"I signed the birth certificate because at the time I believed I was the biological father," said Sinawa. He says the child's mother is even okay with him not paying child support because she doesn't want anything to do with him, but the state is forcing the issue...
NBC learned of the 'lawyering up' from three former CIA officials "familiar with the matter," while two more anonymous leakers claim there's tension between the Justice Department and the CIA over what classified documents Durham has access to. One Western intelligence official familiar with Durham's investigation leaked that Durham has been asking foreign officials questions related to former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, who was fed the rumor that Russia had 'dirt' on Hillary Clinton by a Maltese professor, Joseph Mifsud. According to congressional testimony given by Papadopoulos last October as well as statements he's made over Twitter, the whole thing was an FBI setup - as a 'woman in London, who was the FBI's legal attache in the UK' and "had a personal relationship to Bob Mueller after 9/11" was the one who recommended that he meet with Mifsud in Rome...
Erdogan threatened the Kurds on Saturday during a televised speech, saying they will be slaughtered if they don't pull back from the 20-mile-wide safe zone along the Turkey-Syria border by Tuesday night. "We will start where we left off and continue to crush the terrorists' heads," Erdogan said. Turkey claims it is living up to the terms of the cease-fire agreement and accused the Kurds of violating it. The Turkish Defense Ministry said Kurdish forces carried out 14 "provocative" attacks in Ras al-Ayn in 36 hours, according to the BBC.
He told MPs: "I will not negotiate a delay with the EU and neither does the law compel me to do so." He vowed to bring in legislation on Monday to implement the deal he struck with Brussels this week.
MPs had been geared up for a make-or-break vote on Mr Johnson's Brexit deal on the first Saturday sitting of Parliament since the Falklands War 37 years ago. But in the end there was no vote on whether to back the deal or not. MPs voted for an amendment tabled by former Conservative MP Sir Oliver Letwin, withholding approval of the deal until the legislation to implement it is in place. Ministers argue that this would delay Brexit - but Sir Oliver and his supporters, who back the deal, say it is an insurance policy to prevent it turning into a no-deal exit. The main government motion, as amended, was passed without a vote, meaning the Benn Act kicks in and prime minister must request a three month extension
The U.S. Army and a prominent UFO research group are teaming up to investigate mysterious technology, but won’t come out and say where the tech comes from.
It’s hard to know what to make of all this. The Army obviously thinks there's something worth sticking its reputation out for, but there isn't any evidence available to the public to justify its association with a UFO research group.
Funding research into UFOs is one thing, and the U.S. government has done it multiple times over the past 70 years. Expecting actual technology samples from UFOs is another thing. Agreeing to do research and development work on them is something else entirely...
If you're thinking why would the army bring in outsiders for this, there's some background to it. Basically the Blink182 group got a hold of video and released it thinking they were allowed to, but it might not have been cleared to have been released. However they did, and it is interesting to say the least.
Photo above shows Rep. Katie Hill - the Vice Chair of Oversight DEMs - naked, brushing the hair of her young staffer.
Photographs and text messages obtained by RedState show that Rep. Hill was involved in a long-term sexual relationship with a female campaign staffer. The woman, whose name is not being released, was hired by Hill in late 2017 and quickly became involved in a “throuple” relationship with Hill and her estranged husband, Kenny Heslep.
A review of FEC records for Hill’s 2018 and 2020 campaigns reveals that the staffer was first paid in November 2017, with her payment classified as “salary,” making her an employee. California law doesn’t expressly prohibit consensual sexual relationships between an employer and a direct report, but it’s certainly a murky legal and ethical area. Some legal pundits contend that an employee can’t truly consent to a sexual relationship with the person who signs their paycheck.
In addition to the legal and ethical issues raised by allegations of a congresswoman having not one, but two extramarital affairs with people on her staff, concurrently, there are issues of national security. Hill serves on two influential committees in that regard...
"Based on both Media & Democrat Crazed and Irrational Hostility, we will no longer consider Trump National Doral, Miami, as the Host Site for the G-7 in 2020," he tweeted. "We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately."...
“This is serious. As sure as the turning of the earth, he is going to be impeached by Pelosi in the next six weeks,” Bannon said during a wide-ranging interview with The Post. “Nancy Pelosi is very focused.”
“I don’t feel comfortable when I see the chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney,” Bannon said, citing a disastrous press conference Thursday in which Mulvaney confirmed Trump’s decision to withhold military aid to Ukraine was part of a quid pro quo. He later walked that back. “The problem we have is that the president needs a team around him and somebody has got to step up and make a play. Trump can’t do everything,” Bannon said. “There is just no coordination with the team. “The fake news and witch hunt stuff is not working.”
And while the GOP-controlled Senate would likely never find Trump guilty in an impeachment trial, Bannon repeatedly refused to offer a full vote of confidence to leader Mitch McConnell — who he called an adversary — and instead expressed frustration that the Senate leader might opt for a drawn-out public trial.

In recent days, 8kun.net has briefly flickered online before disappearing again, thanks mostly to the work of 8chan founder Fredrick Brennan, who has been pressuring hosting and networking companies to drop support for the site... Brennan is clear about why he never wants 8chan and 8kun to come back online: QAnon. “One of the reasons I am trying to get this done, preemptively, is so that QAnon cannot come back,” Brennan told VICE News from his home in the Philippines. “It is critical that 8kun does not come back at all, in any form, for any length of time.”
As of Friday morning, 8kun.net remains inaccessible. With China’s censorship apparatus likely to kick the website offline without any pressure from Brennan, it is unclear where the operators of the site can turn next...
Multiple attempts by 8kun to come online has been blocked due to Brennan's gorilla-lobbying. If you visit this little dweebs Twitter account, he's on a mission to make sure 8kun never comes back online. We wonder if the methods he's using to shut down another person's right to do business is legal. He's also been on record claiming Jim Watkins has dementia along with other false accusations. We included a screenshot of Philippine law as he's a resident of that country. This is where he's been launching his attacks from. It seems what he's doing might be illegal. The only thing is, does Watkins know this?
