Who Is Lisa H. Barsoomian?

  Keep the question in the headline in your mind. Early this morning, I received a PayPal contribution from a frequent commenter here, who urged me “in the name of all that’s holy” to pay attention to a long and complicated story posted at Reddit. It seems kind of crazy, but it all makes sense […]

The ‘Deep State’ Is Real: Whistleblower Punished for Pentagon Spy Complaint

Rowan Scarborough reports at The Washington Times: A Trump-supporting Pentagon analyst was stripped of his security clearance by Obama-appointed officials after he complained of questionable government contracts to Stefan Halper, the FBI informant who spied on the Trump presidential campaign.

Dear @Alyssa_Milano: Perhaps Try Reducing Your Media Kool-Aid Intake

  What does Trump Derangement Syndrome look like? A popular actress who is convinced that the only explanation for third-party votes in a special congressional election is Russian meddling.
