House Democrats’ IT Suspects Wanted Untraceable Payments, and Millions Disappeared

A Pakistani family under criminal investigation by the U.S. Capitol Police for abusing their access to the House of Representatives information technology system may have engaged in myriad other questionable schemes besides allegedly placing “ghost employees” on the congressional payroll. Imran Awan, his wife Hina, and brothers Abid and Jamal collectively netted more than $4 million in salary as IT administrators for House Democrats between 2009 and 2017. Yet the absence of signs of wealth displayed among them raise questions such as was the money sent overseas or did something other than paychecks motivate their actions? Capitol Police revoked the Awans’ access to the congressional IT system in February after a major data breach was detected.

‘War Machine’ Sheds Light on the Naiveté of Nation-Building

“War Machine,” a newly released film produced by Netflix, is a satirical skewering of the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan. It stars Brad Pitt as a very thinly veiled version of Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the senior commander of U.S./allied military operations in Afghanistan for a year, from June 2009 until June 2010.

The film offers snapshots of events that give visual life to a bombshell Rolling Stone essay from the late journalist Michael Hastings that led to McChrystal’s dismissal. ”War Machine” has received very mixed reviews, with most taking a critical opinion of the acting and editing. Interestingly, a few reviews have noted that the most positive reception has … Read entire article »

Reagan Scholar: Trump Should Hold Russia Accountable for Plot to Kill Pope

A scholar of Ronald Reagan’s presidency says that by publicizing Moscow’s role in the 1981 attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II, he hopes to prompt President Donald Trump to hold Russia accountable for what has been called “the crime of the century.” Paul Kengor, a professor of political science at Grove City College, writes about the bond that drove Reagan and John Paul II to confront communism in his latest book, “A Pope and a President: John Paul II, Ronald Reagan, and the Extraordinary Untold Story of the 20th Century.” As previously reported by The Daily Signal, Kengor’s book explores what he sees as evidence that Russian foreign intelligence officials masterminded the plot to shoot and kill the pontiff. “[Soviet intelligence] ordered the assassination of the pope, and it’s finally time … Read entire article »

Hillary’s unused ‘victory’ confetti now inside therapy snow globes for her glum fans

**Written by Doug Powers On election night in November, the Hillary Clinton campaign was ready to shower her victory partiers with a whole lot of confetti, but instead, the party favor containers ended up like the copy of Monogamy Forever somebody once gave Bill: Unopened. But that confetti is now being turned into therapeutic “art” for #StrongerTogether support groups: Early on election night last November, artist Bunny Burson looked to New York City’s Javits Center ceiling, expecting … Read entire article »
