Manafort Might Still Have to Answer to Mueller

Manafort Might Still Have to Answer to MuellerSeventeen months, two trials, and one voided plea deal later, the former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has finally learned his fate: He’ll spend about seven years in federal prison for crimes he committed over more than a decade, marking one of the biggest prosecutorial victories for Special Counsel Robert Mueller since he launched his investigation nearly two years ago.Nevertheless, Mueller might not be quite done with Manafort yet, former prosecutors tell me. Court documents and pre-sentence hearings that dealt with the breach of Manafort’s plea deal suggest that prosecutors might have more ammunition to go after the 69-year-old on matters that go directly to the question of a conspiracy with Russia, rather than the financial crimes and violations of foreign-agent laws that he’s been charged with to date.Manafort pleaded guilty to tax and bank fraud and failing to register as a foreign…

FedEx earnings miss underlines weakness in the global economy

FedEx earnings miss underlines weakness in the global economyShipping companies are often the economic canary in the coal mine By Mark Huffman of ConsumerAffairs March 20, 2019 Is a recession on the way? FedEx, without using the word, suggests that could be the case. The package delivery company disappointed Wall Street after the bell Tuesday when it reported lower than expected quarterly profits and offered weaker full-year guidance. Business in the U.S. is just fine. After all, Amazon alone keeps a lot of those FedEx trucks rolling. But FedEx is an international company, and it attributed its weak quarter to a slowdown in the global economy. The company said it didnt do as well as expected in Europe, in part due to currency issues and growing competition. But it also said tariffs have resulted in a slowdown in trade, and that means fewer packages and less freight are being shipped….

White Nationalists Have Infiltrated the Military, Report Reveals

White Nationalists Have Infiltrated the Military, Report RevealsPatrick Casey came to the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on a mission. Casey, Executive Director of Identity Evropa, a white nationalist group that was involved in the Unite The Right Rally in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017, believes diversity is harmful to the United States and aims to create a “white supermajority.” He told NBC in an interview at CPAC that his organization aims to “To take over the GOP as much as possible.” If Identify Evropa hasn’t taken over the GOP as Casey hoped, his organization, HuffPost reports Monday, has made inroads in another key institution: the military. Seven members have been identified as Identity Evropa members, according to HuffPost’s investigation. HuffPost identified these members through leaked online chat logs from a server on Discord, a chat app popular among alt-right groups, which Identity Evropa members have used to communicate with…

Tucker Carlson demonizes immigrants because they support families overseas

Tucker Carlson demonizes immigrants because they support families overseasTUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Not every immigrant is like every other immigrant. Now don’t tell Kirsten Gillibrand, but they’re not all the same. Our current immigration system treats them like they are. It treats people like widgets. Our government does virtually nothing to separate the good from the bad. A system like that is not designed to help America, it’s designed for the benefit of foreigners and by that measure it has been wildly successful. … More than 10 million illegal aliens are believed to be working in this country under the table. And that is part of the reason that between 2012 and 2016 an estimated 39 million Social Security numbers were stolen from Americans for fraudulent use, a fact that’s rarely reported. But legal or not immigrants send their earnings abroad and they pay nothing when they do it because remittances are untaxed. It’s a pretty good deal for Mexico and Guatemala. When is the last…
