It sucks that they’re charging a subscription, now, but, really, it’s worth it, and our 4th estate is really worthy of giving back a little bit of how much it’s given you.
Anyway, the Wall Street Journal.
This story breaks the issuing of criminal subpoenas in the Flynn case at the same time the Congressional Intelligence committees are issuing their own. This article further explains exactly what’s going on in this ever more-complicate story.

Make calls. Do whatcha do, how ya do. If you need a hand, let me know!
Well, congrats to Emmanuel Macron. To Democracy. And, to Western Civilization as a whole.
You all know about centrist Emmanuel Macron defeating Trump’s Fascist Party ally Marine Le Pen, and how he’s already helping his liberal legislative allies bolster numbers to cement their victory.

In France, the celebration for Macron’s victory was molten excitement like the celebration at the fact that Marine Le Pen and her Fascist dirtbag reich are again relegated to the shadows.
This isn’t an op-ed written to pretend to be breaking any news.
Not up in here today, peeps.
Instead, graciously accept this celebratory tribute video to Emmanuel Macron and the heroic people who stood up as one and saved the world. It’s the Brazilian version of the Macarena with clips of the French electorate dancing in the streets.
In just a couple days, the world has made a thing out of electing anyone ideologically disconnected from Donald Trump. The other day, Trump and Putin’s Nazi gal-pal Adolfie La Pen was flushed handily by the French, and today, South Korea denied Trump’s right-wing Axis of douchebag candidate and voted in the liberal candidate, Moon Jae-in.

Must give a preemptive hat tip to Bill Palmer – Editor in chief and feature writer for the Daily News Bin –> http://www.dailynewsbin.com. Palmer has diligently been reporting on the physical hack of voting systems in swing states that upset the presidential election in Donald Trump’s favor. The media establishment was focusing on simple ties between Trump cabinet members and various Russians while Bill Palmer was reporting on major irregularities in the physical voting machinery.
It was brushed off and ignored by major networks until just now as a Freedom of Information Act request verified and bolstered Palmer’s thesis.
I won’t go into the details here, because Palmer has already done it in a well-organized and impeccably-sourced article:

A spoiler-tease, though, it turns out that effing Betsy DeVos-linked RUSSIAN voting machines threw the election in Michigan, just for starters. Dig in, friends.
And, now, as you feel the pressure as you hold on to your faith and your Peter Pan advice and the piper feels like he’s comin’ callin, here’s a great song to bask in as it heats up. From, the Nylon Curtain.

So, in Dallas, a car full of innocent children drives away and an unhinged Klansman in a police uniform opens fire on it, murdering a 15 year-old little boy. Murderer is charged with murder and is arrested.
But, wait, what? Grand jury gets to decide if murderer even goes to trial for the murder?
There’s a chance that klansman murderer walks scot-free because some asshole who passed the bar exam gets to find fellow-klansmen to agree that the black kid was guilty of breathing-while-black?
