Conspiracy' Theories Spread | 03 March 2018 | YouTube this week cracked down on the videos of some prominent far-right actors and conspiracy theorists, continuing an effort that has become more visible since the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., last month caused a torrent of misinformation to be featured prominently on the site...The top video on the list for some time falsely claimed that a student at the school, David Hogg, was a crisis actor. Since then, many prominent right-wing personalities have reported that YouTube has issued them strikes, which the site uses to enforce its community totalitarian guidelines. If a channel receives three strikes within three months, YouTube terminates it...YouTube star Carl Benjamin, known by his username Sargon of Akkad, who criticizes feminism and identity politics. Mr. Benjamin posted a screenshot on Facebook on Thursday that said he had been locked out of his Google account because "it looked like it was being used in a way that violated Google’s policies."

'US eyes encircling Russia with 400 anti-ballistic missiles' - Russian deputy defense minister | 03 March 2018 | While the West blames Moscow for a new arms race, the US is creeping to Russia's borders.

Anti-missile defense sites have been already seat up on US soil in California and Alaska," Alexander Fomin, Russia's deputy defense minister, said on Friday in an interview with the Russia 24 TV channel.

Senator seeks answers on why FBI waited weeks to act on Weiner laptop in Clinton case

Senator seeks answers on why FBI waited weeks to act on Weiner laptop in Clinton case | 02 March 2018 | A Republican senator is pressing for answers on why the FBI waited weeks to act after the 2016 discovery of thousands of emails on ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner's laptop that potentially were relevant to the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., fired off a letter Thursday to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein asking about the timeline, citing texts between two key FBI investigators. The messages, first reported by The Wall Street Journal in late January, indicate that top bureau officials were aware of the discovery of thousands of emails from Weiner well before the FBI sought a search warrant in late October, and effectively revived the Clinton probe right before the election.

New arms race started by US pulling out of missile treaty - Putin

New arms race started by US pulling out of missile treaty - Putin | 02 March 2018 | Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied accusations he revived an arms race by unveiling Russia's new nuclear deterrent.

In an interview with NBC on Thursday, the Russian leader brushed off claims in the Western media that by introducing new nuclear-powered missiles, including the hypersonic Sarmat, he has signaled a new arms race. The alarmist rhetoric that fills Western news outlets is just another form of propaganda, Putin said...Putin blamed Washington's 2002 withdrawal from the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty (ABM Treaty) for escalating the confrontation.

The letter, from the DOJ Office of the Pardon Attorney, comes less than a year after the former sailor, Kristian Saucier, received a letter rejecting his pardon request on the grounds that it did not meet several criteria, including waiting five years. The letter last year came as a disappointment to Saucier, who served one year in jail, and his supporters, given that President Donald Trump -- during his campaign and after he took office -- had drawn attention to the handling of his case, describing it as overzealous and politically motivated.

Trump Stuns Lawmakers With Seeming Embrace of Gun Control

Trump Stuns Lawmakers With Seeming Embrace of Gun Control | 28 Feb 2018 | President Trump stunned Republicans on live television Wednesday by embracing gun control and urging a group of lawmakers at the White House to resurrect gun safety legislation that has been opposed for years by the powerful National Rifle Association and the vast majority of his party...He called for comprehensive gun control legislation that would expand background checks to weapons purchased at gun shows and on the internet, keep guns from mentally ill people, secure schools and restrict gun sales for some young adults.

Hope Hicks to Leave Post as White House Communications Director | 28 Feb 2018 | Hope Hicks, President Trump's communications director and one of his longest-serving advisers, said Wednesday that she planned to leave the White House in the next few weeks. Ms. Hicks, 29, a former model who joined Mr. Trump's 2016 presidential campaign without any experience in politics, became known as one of the few aides who understood Mr. Trump's personality and style and could challenge the president to change his views. Her title belied the extent of her power within the West Wing -- after John F. Kelly was appointed White House chief of staff, she had more access to the Oval Office than almost any other staff member.
