Trump is a ‘Blowhard,’ ‘I don’t like him’ and I voted for Hillary, George Bush says in new book




"America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms," their joint statement read, according to CNN. "As we pray for Charlottesville, we are reminded of the fundamental truths recorded by that city's most prominent citizen in the Declaration of Independence: we are all created equal and endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights," they said in a joint written statement on Wednesday. "We know these truths to be everlasting because we have seen the decency and greatness of our country."

Robert Mueller’s Office Will Serve First Indictment Monday, Source Confirms


From Kevin G Shinnick:

"I made a comment recently where I claimed that Republican administrations had been much more criminally corrupt over the last 50 plus years than the Democrats. I was challenged (dared actually) to prove it. So I did a bit of
research and when I say a bit I mean it didn't take long and there is no comparison.

When comparing criminal indictments of those serving in the executive branch of presidential administrations, it's so lopsided as to be ridiculous. Yet all I ever hear about is how supposedly "corrupt" the Democrats are. So why don't we break it down by president and the numbers?

Obama (D) – 8 yrs in office. Zero criminal indictments, zero convictions and zero prison sentences. So the next time somebody describes the Obama administration as "scandal free" they aren't speaking wishfully, they're simply telling the truth.

Bush, George W. (R) – 8 yrs in office. 16 criminal indictments. 16 convictions. 9 prison sentences.

Clinton (D) – 8 yrs in office. 2 criminal indictments. One conviction. One prison sentence. That's right nearly 8 yrs of investigations. Tens of millions spent and 30 yrs of claiming them the most corrupt ever
and there was exactly one person convicted of a crime.

Bush, George H. W. (R) – 4 yrs in office. One indictment. One conviction. One prison sentence.

Reagan (R) – 8 yrs in office. 26 criminal indictments. 16 convictions. 8 prison sentences.

Carter (D) – 4 yrs in office. One indictment. Zero convictions and zero prison sentences.

Ford (R) – 4 yrs in office. One indictment and one conviction. One prison sentence.

Nixon (R) – 6 yrs in office. 76 criminal indictments. 55 convictions. 15 prison sentences.

Johnson (D) – 5 yrs in office. Zero indictments. Zero convictions. Zero prison sentences.

So, let's see where that leaves us. In the last 53 years, Democrats have been in the Oval Office for 25 of those years, while Republicans held it for 28. In their 25 yrs in office Democrats had a total of three executive branch officials indicted with one conviction and one prison sentence. That's one whole executive branch official convicted
of a crime in two and a half decades of Democrat leadership.

In the 28 yrs that Republicans have held office over the last 53 yrs they have had a total of (a drum roll would be more than appropriate), 120 criminal indictments of executive branch officials. 89 criminal convictions and 34 prison sentences handed down. That's more prison sentences than years in office since 1968 for Republicans. If you want
to count articles of impeachment as indictments (they aren't really but we can count them as an action), both sides get one more. However, Clinton wasn't found guilty while Nixon resigned and was pardoned by
Ford (and a pardon carries with it a legal admission of guilt on the part of the pardoned). So those only serve to make Republicans look even worse.

With everything going on with Trump and his people right now, it's a safe bet Republicans are gonna be padding their numbers a bit real soon.

So let's just go over the numbers one more time, shall we? 120 indictments for Republicans. 89 convictions, and 34 prison sentences. Those aren't "feelings" or "alternate facts." Those are simply the stats by the numbers. Republicans are, and have been for my entire lifetime, the most criminally corrupt party to hold the office of the presidency.

So those are the actual numbers. Feel free to copy and paste!"

Nope. Not scary at all.


Accenture left a huge trove of highly sensitive data on exposed servers. 

 The servers, hosted on Amazon's S3 storage service, contained hundreds of gigabytes of data for the company's enterprise cloud offering, which the company claims provides support to the majority of the Fortune 100.

This is worth reading. Why Putin cares about the Magnitsky Act



Browder's testimony, which received relatively little coverage, is extraordinary with a senator calling it one of the Senate Judiciary Committee's "most important" hearings.

In it he describes a Russian system of government that operates in the shadows using corruption, blackmail, torture and murder - all led by Vladimir Putin.

Browder said: "Effectively the moment that you enter into their world, you become theirs."

Senators on hot mic: Trump is ‘crazy,’ ‘I’m worried’ - The Washington Post


Very interesting conversation between Republican and Democratic Senators on Trump. 

Finally, something they can agree on!

"Yes," Reed replies. "I think — I think he's crazy," apparently referring to the president. "I mean, I don't say that lightly and as a kind of a goofy guy."

"I'm worried," Collins replies.

"Oof," Reed continues. "You know, this thing — if we don't get a budget deal, we're going to be paralyzed."

"I know," Collins replies.

"[Department of Defense] is going to be paralyzed, everybody is going to be paralyzed," Reed says.

"I don't think he knows there is a [Budget Control Act] or anything," Collins says, referring to a 2011 law that defines the budget process.

"He was down at the Ford commissioning," Reed says, referring to President Trump's weekend event launching a new aircraft carrier, "saying, 'I want them to pass my budget.' Okay, so we give him $54 billion and then we take it away across the board which would cause chaos."

Nearly 150,000 attempts to hack SC voter registration system on Election Day: report



Hackers tried to infiltrate South Carolina's voter registration system nearly 150,000 times on Election Day 2016, according to a South Carolina State Election Commission report that was reported on by The Wall Street Journal.

South Carolina, which President Trump won easily during the election, did not find evidence that would suggest the attempted breaches were successful, the paper reported.

The publication said most of the hacking attempts in South Carolina likely came from automated computer bots.

The report comes as the federal probe into Russian election meddling and alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin continues.


Senate Intel asks 21 states to publicize election hacking


The Senate Intelligence Committee has asked election officials in 21 states to make public information about Russian efforts to hack their elections systems during the 2016 elections, the panel's top Democrat said Wednesday. 
The request was made in a letter sent last week "to all relevant state election officials" from Sens. Richard Burr(R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.), the panel's chairman and vice chairman, respectively, Warner revealed in his prepared remarks before a hearing on global election interference. 
"I do not see how Americans are made safer when they do not know which state elections systems Russia tried to hack," Warner said.
