FBI used this band's lyrics as code for the Russia investigation

It seems both President Trump and the FBI are fans of The Rolling Stones, using a song lyric as code for the Russia investigation. Nathan Rousseau Smith has the story.         It seems both President Trump and the FBI are fans of The Rolling Stones, using a song lyric as code for the Russia investigation.

Is Trump About To Fire Mueller?? Look At The Evidence!

OK, we're not going to keep you in suspense. The answer to bet on is OF COURSE Donald Trump is going to fire Robert Mueller. The only questions are When? and What are we going to do about it? Many have been calling for months for the protection of the Special Prosecutor's investigation, which has already yielded [...] OK, we're not going to keep you in suspense. The answer to bet on is OF COURSE Donald Trump is going to fire Robert Mueller. The only questions are When? and What are we going to do about it? Many have been calling for months for the protection of the Special Prosecutor's investigation, which has already yielded multiple guilty pleas and apparently uncovered Russian agents who compromised the 2016 election. Related: EXCLUSIVE! Donald Trump Jr.'s Secret Affair With Aubrey O'Day Revealed! Congress has passed no legislation, with some Republicans saying essentially there's no need to buy an umbrella because it's not raining yet. After this weekend's actions and tweetstorm by the President, we think the evidence is pretty clear. Ch-ch-check it out (below)! 1.) Trump actively encouraged the quick firing of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe before his official retirement date -- keeping him from receiving his pension. And Jeff Sessions went through with it, despite McCabe being a witness in the Mueller probe and Sessions supposedly being recused from anything related to the investigation. Sessions faced no repercussions, so now he's obviously free to fire Mueller when Trump tells him to. Related: Why Trump's Next Picks For Secretary Of State & CIA Director Should Scare You 2.) Trump went on a Twitter rant over the weekend, using Mueller's name for the first time, calling fired FBI leaders James Comey and McCabe liars and saying outright the probe should end. As the House Intelligence Committee has concluded, there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump Campaign. As many are now finding out, however, there was tremendous leaking, lying and corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, Justice & State. #DrainTheSwamp — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 17, 2018 Trump's toadie Devin Nunes ended the House Intelligence Committee's Russia probe without interviewing all witnesses or cooperating with any of the Democrats on the committee in drafting its report. Trump is now using that to discredit the entire investigation. The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime. It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2018 The investigation actually began based on information from many sources, including in his own team. The FBI had found Carter Page was approached by Russian agents years before Trump's campaign. And that "Fake Dossier" was first paid for by Republicans. It was just garden variety opposition research that turned scandalous because TRUMP IS CONNECTED TO RUSSIAN CRIMINALS. (And also possibly watersports.) Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans? Another Dem recently added...does anyone think this is fair? And yet, there is NO COLLUSION! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2018 Zero Republicans? Mueller is a Republican. Also, all his bosses are Republicans. James Comey is a Republican. Andrew McCabe is a Republican. The FBI is FILLED with Republicans. Separate from that though... the notion that Democrats can't serve their country as law enforcement agents is despicable, tyrannical garbage. What he really means is, if anyone ever disagrees with him or accuses him of crimes, even with evidence, they're biased. BULLSHIT. A total WITCH HUNT with massive conflicts of interest! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 19, 2018 This is totally what innocent people say... Team Trump keeps trying to have it both ways, saying Trump is just kidding or merely expressing feelings on his Twitter account when they want the American people to look away -- but also referring the press to it for his official statements. Also, Trump does make announcements on it, like when he fired Rex Tillerson. So as unhinged as it is, this is Trump's official word. Related: Trump Got PISSED After Sanders Accidentally Told The Wrong Lies About Stormy Daniels 3.) Even one of Trump's lawyers, John Dowd, called for the end of the Mueller probe this weekend. He declared to CNN in a statement: "I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe's boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt dossier." That's the President's personal lawyer saying that. 4.) What happened Monday morning was even more concrete. Trump hired yet another lawyer Joseph diGenova, who has previously been all over Fox News claiming the FBI and DOJ are trying to frame Trump. Back in late 2016 and early 2017, he said the same about Comey -- before Trump fired him. diGenova is being hired to spread the word. They're all getting the message out to the American people: it's OK to fire Mueller because the probe is bogus. This is FOR SURE about to happen. And it's apparently going to happen soon. All this nonsense seemed to ramp up right after Mueller's team sent Trump's lawyers a list of questions they would ask him in the interview he said he wanted to do. So once again, the question is WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?? [Image via Ron Sachs/Alex Edelman//CNP/Media Punch.].....»»

Oh Shoot

Yesterday a nineteen-year-old named Nikolas Cruz stormed into his former high school in Parkland, Florida, pulled the fire alarm, and went to town on a horde of students filing into the halls with an AR-15 rifle. One look at his face will tell you that he was either going to make a big splash on […] The post Oh Shoot appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Yesterday a nineteen-year-old named Nikolas Cruz stormed into his former high school in Parkland, Florida, pulled the fire alarm, and went to town on a horde of students filing into the halls with an AR-15 rifle. One look at his face will tell you that he was either going to make a big splash on InbredEnthuasist.com or that he was going to shoot a building full of people, and unfortunately it’s the latter that he will go down in history for. If I had to choose ten people out of a photo lineup who shouldn’t own a gun Cruz would be one of them, but as a Chicagoan who lives next to the Florida of the Midwest, Indiana, context clues (plus Florida gun laws) tell me you can get a firearm by mailing in three Cinnamon Toast Crunch box tops there, and I doubt much could have been done to stop him from procuring a rifle. But this is true for most controlled things in garbage states. Hell over lunch I might pick up some meth from a CVS in Indiana to get through the afternoon. But for me this tragedy goes beyond guns and how trashy Florida is, and while the nerve-deadening coverage of shootings over the past decade has left me, frankly, less impassioned about the seventeen victims than if my two houseplants died, I care enough about the shooting to call out the FBI as a bunch of morons. This past September the FBI investigated a YouTube commenter named Nikolas Cruz who stated: “I’m going to be a professional school shooter.” The vlogger (ugh) who reported the comment to the FBI stated: They [the FBI] came to my office the next morning and asked me if I knew anything about the person. I didn’t. They took a copy of the screenshot and that was the last I heard from them. The FBI realized they were going to have to do too much investigating, and investigating is super hard, so they dropped the case. I mean wow, how do you crack that code.”I’m going to be a professional school shooter.” Indecipherable. Cruz also posted numerous pictures of himself with guns on since-deleted social media accounts. Always the people you least suspect.   Photo Credit: Instagram   This type of online sentiment is surely more widespread than we would like to believe, and I can only imagine the thousands of troubling comments posted each day on disturbing niche sites out there. Kimkardashianwest.com alone. Still, the FBI requested a budget of $8.77 billion dollars for 2018, and while investigating crazy people online does seem like super hard, it also seems super feasible with over $8 billion dollars. With 323 million people living in the United States, this 2018 budget equals about $27 per citizen. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, about one in six Americans suffer from mental illness, so if we want to focus exclusively on crazy people for the sake of my A Beautiful Mind equation, that would equal about $163 per potentially high-risk individual. Even taking into account the countless other responsibilities that fall under the FBI’s jurisdiction, this is surely enough of a budget to fully investigate someone as much of a textbook shooter as a disenfranchised, expelled, white teenager with the same name as a YouTube user you commented: “I’m going to be a professional school shooter.” Surely. In addressing the comment during a press conference this morning, special agent Robert Lasky admitted that the people we pay money to employ at the FBI couldn’t do their jobs: No other information was included in the comment, which would indicate a time, location, or true identity of the person who made the comment. The FBI conducted database reviews, checks, but was unable to further identify the person who made the comment. Consider the person identified.   #NEW: Longer video of suspect arrested @wsvn pic.twitter.com/2ZHmCd69rV — Franklin White (@FranklinWSVN) February 14, 2018 Photo Credit: Broward County Sheriff’s Office The post Oh Shoot appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»

Rudy Giuliani Joins Donald Trump"s Legal Team To "Negotiate An End" To The Russia Investigation!

In case you were worried Donald Trump's legal team wasn't desperate enough, the president has somehow convinced Rudy Giuliani to hop aboard and try to save him from Robert Mueller's investigation!

The former New York mayor told The Washington Post on Thursday that he hopes to "negotiate an end" to the investigation into Russian interference in the election "for the good of the country." Giuliani added he's been speaking with PEETUS for weeks about joining the group of legal advisers, which has been struggling to recruit new members following the raid of Michael Cohen's records and all that Stormy Daniels drama. Related: Trump Compares Immigrants To "Breeding" Rodents! The former presidential candidate told CNN his role will be "limited," adding that his focus will be on giving the Russia collusion probe the "little push" it needs to come to a conclusion. He will work alongside Trump's current attorneys, Jay Sekulow and Ty Cobb, whom he had nothing but praise for. Giuliani also spoke highly of Mueller, noting that they worked together in the Justice Department as well as when Mueller was FBI director and Giuliani was NY's mayor. The 73-year-old said he's going to get a list from Mueller of what is needed to "comply" with the rest of the investigation as soon as he can -- which, depending on what is asked for, can take as quickly as "a couple of weeks." As for why Giuliani took on this role, sources close to the president told the New York Times that Trump might be replacing attorney general Jeff Sessions with Giuliani in the coming months. Video: Stephen Colbert Grills Comey About "The Pee Pee Tape" Or maybe he just really fits the bill of a crooked Trump lawyer? Certified tea spiller James Comey told Rachel Maddow on Thursday night that he launched an investigation into possible leaks from the FBI to Giuliani's office after the former mayor appeared to predict Hillary Clinton's email investigation re-launching in October 2016. Comey doesn't know the result of the Giuliani investigation, he added, because he was fired before it was finished. We may not know what exactly inspired Giuliani to hop aboard Trump's sinking legal ship, but we're sure it wasn't just the honor of serving the president.

Russia has been barred from the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea in response to the widespread doping among the country's athletes. The International Olympic Committee made the ruling on Tuesday, announcing Russian government officials are forbidden to attend next year's global sporting event. Not only that, its flag will not be displayed during the opening ceremony and its anthem will not be played. Ouch! Related: Olympic Drug Tests Show U.S. Athletes Used Banned Substances White some athletes from Russia can petition for eligibility to compete, they will only be able to do so as individuals. Yes, even if these athletes take home the gold, official record books will show that Russia won ZERO medals. The IOC issued the punishment a year after completing an investigation that exposed a state-sponsored doping program operated by the country. To match the unprecedented use of banned substances, the committee hit Russia with penalties so severe, they were unprecedented in Olympics history. The punishment, which will likely face a legal appeal from Russia's Olympic Committee, is similar to what the World Anti-Doping Agency had lobbied for leading up to the 2016 Summer Games -- which allowed Russia to participate in restricted numbers.

In a recent statement, the law enforcement agency confirmed that they received a tip in January from a person close to gunman Nikolas Cruz. The warning sent to the agency expressed a concern that the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School alum might commit a school shooting. Related: Kim Zolciak Purchases Bulletproof Backpacks For Her Children Sadly, this warning never made it to the Miami field office to be investigated. FBI Director Christopher Wray noted: "I am committed to getting to the bottom of what happened in this particular matter, as well as reviewing our processes for responding to information that we receive from the public." The informant also informed the FBI that Cruz owned guns, expressed a desire to kill people, displayed erratic behavior, and shared disturbing content on social media. The FBI has acknowledged their mistake in handling the tip, as the statement continued: "We have determined that these protocols were not followed for the information received by the PAL on January 5. The information was not provided to the Miami field office, and no further investigation was conducted at that time." So awful. Understandably, the federal agency feels regret for the way this situation was handled. Wray himself apologized, as he added: "It's up to all Americans to be vigilant, and when members of the public contact us with concerns, we must act properly and quickly. We have spoken with victims and families, and deeply regret the additional pain this causes all those affected by this horrific tragedy. All of the men and women of the FBI are dedicated to keeping the American people safe, and are relentlessly committed to improving all that we do and how we do it." If only this tip was taken seriously, 17 people's lives could've been saved. We're sure the deceased's loved ones are eager for answers regarding this major mess up. Stay tuned for any updates on this sad story. [Image via NBC/Today/YouTube.].....»»

Donald Trump Lackeys Paul Manafort & Rick Gates Indicted On 12 Counts — Including Conspiracy Against The U.S.

Holy crap. Donald Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and his longtime business associate, Rick Gates, were both told to surrender to law enforcement on Monday morning. This legal update was brought about by the investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller over the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russia during the presidential election. Video: Sarah Huckabee [...] Holy crap. Donald Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and his longtime business associate, Rick Gates, were both told to surrender to law enforcement on Monday morning. This legal update was brought about by the investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller over the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russia during the presidential election. Video: Sarah Huckabee Sanders Is Asked About The Trump Sexual Harassment Claims According to the special counsel's office, the two Trump lackeys have been charged with 12 counts -- including "conspiracy to launder money, conspiracy against the U.S., false and misleading statements surrounding the Foreign Agents Registration Act, false statements and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts." Despite President Trump's past insistence that his campaign did NOT collude with Russia, a White House source told NBC News: "The White House has been saying for weeks the special counsel is moving far more quickly and deliberatively than people have been reporting. The fact that the special counsel is actively performing its duties does not come as a surprise to the White House." Mr. Manafort has since turned himself over to the FBI as he was spotted, alongside his lawyer, at the agency's field office in Washington D.C. around 8:15 a.m. The American lobbyist, who served on the Trump campaign from April to August 2016, has been under investigation for some time as his past featured lobbying work for a Russian-backed Ukrainian political party. This business move also involved Paul's longtime protégé, Mr. Gates. While Rick is a lesser known participant in this controversy, he did fly with Paul to meet with associates for Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska. According to the unsealed document, "more than $75 million flowed through offshore accounts" and the indictment also referenced Manafort's "hidden overseas wealth to enjoy a lavish lifestyle in the United States." Gates and Manafort are the first people to be charged in the special investigation. This indictment isn't necessarily shocking as Mueller was expected to hit Manafort with charges after the FBI conducted a search of the 68-year-old's home in Alexandria, VA back in July. Be sure to ch-ch-check back for more updates as this story is developing. [Image via AP Images.].....»»

This February Kate Upton came forward with sexual assault allegations against Guess co-founder Paul Marciano – claiming that since their very first lingerie photoshoot together in 2010 Marciano has assaulted her and acted inappropriately towards her. To be quite frank if I knew I was going to be spending a day with a writhing barely-clothed Kate Upton I’d probably rub one out on the car ride over so as to be my utmost gentlemanly self during the shoot. Ben Stiller in There’s Something About Mary-style. But Marciano didn’t get this memo, and Upton didn’t get the memo that every model ever is sexually molested, so here we are. Sort of a miscommunication situation. Guess has placed Marciano on temporary leave, and is conducting an internal investigation into Upton’s claims. A gropy middle-aged exec molested a young model. How will they ever crack this code. Once Upton discovered the Guess would be using Marciano’s personal lawyer for the investigation she flipped her Insta shit, and declared that she would in no way cooperate with Guess due to the solidarity they’re showing with Marciano: Hearing how this ‘investigation’ is being conducted, and also knowing a strong fear of retaliation still exists within Guess’ corporate offices, is extremely disappointing and upsetting. The #MeToo movement is not one of smoke and mirrors, or for corporate office PR stunts to impress shareholders — it’s a call to action for TRUE change. To conduct an investigation like this seems like a stunt, and is a clear indication to me that Guess is not taking these claims seriously, nor are they committed to making changes at the highest levels. Until Guess makes a commitment to conduct an unbiased investigation, I have declined to participate. I look forward to participating if and when Guess retains a truly independent firm to run the entire investigation. You can read her full Instagram post below, but basically Upton is secretly thanking the #MeToo Gods that she’s uncovered another layer of adversity. The real solution to this whole thing would be to employ more ugly models that no one would want to molest. Thoughts, Gigi and Bella Hadid?   Let’s make true change happen! #metoo #TRUEchange A post shared by Kate Upton (@kateupton) on Feb 28, 2018 at 1:39pm PST Photo Credit: Sports Illustrated / Pacific Coast News The post Guess Kate Upton Won’t Cooperate With Investigation appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»

As we previously reported, on Friday, Donald Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI about conversations with Russia's ambassador AND has promised his "full cooperation" in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation! Related: The View Panel Is NOT Surprised By Matt Lauer's Firing We know, crazzzzzy stuff. Understandably, Trump critics everywhere have had QUITE the reaction to learning the news. In fact, our favorite response to the bombshell came from -- drumroll, please -- The View ladies. While taping their show, a View staffer ran out on stage with a breaking news card. Joy Behar was handed the information and gleefully read: "ABC News' Bryan Ross is reporting Michael Flynn promised full cooperation to the Mueller team and is prepared to testify that as a candidate Donald Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians! Yes!" While all the women celebrated, Joy threw the cue card up in the air and happily told her cohosts: "On election night, I had to wear a veil, I was in mourning. So, this is like the antithesis of that hideous night." We hear that. Be sure to watch the JOYous moment (sorry, we had to) for yourself (below)! [Image via ABC/YouTube.].....»»

Donald Trump Posted A Lot Of Shitty Tweets This Morning, But This One Was Definitely The Worst

Are you serious, Donald Trump?? The Cheeto-in-Chief went on a Twitter spree this morning, posting more than a dozen tweets about his favorite subjects: Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, polling numbers, tax cuts, the 2016 election (that he STILL can't stop talking about), etc., etc… But one tweet — by far — was the worst, and frankly most [...] Are you serious, Donald Trump?? The Cheeto-in-Chief went on a Twitter spree this morning, posting more than a dozen tweets about his favorite subjects: Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, polling numbers, tax cuts, the 2016 election (that he STILL can't stop talking about), etc., etc... But one tweet -- by far -- was the worst, and frankly most offensive, tweet of them all. Related: Everyone Remember The Name Emma Gonzalez!!! It's this one here, in which Trump somehow seemingly argues that the FBI would have been able to stop the Florida high school shooter if only they hadn't been... so preoccupied about Russia?!?! Look (below): Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 18, 2018 Dude, are you serious?! First off, can you show your condolences in a real, authentic, human way to all the victims and survivors of the tragedy in Florida instead of making it all about yourself?? And second, and most important from a fuckin' COMMON SENSE perspective, Donald do you really not realize that different departments in the FBI do different things? Related: Celebs React To The Latest School Shooting Some portions of the FBI investigate your crooked ass... while other COMPLETELY SEPARATE portions of the FBI deal with crimes and threats like the Florida school shooter. It's a big organization. It can do multiple things at once. Field agents all over the country are assigned to specific, varied beats. The entire freakin' bureau isn't investigating your ties to Russia, Donald. How is it possible that one man -- and our PRESIDENT, no less -- can be this dumb??

Watch Attorney General Jeff Sessions Awkwardly Respond To Donald Trump Saying He Wished He Hadn"t Appointed Him!

How can a man be a leader when all he sees are enemies?? On Wednesday night, The New York Times published its most disturbing piece on Donald Trump yet — an interview with him. The POTUS' take on being under investigation shows a terrifying lack of self awareness and accountability. And while that may not be new, [...] How can a man be a leader when all he sees are enemies?? On Wednesday night, The New York Times published its most disturbing piece on Donald Trump yet -- an interview with him. The POTUS' take on being under investigation shows a terrifying lack of self awareness and accountability. And while that may not be new, Drumpf going after his own people is. Related: SNL Writer Responds To Donald Trump's Tweets Like They're Texts In particular Trump revealed he's upset with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who recused himself from the Russia investigation after it came out he had lied in his confirmation hearings about having any contact with members of the Russian government (he had met twice with Ambassador Sergey I. Kislyak). The President said of the AG he appointed: "Jeff Sessions takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself, which frankly I think is very unfair to the president. How do you take a job and then recuse yourself? If he would have recused himself before the job, I would have said, ‘Thanks, Jeff, but I'm not going to take you.' It's extremely unfair — and that's a mild word — to the president... Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else." Damn! Trump really thought he was going to have the Justice Department in his pocket! As for Sessions, he tried to brush off the POTUS' comments on Thursday morning, but it was clear he was rattled. Ch-ch-check out the moment he's asked about the comments (below)! His little eyes look like they're welling up with tears! We never thought we'd feel bad for Jefferson Beauregard Sessions. ... OK, we're over it. Related: Trump's Son, Son-In-Law, & Former Campaign Manager Will ALL Testify About Russia Meeting The other two key things Trump did in the interview? First, he made it VERY clear he doesn't think his team's interaction with Russian agents or his obstruction of justice charges are a big deal, saying: "I don't think we're under investigation. I'm not under investigation. For what? I didn't do anything wrong." He said his secret second meeting with Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit was just 15 minutes of chit chat, mostly about adoption -- even though witnesses say it was a solid hour. Second, he was as obvious as a child holding something behind his back when it came to special counsel Robert Mueller extending his investigation to the Trump family's business dealings, saying that would cross a line: "I would say yes... I think that's a violation. Look, this is about Russia." Not too surprising he doesn't want to be investigated. Remember, there's a reason he won't release his tax returns. We're talking about a family that takes money from children's charities. [Image via NBC News.].....»»

"He Has Done This To Himself": Jeffrey Tambor Accuser Comes Forward With New Statement Defending Amazon"s Investigation

After accusations of sexual harassment by his assistant and a guest star, Jeffrey Tambor was the subject of an internal investigation by Amazon — and eventually fired from Transparent. The Emmy-winning actor did not react well to the news, calling the investigation "deeply flawed and biased toward the toxic politicized atmosphere that afflicted our set." He has [...] After accusations of sexual harassment by his assistant and a guest star, Jeffrey Tambor was the subject of an internal investigation by Amazon -- and eventually fired from Transparent. The Emmy-winning actor did not react well to the news, calling the investigation "deeply flawed and biased toward the toxic politicized atmosphere that afflicted our set." He has even found some backup in colleagues like Arrested Development costar David Cross, who said he finds Amazon's investigatory methods "curious" and less than, well, transparent. Related: Ryan Seacrest's Former Stylist Breaks Silence About Alleged Sexual Misconduct Now one of the women accusing Tambor is calling B.S. on his response. Van Barnes, whom reality TV fans might recognize from her appearances on I Am Cait, released a lengthy statement to The Hollywood Reporter, calling her former boss's claims he knew nothing about this "completely ludicrous." See the entire statement to get her side of the investigation (below): "For two years I worked as Mr. Tambor's personal assistant during the filming of the Amazon show Transparent, as well as assisting him on other projects and in his private life. During this time, I experienced an extremely volatile work environment, which included frequent and persistent sexual harassment, physical harassment, verbal abuse and abuse of power by Mr. Tambor. During this time, I made several attempts to address Mr. Tambor's inappropriate behavior with both executives of the show as well as with Mr. Tambor's personal management team at The Burstein Co., all to no avail. Mr. Tambor's assertion that these accusations were never revealed or discussed with him are completely ludicrous. In January 2017, when it was clear to me that things would not change with Mr. Tambor, I quit working as his assistant. In November 2017, Jill Solloway's company, Topple Productions, took steps to investigate Mr. Tambor's behavior on the set of Transparent in light of the accusations by not only me, but my fellow castmate, Trace Lysette, as well. An outside legal investigative firm specializing in employment-related harassment was hired, and they conducted a thorough, three-month-long investigation. The investigation was extremely professional, exhaustingly thorough and all-encompassing. For Mr. Tambor to now characterize this investigation as "biased" and "politicized" is an insult to the numerous people he has worked with through the years who were forced to participate in an investigation created by his own actions. Mr. Tambor's lengthy abuse and harassment of me continues to haunt me and is a clear indication of how we got to this point. I take no celebration in the firing of Mr. Tambor from Transparent, because this man's actions have jeopardized many people's jobs, especially many transgender people struggling to find work in Hollywood. I do however believe it is just. He has done this to himself. I have stood behind my #metoo post, because as it took shape I realized that I had an opportunity to protect the next victim and to challenge my employer to take an important position for transgender employment protection. All of these events are completely unfortunate, and I am forever changed by this. This has and continues to be a long road toward recovery and forward movement. It is highly unfortunate that Mr. Tambor has chosen to lash out at myself, Jill Soloway, and others, rather than accept accountability for his actions. I stand by my truths." What do YOU think about this new statement?? [Image via Instagram/FayeSadou/Media Punch.].....»»

Disgusting! NRA Spokeswoman Dana Loesch Says Many In Media "Love Mass Shootings"!

It's that time of year. The end of February marks Spring when a young man's fancy turns to love. And when shady lobbyists speak openly to their right-wing allies.

The end of February marks Spring when a young man's fancy turns to love. And when shady lobbyists speak openly to their right-wing allies. Yep, the National Rifle Association has descended on the Conservative Political Action Conference, the annual rally where all the worst Republicans can get together and talk about hating immigrants and the poor without fear of being disagreed with. Video: Trump Is 'Very Strongly' Considering Arming Teachers! This year, the hot-button issue of the moment is of course gun control, and the NRA's Dana Loesch decided to take a shotgun to any teensy shred of good will she garnered by attending CNN's Town Hall meeting with the survivors from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. How? Oh, by implying the media want there to be MORE shootings! She said: "Many in legacy media love mass shootings. You guys love it. Now I'm not saying that you love the tragedy, but I am saying that you love the ratings. Crying white mothers are ratings gold." Wow. This is how they think, folks. They see students speaking out and say, who's paying them? They see news organizations reporting devastating human stories and see dollar signs. They just really don't *get* empathy. Related: Trump Actually Made The Shooting About Himself And His Russia Investigation Loesch also went after the FBI, blaming them for "dropping the ball" on every mass shooting. Apparently she thinks the FBI are like car alarms that are just always there. Basically, she's just ready to blame anything or anyone but guns for mass shootings. Her boss, NRA executive vice president and CEO Wayne LaPierre made a surprise drop-in where he went even further, saying Democrats, whom he called secret socialists, and the media wanted to "exploit tragedy for political gain": "They want to sweep right under the carpet the failure of school security, the failure of family, the failure of America's mental health system, and even the unbelievable failure of the FBI." There it is again. They are going all-in against the FBI. It's almost as if they're in an adversarial position because the FBI is investigating whether their organization funneled Russian funds to help the Trump campaign. [Image via YouTube.].....»»

Russia, Ass-Kissing, & Torture! Why Trump"s Next Picks For Secretary Of State & CIA Director Should Scare You!

You never think Donald Trump's team can get worse, and then you find yourself wishing you had the CEO of ExxonMobil back as Secretary of State… That's because the new pick, Mike Pompeo, isn't just totally loyal to Trump in an alarmingly dictatorial way, that also seems to extend to loyalty to Russia. As CIA director, [...] You never think Donald Trump's team can get worse, and then you find yourself wishing you had the CEO of ExxonMobil back as Secretary of State... That's because the new pick, Mike Pompeo, isn't just totally loyal to Trump in an alarmingly dictatorial way, that also seems to extend to loyalty to Russia. As CIA director, Pompeo has already put Trumpian spin on info from his agency, saying publicly they had determined Russian meddling hadn't affected the election. Related: Donald Trump Gets Creatively Racist On His California Trip The CIA had to issue a statement afterward saying the statement by their director was NOT TRUE; they had not done such an assessment. It seems this kind of blind eye toward Russia is what Trump was looking for all along. After all, it seems clear at this point now-fired-by-tweet Rex Tillerson, who survived for months after calling his boss "a fucking moron" was fired 24 hours after agreeing it appeared the Russian government was behind a nerve gas attack in Salisbury, England on a former agent and his daughter. The U.K. is reportedly looking at expelling 23 Russian diplomats over the incident. Trump hasn't even tweeted about it. Why? In case you hadn't noticed, TRUMP NEVER SAYS A BAD WORD ABOUT RUSSIA! He hasn't even enacted the sanctions Congress passed. It's called not biting the hand that feeds. It's like it's collusion you can watch in real time. And it appears this isn't the first time Russia was the reason for a change in Trump's cabinet. Related: Brandi Glanville Is CONVINCED Omarosa Slept With Trump Too According to a post-election memo written by British spy Christopher Steele, it was Putin that told Trump not to appoint Mitt Romney, who was the frontrunner for Secretary of State. He just wasn't pro-Russia enough. So he became a meme for nothing: No German word long enough for whatever that emotion is pic.twitter.com/hdDrD7EgbO — Jared Currier (@JaredCurrier) November 30, 2016 As for the new CIA director replacing Pompeo, Gina Haspel has her own problems... She apparently ran a secret CIA "black site" for torturing prisoners after 9/11 -- which many believe led to bad intel from non al-Qaida members who made shit up just to not be tortured anymore. Haspel also reportedly had a hand in destroying detainee interrogation tapes sought by the 9/11 commission, in violation of court orders. Someone willing to obstruct justice. Trump really does pick the best people. [Image via Ron Sachs/Chris Kleponis/CNP/Media Punch/CIA.].....»»
