This could get ugly…

Here’s a story involving former Special Counsel Robert Mueller that only has a little to do with Russia, if you can believe that. Apparently, Mueller lied to Congress.

You see, a couple of years ago Mueller met with President Trump at the White House. He was interested in becoming director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in light of James Comey having been shown the door.

But when Mueller was asked by Congress if he was pursuing the job back in 2017, he said no. He apparently lied. He reportedly was in pursuit.

Multiple administration officials tell Fox News that when Robert Mueller met with President Trump in May of 2017, Mueller was indeed pursuing the open post as the director of the FBI – something the former Russia probe special counsel denied under oath during congressional testimony this summer.

These officials also told Fox News government documents showed Mueller was pursuing the job as a candidate himself.

It came as emails released this month through a Freedom of Information Act request by the conservative group Judicial Watch seemed to indicate Mueller knew there was a real possibility he could be named special counsel if he wasn’t chosen as the next FBI director.

You know how the “Mueller Report” completely vindicated Trump’s 2016 campaign of all collusion with Russia?

Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan doesn’t see it that way.

According to John, the Mueller report that clears Trump actually proves Trump colluded with the Kremlin.

So, figure that one out.

Trump highlighted the fact that he was vindicated:

Enter Brennan:

A more accurate summation: much collusion with Russia yet insufficient evidence to establish criminal conspiracy; extensive evidence of your efforts to obstruct justice, with Congress determining ultimate accountability; many criminal investigations on related activities ongoing.

North Korea Situation Turns Dire as Gov’t Taps Emergency Reserves

Things are taking a turn for the worse under Kim Jong Un.

Let this be a lesson to all of the would-be despots out there in the world:  Running a hermit kingdom based on dynastic lies and the exploitation of your population is never going to work out in the long run…even in a nation as small as North Korea. For decades, (and generations), the Kim family has ruled over the DPRK with an iron fist, pillaging the population and living in opulence and divine reverence.  Now, with Kim Jong Un still clinging to power despite a number of health concerns, it seems as though the nation is falling into complete ruin. North Korea is releasing emergency military rice reserves as its food shortage worsens, South Korea’s spy agency said Tuesday, with a heat wave and drought reducing the country’s supply. North Korea’s reported food problems come as its moribund economy continues to be battered by the protracted COVID-19 pandemic. And it could get worse still… While mass starvation and social chaos have not been reported, observers expect a further deterioration of North Korea’s food situation until the autumn harvest. Seoul’s National Intelligence Service told a closed-door parliamentary committee meeting that North Korea is supplying rice reserved for wartime use to citizens with little food, other laborers, and rural state agencies, according to Ha Tae-keung, one of the lawmakers who attended the session. North Korea’s tumultuous relationship with the global community will likely limit the amount of assistance they’ll receive from the outside world, as many nations are still engaged in heavy sanctions against the dictatorship.

Top Rock Band Fires Drummer Because He Can’t Take Vaccine

The rock band Offspring have dumped their own “unsafe” drummer because he is medically unable to take the coronavirus vaccine.

The rock band Offspring have dumped their own “unsafe” drummer because he is medically unable to take the coronavirus vaccine. The band’s drummer, Pete Parada, said that he is unable to take the coronavirus vaccine because of his medical history. “Given my personal medical history and the side-effect profile of these jabs, my doctor has advised me not to get a shot at this time,” Parada claimed in a social media post. “I caught the virus over a year ago, it was mild for me – so I am confident I’d be able to handle it again, but I’m not so certain I’d survive another post-vaccination round of Guillain-Barré Syndrome which dates back to my childhood and has evolved to be progressively worse over my lifetime. Unfortunately for me, (and my family – who is hoping to keep me around a bit longer) the risks far outweigh the benefits.” But because of his medical problems, the band is dumping him. “Since I am unable to comply with what is increasingly becoming an industry mandate – it has recently been decided that I am unsafe to be around, in the studio, and on tour,” Parada continued. “I mention this because you won’t be seeing me at these upcoming shows. I also want to share my story so that anyone else experiencing the agony and isolation of getting left behind right now – knows they’re not entirely alone.” This month has seen several venues beginning to require both the acts and the fans to be vaccinated or they won’t be allowed to enter the hall. With all this, Parada’s band has dumped him. But he has no hard feelings. “I have no negative feelings towards my band. They’re doing what they believe is best for them, while I am doing the same,”…
