How about former Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie?

From Daily Wire:

With Jeff Sessions resigning as President Trump’s Attorney General, reports are now circulating that former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is in the running to take his place.

According to CBS News, two sources close to the president confirmed that Chris Christie, one of President Trump’s early supporters, is on the short list of potentials to replace Jeff Sessions, who announced his resignation just one day after the midterm elections where Democrats took back the U.S. House.

If not Christie, how about a woman with ties to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh?

From Fox News:

President Trump is considering a retired federal appeals court judge who also served on the California Supreme Court as the next U.S. attorney general following the Wednesday resignation of Jeff Sessions, according to reports.

Janice Rogers Brown, who is African-American and well-liked in conservative circles, served alongside Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and spoke to the White House about the job in recent weeks, the Sacramento Bee reported.

Democrats will have a field day if Trump chooses Brown. They’ll find a way to make it a big issue.

Others being considered for AG?

-Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (who just lost his bid for governor).

-Retiring Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.

-Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar.

-Former Attorney General William P. Barr.

-Trump personal attorney (and former NYC Mayor) Rudy Giuliani.

When women make up stories of sexual assault in order to destroy the lives of men with whom they disagree, all they’re doing is hurting the arguments for women who have actually been abused.

Take this woman, for example. She accused then-SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

She now admits she made up the whole story because she didn’t want Kavanaugh to become a Supreme Court justice.

Here’s the letter released by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA):

On September 25, 2018, staffers for Senator Harris, a Committee member, referred an undated handwritten letter to Committee investigators that her California office had received signed under the alias “Jane Doe” from Oceanside, California.

The letter contained highly graphic sexual-assault accusations against Judge Kavanaugh. The anonymous accuser alleged that Justice Kavanaugh and a friend had raped her “several times each” in the backseat of a car. In addition to being from an anonymous accuser, the letter listed no return address, failed to provide any timeframe, and failed to provide any location — beyond an automobile — in which these alleged incidents took place.

Committee investigators began investigating Ms. Munro-Leighton’s allegations. Given her relatively unique name, Committee investigators were able to use open-source research to locate Ms. Munro-Leighton and determine that she: (1) is a left-wing activist; (2) is decades older than Judge Kavanaugh; and (3) lives in neither the Washington DC area nor California, but in Kentucky.

Continued:

Under questioning by Committee investigators, Ms. Munro-Leighton admitted, contrary to her prior claims, that she had not been sexually assaulted by Judge Kavanaugh and was not the author of the original “Jane Doe” letter. When directly asked by Committee investigators if she was, as she had claimed, the “Jane Doe” from Oceanside California who had sent the letter to Senator Harris, she admitted: “No, no, no. I did that as a way to grab attention. I am not Jane Doe . . . but I did read Jane Doe’s letter. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee. . . . I saw it online. It was news.”

She further confessed to Committee investigators that (1) she “just wanted to get attention”; (2) “it was a tactic”; and (3) “that was just a ploy.” She told Committee investigators that she had called Congress multiple times during the Kavanaugh hearing process – including prior to the time Dr. Ford’s allegations surfaced – to oppose his nomination. Regarding the false sexual-assault allegation she made via her email to the Committee, she said: “I was angry, and I sent it out.”

When asked by Committee investigators whether she had ever met Judge Kavanaugh, she said: “Oh Lord, no.”

In short, during the Committee’s time-sensitive investigation of allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, Ms. Munro-Leighton submitted a fabricated allegation, which diverted Committee resources. When questioned by Committee investigators she admitted it was false, a “ploy,” and a “tactic.” She was opposed to Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

Trump, Ready to Make A Deal, Has Shutdown Compromise Offer for Dems

Will this be the compromise that brings us back to full federal strength, or will Nancy Pelosi pull another petulant and pedantic stunt in order to “resist” the President?

Published

government shutdown

There is little doubt that the democrats have been remiss in their duties to the American public, specifically in regard to the nation’s longest government shutdown.

We’re closing in on a month of this stalemate, where nearly 800,000 federal workers are being expected to put in the hours at their jobs for no pay.  The TSA has been hit the hardest, perhaps, with their underpaid staff simply quitting or calling in sick in order to find other work.

This security staff shortage has created incredibly long lines in the nation’s airports, has forced Miami International Airport to close an entire terminal, and may have been responsible for allowing a firearm to make it onto a Delta flight.

It seems as though the President is ready to make a deal to end this nonsense, however.

President Trump plans to use remarks from the Diplomatic Reception Room on Saturday afternoon to propose a notable immigration compromise, according to sources familiar with the speech.

Details: The offer is expected to include Trump’s $5.7 billion demand for wall money in exchange for the BRIDGE Act — which would extend protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) — and also legislation to extend the legal status of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, according to a source with direct knowledge.

Now the question will be whether or not the democrats are willing to negotiate with the Commander in Chief.

Earlier in the week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi drew the ire of President Trump by simply refusing to meet with him regarding a shutdown compromise – a move that angered a vast swath of the fed-up and frankly furious American populace.

GPS Watch Info Could Send Mafia Hitman Away for a LONG TIME

This is far from the first time that this sort of information has uncovered secrets, either.

There is no doubt that we often take for granted the risks involved with the latest and greatest technological advancements we enjoy, specifically in the realm of personal devices.

Sure, it is a fantastic advantage to carry around a cell phone capable of telling us exactly where we are at any given time, especially on a planet as vast as our own.  Not to mention that, with Wikipedia, we are able to know virtually anything in just a matter of a few seconds of thumb-work.

Heck, just yesterday I ordered a smoked chicken plate from a BBQ restaurant using only my smartphone.  And it was delicious.

But we must remember that there is a downside to all of this rampant connectivity.  Namely, that all of this information is being stored somewhere, and that this storage isn’t always the most private.

Take one mafia hitman, for example, who learned this lesson the hard way.

A British runner, cyclist, and mob hitman has been convicted for the murders of two rival gangsters, in part, because of his GPS watch. Mark “Iceman” Fellows, 39, was found guilty by a jury at Liverpool Crown Court of killing organized crime leader Paul “Mr. Big” Massey and his associate John Kinsella, 55 and 53 at the time of their deaths. Massey and Kinsella were also career criminals, part of a gang scene near Manchester, England, with a reputation known across Europe, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Though police already suspected Fellows in Kinsella’s death, it was his Garmin Forerunner that linked him to Massey’s unsolved 2015 murder. While detectives were investigating Fellows, they came across a photo of the suspect wearing his Garmin Forerunner during 2015’s Great Manchester 10K (he ran 47:17, pictured above) two months before the murder of Massey that July. Detectives then located the device at Fellows’s home and checked its GPS data for files that could link him to Massey.

This is far from the first time that this sort of information has uncovered secrets, either.

A company called Strava had earlier released a “heat map” of their products’ usage which publicly revealed a number of secret military installations where personnel were wearing their devices.
