Meeting between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch Provokes Political Furor

Go easy on Hillary

WASHINGTON — An airport encounter this week between Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch and former President Bill Clinton has welled into a political storm, with Republicans asserting that it compromised the Justice Department’s politically sensitive investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email practices while she was secretary of state.

Ms. Lynch said the meeting with Mr. Clinton was unplanned, largely social and did not touch on the email investigation. She suggested that he walked uninvited from his plane to her government plane, which were both parked on a tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

“He did come over and say hello, and speak to my husband and myself, and talk about his grandchildren and his travels and things like that,” Ms. Lynch said at a news conference in Los Angeles on Wednesday, where she was promoting community policing. “That was the extent of that. And no discussions were held into any cases or things like that.” SOURCE

And if YOU actually BELIEVE the above BS, I have some oceanfront property that I’ll sell you, it’s out by Phoenix and reasonably priced, it has a lovely view with soft, white, sandy beaches and gentle breezes, not to mention fabulous sunsets.   Continue reading

At least 31 dead, 147 injured in terror attack at Istanbul airport

Attack in Turkey

BREAKING: At least 31 people were killed and 147 more were injured when three suicide bombers attacked Istanbul’s main international airport Tuesday night, Turkey’s justice minister said.

Bekir Bozdag confirmed the death toll from the blasts at Istanbul Ataturk Airport. A senior government official initially told the Associated Press that close to 50 people had already died, but later said that the figure was expected to rise to close to 50.

A Turkish official told Reuters that the “vast majority” of victims were Turkish, but some foreigners were also affected.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the same senior Turkish official told AP that initial indications suggested the Islamic State terror group (ISIS) were behind the attack. According to Reuters, a police source also told the Dogan News Agency, “ISIS is behind the attack.” There was no immediate formal confirmation from the Ankara government. SOURCE

British vote has Texas Nationalists calling for “Texit”

British vote has Texas Nationalists calling for “Texit”

TexitThe historic “Brexit” vote has the Texas Nationalist Movement calling on Governor Greg Abbott to support a “Texit.”

“It is past time that the people of Texas had their say on our continued relationship with the Union and its sprawling Federal bureaucracy,” TNM president Daniel Miller posted on the group’s website. “The win for Brexit opens the door for Texit by establishing, concretely, that it is possible to have an adult conversation on independence and letting the people have the final say.”

On Thursday British voters decided to leave the EU following a bitterly divisive referendum campaign. Britain’s electoral commission said 52 percent of voters opted to leave the EU. Turnout was high with 72 percent of registered voters casting ballots.

“It’s a victory for ordinary people, decent people. It’s a victory against the big merchant banks, against big politics. I’m proud of everyone that had to stand up and do the right thing,” said Nigel Farage, the UK Independence Party leader. SOURCE

Sure it’s something to consider, but there are a lot of questions to answer as well, primary for me and folks in MY age group being; what happens to our Social Security and Health benefits that many of us paid into for 40 or more years?  

Do you suppose the USA will give a damn about us if Texas leaves? Would Texas make up the difference for those currently on Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare?    Continue reading
