Stockman Warns “A Great Big Coup Is On The Way”

So let’s start with an obvious point about the whole Russia fiasco…
Namely, there is no ‘there, there.’ First off, the president has the power to declassify secret documents at will. But in this instance he could also do that without compromising intelligence community (IC) ‘sources and methods’ in the slightest.
That’s because after Edward Snowden’s revelations in 2013, the whole world was put on notice – and most especially Washington’s adversaries – that it collects every single electronic digit that passes through the worldwide web and related communications grids.
Washington essentially has universal and omniscient SIGINT (signals intelligence). Acknowledging that fact by publishing the Russia-Trump intercepts would provide new knowledge to exactly no one.

Dramatic New Video Captures Exact Moment Shooter Opened Fire On GOP Baseball Practice

A shocking new video has just been released by the New York Post which reveals the exact moment that the “progressive,” never-Trumper James Hodgkinson opened fire on the GOP’s baseball practice in Alexandria, VA. As we noted earlier this morning, the shooting left Majority Whip Steve Scalise and 4 others hospitalized with gunshot wounds.
The video was taken by someone enjoying a stroll in the park when shooting broke out. As many as 25 gun shots can be heard in the recording though it’s unclear how many of the shots were fired by the gunman and how many were fired by police. In the end of the video you can see people huddling around someone, presumably Scalise, in the outfield just beyond the 2nd base position. Per the New York Post:
More than 25 bullets can be heard ripping through the air in the footage, which was captured by a witness close to the field at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park.
At one point, a man can be seen lying in the middle of the field.

And The 2017 Global Peace Prize Goes To… Black Lives Matter (No, Seriously)

Every year the Sydney Peace Foundation bestows their Global Peace Prize on extraordinary people who advocate for ‘true and lasting peace’ by ending ‘war and violent conflict’ through addressing ‘deep injustices and structural inequality.’
Previous years have seen such individuals as Noam Chomsky, Hans Blix and Archbishop Desmond Tutu receive the esteemed prize.
But this year the award is taking a different direction, and rather than being given to a single person, it is being awarded to an entire movement for the first time.
And the winner of the 2017 Global Peace Prize goes to…
Drum roll…
Black Lives Matter.
Black Lives Matter, the movement against racial inequality and police violence in the US which began as a powerful hashtag and became a global rallying cry, will be the 2017 recipient of the Sydney Peace Prize – the first time the often-controversial award has gone to a movement and not an individual.
