    All the post you've provided says, is Russia was trying to influence politics in America by giving money to the Clintons, or their Charity. This has nothing to do with Mueller who was appointed by the Republicans and POTUS. The same POTUS, who is nominally the head of the Republicans, but a lot of Republicans seem to be wavering these days. It is also an old story. But more relevant, is your attempt to draw attention away from Trump's mounting woes, by saying ""Oooh look, Hillary!"

    However :: Theres some other reporting below > Mocking students 'performed the haka', says Native American witness https://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=12193628 By: Adam Beam and Brian Melley Students from a Kentucky Catholic school who mocked Native Americans in Washington, performed the haka, according to a member of the US tribal group. The confrontation took place outside the Lincoln Memorial after a Washington rally. Marcus Frejo, a member of the Pawnee and Seminole tribes who is also known as Chief Quese Imc, said he had been a part of the Indigenous Peoples March and was among a small group of people remaining after the rally when the boisterous students began chanting slogans such as "make America great" and then began doing a haka. In a phone interview, Frejo told Associated Press that he felt they were mocking the traditional Māori dance. One 11-minute video of the confrontation shows a roughly performed dance that doesn't bear much resemblance to a traditional haka, and students loudly chanting before Nathan Phillips and Frejo approached them. Videos circulating online show a youth staring at and standing extremely close to Phillips, a 64-year-old Native American man singing and playing a drum. Other students, some wearing Covington clothing and many wearing "Make America Great Again" hats and sweat shirts, surrounded them, chanting, laughing and jeering. The Indigenous Peoples March in Washington coincided with the March for Life, which drew thousands of anti-abortion protesters, including a group from Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Kentucky. In a joint statement, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School apologised and said they are investigating and will take "appropriate action, up to and including expulsion". "We extend our deepest apologies to Mr Phillips," the diocese statement read. "This behaviour is opposed to the Church's teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person." According to the "Indian Country Today" website, Phillips is an Omaha elder and Vietnam veteran who holds an annual ceremony honouring Native American veterans at Arlington National Cemetery. Frejo said he joined Phillips to defuse the situation, singing the anthem from the American Indian Movement with both men beating out the tempo on hand drums. Although he feared a mob mentality that could turn ugly, Frejo said he was at peace singing despite the scorn. He briefly felt something special happen as they repeatedly sang the tune. "They went from mocking us and laughing at us to singing with us. I heard it three times," Frejo said. "That spirit moved through us, that drum, and it slowly started to move through some of those youths." Eventually a calm fell over the group of students and they broke up and walked away. (Wot? no AR15s?) The videos prompted a torrent of outrage online. Actress and activist Alyssa Milano tweeted that the footage "brought me to tears", while actor Chris Evans tweeted that the students' actions were "appalling" and "shameful". Covington Catholic High School's Facebook page was not available at time of reporting and its Twitter feed was set to private. ______ "The videos prompted a torrent of outrage online. Actress and activist Alyssa Milano tweeted that the footage "brought me to tears", while actor Chris Evans tweeted that the students' actions were "appalling" and "shameful"." This could be read as - "Attention Whores find, after weeks of being ignored, an interesting confrontation, to be outraged over"

    Mueller might finally have a smoking gun ...The assertion that Senate Republicans would never break with Trump and never vote to impeach has rested primarily on the assumption that the evidence would never be so conclusive and the crime would never be so serious that senators would lack excuses to avoid conviction. All of that goes out the window if multiple pieces of evidence demonstrate Trump suborned perjury. At that point, public opinion may present Republicans with a choice: Get Trump out of office now, or we’ll vote all of you out in 2020. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/01/18/mueller-might-finally-have-smoking-gun/?utm_term=.2f001cd8e42e
  7. Trump meets with top North Korean official amid speculation of a second summit with Kim Jong Un (A.K.A. receives instructions from 'Rocket Man') President Trump met with a senior North Korean official at the White House on Friday amid speculation that the two sides could soon announce a second summit between him and Kim Jong Un. Trump welcomed Kim Yong Chol, a former spy chief, who was reported to be delivering a personal letter from North Korea’s authoritarian leader. Kim, who has served as Pyongyang’s lead negotiator on nuclear talks, also visited Trump in the Oval Office in June to seal plans for the first summit later that month in Singapore. “They will discuss relations between the two countries and progress on North Korean denuclearization,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/pompeo-meets-with-top-north-korean-official-to-nail-down-second-summit-between-trump-and-kim-jong-un/2019/01/18/510543c6-1b35-11e9-9ebf-c5fed1b7a081_story.html?utm_term=.2ff68ecd1492

    Prince Philip crash: New Land Rover delivered to Sandringham for royal after crash A replacement black Land Rover has been delivered to Sandringham, after Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, rolled his in a crash. (because if they replace it, maybe he wont notice it's a new one) The car was driven into the Queen's residence on Friday morning (Friday night, NZ time), inside a delivery truck, the Mirror reported. Meanwhile, the speed limit on the road where the accident happened is being reduced. (because we cant have one's peasants driving into Philip again) https://www.stuff.co.nz/world/europe/110032501/prince-philip-crash-new-land-rover-delivered-to-sandringham-for-royal-after-crash

    A big fuse is lit Analysis by Anthony Zurcher, BBC News With the longest government shutdown in history poised to stretch into a fifth week, Washington has become a political powder keg. The report on Thursday night that there is documentary evidence Donald Trump directed his former attorney to lie to Congress just lit a big fuse. If the Buzzfeed story is substantiated - and it asserts this evidence is already in the hands of Mr Mueller - this would appear to present a strong case for presidential obstruction of justice. Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar, in a hearing on Tuesday, prompted attorney general nominee William Barr to acknowledge as much. Already the quiet whispers of impeachment among House Democrats are getting louder. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been able to tamp down this sentiment so far, but she may be unable - or unwilling - to keep it under wraps much longer. For almost two years, Mr Mueller's Russia investigation has been a cipher, with details of its activities coming only in opaque legal filings and anonymous accounts of unascertainable veracity. It seems the time for him to put his cards on the table and end the speculation and parlour-game guessing is rapidly approaching. In fact it's past time, if you ask some Democrats. - from the fakest of fake news - https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46915909

    You should also know, that everything is your fault, the fate of men these days is to provide sperm and buy houses for women, any outcome that is less than the ultimate expression of the 'Princess Delusion' is a travesty and you are to blame.

    Pendulum has swung and has yet to reach it's apex, it'll be a generation or so before it's begun to swing back. I like the look of her and she's IMHO a better looking version of our Jacinda. I've been unfortunate/fortunate enough to have grown up in the era of feminism becoming main stream and now I reckon we're going to see the logical progression of more ladies moving into positions, for which, their gender previously had them at a disadvantage. To those who noted her good looks, I'll relate a small tale. Once, after I'd hired a person for an IT position, who happened to be a cute Asian girl, when grumblings from the female staff were detected along the lines of "She just got hired because she's pretty", I was heard to say "I am an equal opportunity employer, I believe that good looking people should have the same equal rights and access to employment as the less beautiful". Needless to say that didn't go down well and I was watched like a hawk, for any sign of an affair or stationery room knee trembler...

  14. Junta’s Empty Promises to Respect Rights, Restore Democracy Thailand’s junta did little in 2018 to address the country’s mounting human rights concerns, Human Rights Watch said today in its World Report 2019. The ruling National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) has promised general elections in February 2019, but took no steps to ensure they will lead to genuine civilian democratic rule. “With an election approaching, Thailand’s junta should fully restore democratic freedoms so that all political parties can fully and fairly participate in the electoral process,” said Brad Adams, Asia director. “But so far the junta just keeps persecuting critics, banning peaceful protests, and censoring the media.” With an election approaching, Thailand’s junta should fully restore democratic freedoms so that all political parties can fully and fairly participate in the electoral process. Brad Adams Asia Director In the 674-page World Report 2019, its 29th edition, Human Rights Watch reviewed human rights practices in more than 100 countries. In his introductory essay, Executive Director Kenneth Roth says that the populists spreading hatred and intolerance in many countries are spawning a resistance. New alliances of rights-respecting governments, often prompted and joined by civic groups and the public, are raising the cost of autocratic excess. Their successes illustrate the possibility of defending human rights – indeed, the responsibility to do so – even in darker times. Prime Minister Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha, as head of the NCPO, has ruled unhindered by administrative, legislative, or judicial oversight or accountability, including for serious human rights violations. The military is authorized to arrest, detain, and interrogate civilians without safeguards against abuse. At least 1,800 civilians face prosecution in military courts, which fall far short of international fair trial standards. Hundreds of activists and dissidents have been prosecuted on criminal charges such as sedition, computer-related crimes, and lese majeste (insulting the monarchy) for the peaceful expression of their views. Public gatherings of more than five people and pro-democracy activities remain prohibited. More than 100 activists recently faced illegal assembly charges, and some were accused of sedition for peacefully demanding elections without further delay and the lifting of restrictions on fundamental freedoms. The junta has routinely enforced censorship and blocked public discussions about human rights and democracy in Thailand. In December, Thai authorities blocked access to the Human Rights Watch’s Thailand web page. The junta disregards Thailand’s obligation to ensure that all human rights defenders can carry out their work in a safe and enabling environment. Government agencies and private companies have frequently retaliated against people who report allegations of abuse, filing criminal defamation and computer crimes lawsuits against them. The junta has not acted to provide justice for past serious violations, notably the 2003 “war on drugs” killings and the 2010 deadly dispersal of street protests. Nor has it prosecuted any security personnel for abusive counterinsurgency operations in the southern border provinces, where separatist insurgents have also committed numerous abuses against civilians. After the May 2014 coup, the United States, European Union, Australia, Japan, and many other countries said they would not fully restore bilateral relations until Thailand held free and fair elections to establish a democratic civilian government and improved respect for human rights. These governments should press the junta to immediately end repression, respect fundamental rights, and restore democratic civilian rule. “General Prayuth’s empty promises should not be accepted at face value nor be an excuse to return to business as usual with Thailand,” Adams said. “Thailand’s allies should publicly state that they’ll only recognize an election that fully respects the will of the Thai people.” https://www.hrw.org/news/2019/01/17/thailand-unrelenting-repression-ahead-election

    yes I saw that - She is the speaker, and Trump has once again disclosed classified material. I also see that Nancy suggested Trump cancel the state of the union address, or send written version. Perhaps written in sharpie on the back of a Big Mac wrapper...
