Did US President Donald Trump commit treason in Helsinki when he met Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin? Should he be impeached?
That is what his opponents claim. Former president Barack Obama’s CIA director John Brennan accused Trump of treason outright.
Brennan tweeted, “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki [with Putin] rises to and exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous.”
Fellow senior Obama administration officials, including former FBI director James Comey, former defense secretary Ashton Carter, and former deputy attorney general Sally Yates parroted Brennan’s accusation.
Peter Strzok’s testimony about the email server scandal involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton raised headlines because of his defiant, disrespectful, and unapologetic attitude about the bias revealed in his text messages that permeated his work at the FBI.
Then, there was the verbal combat between him and Republican members of the two committees holding the joint hearing, and between the Republicans and Democratic members who were running interference for Strzok and acting as his defense counsel.
Passwords are the keys to your entire digital life. They protect everything from your bank account and credit cards, to your personal and work emails, to your social profiles, and everything in between.
In other words, your passwords are highly valuable and should be treated as such. You need to protect them like you do your most valuable physical assets. Because just like criminals in the physical world try to steal money, jewelry, cars, and other valuables, cybercriminals try to steal your passwords and exploit your precious data.
Radio giant cites Clapper’s admission of culpability –
Now we know. It was President Obama who sparked the whole mess. The Russia collusion claims, the spying on the Trump campaign, the special counsel, the focus on the Trump campaign’s connection to Russia rather than Hillary Clinton’s.
That’s according to talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh, who Thursday cited former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper claim that Obama ordered the crucial intelligence assessment.
School districts across Texas are in the process of setting budgets for the next school year. Many districts are also looking to raise property taxes to pay for budgeted spending increases — but they need voter approval.
Several school boards in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex are asking for increases in their districts’ maintenance and operations (M&O) tax rate for 2018. Any proposed M&O tax rate above $1.04 per $100 of assessed property value triggers a Tax Ratification Election (TRE).
This year appeared to be a dream come true for the group “Fight for $15,” as the 85th Texas Legislature heard nine bills that would have raised the state’s legal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. The increases ranged from to $10.10 per hour by the year 2022 to $15 per hour this year.
In the last two weeks of June, the United Nations held another review conference on its efforts to counter what it considers illicit dealing in small arms. The U.S. played the game well. But unfortunately, you can’t beat a cheater.
In theory, this U.N. program might be a modestly useful way to promote cooperation against the illicit international trade in small arms.
In practice, as even the world body has agreed, it does nothing very useful, mostly because most nations at the U.N. are too incompetent, or too ill-willed, to follow through on their commitments.
So you have worked out a method of carrying your defensive handgun that conceals well for you and allows you to make a quick-draw response should trouble raise its angry head. My guess would be that, for most of you, this involves wearing the handgun somewhere near your waistline. Hip holster, inside the waistband, pocket holster—the method doesn’t really matter as long as it works for you. But now I am going to throw a monkey wrench into the whole defensive equation.

Rob Bluey: What prompted your interest in the issue of climate change? There’s a great photo of you in the book next to a wanted poster. How did you become such a villain to the left?
Marc Morano: I always said I was a Republican, except when it came to environmental issues. I remember not liking James Watt, the former interior secretary. I remember not liking President Ronald Reagan’s environmental policies. I always wanted to be a forest ranger as a kid growing up. I got heavily involved emotionally in watching all the documentaries about the Amazon rainforest back in the 1980s and 1990s.
We’ve spoken with several conservative legislators the last couple of days. We are incensed that NONE of the independent gun rights groups were invited to the Abbott table and that our conservative legislators were shut out of the conversation too. When gun control advocates leave the Governor’s meeting high-fiving each other, you know there’s a reason for concern.
