Fusion GPS Founder Refuses to Identify ‘Russian Dossier’ Sources in Senate Interview

From Gateway Pundit:
Fusion GPS also stands behind the dossier, a lawyer for the firm said at the end of a 10-hour interview given by co-founder Glenn Simpson. 
“Mr. Simpson told Congress the truth and cleared the record on many matters of interest to congressional investigators. He also kept the identities of Fusion GPS’ clients confidential,” Josh Levy, Simpson’s attorney, told The Daily Caller in a statement. 
Simpson appeared for the interview after weeks of negotiations between his attorneys and the committee, which is one of three congressional panels investigation potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

What could be the exact politics of Tim Seeley's "Brilliant Trash"?

The comics writer Tim Seeley's been interviewed by the Hollywood Reporter (via Science Fiction) about a bizarre comic he's written up called "Brilliant Trash", which features what appears to be a Muslim teen girl destroying Jerusalem, as seen in the panel posted on the side. This is what the trade paper says this about:
Brilliant Trash, co-created with artist Priscilla Petraites, begins with the destruction of Jerusalem at the hands of a superhuman teenage girl, which introduces a near-future dystopia in which anyone can be a superhero — but only one journalist knows how pricey a proposition that really is. Heat Vision talked briefly with Seeley about the new series.
From the looks of things, it would seem as though this story is about an Islamofascist who declared jihad on the historical Jewish city. The question, undoubtably, is whether it's depicted as an abominable, inhumane act. I should hope so. But according to the following statements from Seeley, this book is supposed to be satire:
The world of the series feels very much like it's prime satire, taking elements of today and ramping them up to 11: Journalists that no one believes! Fractured media that tells everyone what they want to hear! Conspiracy theories where corporations keep information from the people! Does this come from a love of satire, or a sense of "I have to write this now before reality eclipses me in a couple of days"?

It's both! But my favorite sci-fi has always been the material that takes current trends to a seemingly ridiculous satirical end, because those are the things that end up being accurate. We laughed at the ads in Robocop, but they mostly came true. As a person, I have to fight myself not to make fun of everything — but Brilliant Trash allows me to do it, and be absolutely savage about it.

As the solicitation for the first issue reveals, you're literally wiping Jerusalem off the face of the earth at the very start of this series. As far as opening gambits go, there's attention-grabbing and then there's attention-grabbing. Are you anticipating a lot of feedback on that particular plot point?

Ha, I never anticipate feedback, because I never know what's going to really sink in with readers. But there's very much a reasoning behind why Lady LastWord [the character responsible for the destruction of Jerusalem] does this, and we'll see that motivation unfold over the course of the first five issues.
I'm not sure what to make of a tale that's built on satire, considering the book involves a serious issue like religiously motivated assault and annihilation. After all, there's nothing funny in real life about jihadists who commit murder in high numbers. Yet we're living in an age when the industry has almost entirely censored the subject of fighting against Islamic terrorism, and if they do address it, they take blame-the-victim paths, as seen in the unreadable Marvel Knights volume of Captain America in the early 2000s. If Seeley's not playing his cards right, then he's only served up another letdown. Serious issues aren't something you should just present as satire.

Since we're on the subject of Seeley, here's a few tweets he wrote in the past week, giving an idea of where he stands on the political map, mostly to the left:

I'm guessing they're RINOs, right? That is, Republicans In Name Only. Among those he retweeted include Mitt Romney and John McCain, the latter who's opposed repairing the damage wrought by Obamacare. I can't say I'm shocked when some mega-leftie considers faux-conservatives the reliable bunch, but not those who actually care about the public's future.

Well my grandpa, who died in 1972, about 2 years before I was born, also fought in the second World War. And labels had nothing to do with it, just altruism, far more than Franklin Delano Roosevelt ever showed. So this is Seeley's way of saying he apparently buys into the notion that Antifa's really a heroic, patriotic movement, when in reality, they're as repellent as the white supremacists who littered up Charlottesville. Even some hardcore leftists admit Antifa's basically the same as those they're "protesting".

Well at least he's thanking Russia's government for wisely opposing any associations with supremacist news sources, where all their commentary is loathsome as can be. However, he also retweeted this post from Snopes, apparently claiming it's not true what Trump said about Gen. Pershing's war on Islam, hinting he's still part of the anti-Trump crowd. And I think he should ponder that Snopes, in reality, is one of the most dishonest leftist websites around. Definitely not a site I'd consider trustworthy.

Seeley may not be the worst liberal out there in the comics medium, but he may not be the best informed either. And based on what the news is telling about his new comics story, he may not have done a very good job addressing a serious topic. In that case, what would be so "brilliant" about the trash he conceived?

Charlottesville Council Votes to Cloak Statues With Fabric Just Like ISIS, Taliban and Fellow Islamists

Charlottesville Council Votes to Cloak Statues With Fabric Just Like ISIS, Taliban and Fellow Islamists

Of course they would be very offended by the comparison to the Taliban, because they fully believe they are morally superior to all of us - to the point that they can not see the other side to any opinion.

Personally, I am not a fan of Confederate Statues. 

As a white man, if I were to see a state of, say, Malcolm X planted in the middle of one of the streets of my city, I would be offended.

I am offended that there is a statue of Joseph Stalin Joseph Stalin in Seattle. I find that to be an abomination.

But I understand that one of the costs of living in a Constitutional Republic is that I must live with the opinions of others. 

And that's ok with me.

The Left, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and Obama's various Orcs, do not agree.

It's their way or the highway.

Trump: 'Probably' end up terminating NAFTA, 'Liberating' Towns of Illegals


Sometimes Donald Trump really has a way with words. He's like a Poet of Pragmatism.
"The people of Arizona know the deadly and heartbreaking consequences of illegal immigration," Trump said at a rally. "The lost lives, the drugs, the gangs, the cartels, the crisis of smuggling and trafficking, and MS-13. We are throwing them out so fast, they never got thrown out of anything like this. We are liberating towns out in Long Island. We are liberating. Can you imagine in this day and age? In this day and age in this country, we are liberating towns." 
"This is like from a different age. We are taking these people. They don't shoot people because it's too fast and not painful. They cut them up into little pieces. These are animals. We are getting them out of here. We are throwing them in jail, throwing them out of the country. We are liberating our towns," Trump said to cheers. 
"After years of defending other countries borders, can you believe we fight for other countries? We want to defend their borders. We're finally defending our own borders," Trump said. 
President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he doubts the United States can reach a deal to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement. 
"Personally, I don't think we can make a deal ... I think we'll end up probably terminating NAFTA at some point," he said at a rally in Arizona of the efforts to tweak the three-nation deal with Mexico and Canada. 
"I personally don't think you can make a deal without a termination but we're going to see what happens, OK? You're in good hands, I can tell you," he added. Trump's comments appeared to hit the Mexican peso.
