Mueller shivs Trump through faulty logic

As his last act as special counsel, Robert Mueller and his team of Democrat prosecutors gave one last piece of fodder to the Russia collusion hoaxers in the media and on the Left. 

In the conclusion of their report, which was released Thursday, Mueller and his partisan prosecutors played word games in refusing to give the president the benefit of the doubt when it comes to the Russia hoax. Instead of rightly exonerating the president of wrongdoing, Mueller’s team complained that they could not conclude that the president “clearly did not commit obstruction of justice.”

Read my piece at Conservative Review breaking down Mueller’s faulty — and malicious — logical omission.

Notre Dame Cathedral fire cause remains a mystery

French officials have been unable thus far to track down the cause of the Notre Dame Cathedral fire, which resulted in devastating amounts of damage to the historical landmark.

Their latest suspicions involve a potential “computer glitch” and a temporary new elevator system that could have sparked the fire, Fox News reports.

The French government appears committed to rebuilding the damaged parts of the cathedral as soon as possible

North Korea demands Pompeo’s removal from nuclear talks

North Korean officials are demanding that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is sidelined from future talks between the United States and North Korea.

It appears Pyongyang officials’ sensitivities are on edge after Pompeo agreed recently that Kim Jong Un, the North Korean ruler, is equivalent to a “tyrant.”

“Even in the case of possible resumption of dialogue with the US, I wish our dialogue counterpart would not be Pompeo but … [another] person who is more careful and mature in communicating with us,” North Korean official Kwon Jong-Un told the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

Iran military parade showcases “homemade” F-5 knockoffs

The Tehran regime held a large military parade this week, which was attended by their figurehead president Hassan Rouhani, showcasing the regime’s supposed military prowess.

“Iran showcased its domestically made fighter jets by flying the aircraft over Tehran during a military parade Thursday marking National Army Day,” the Associated Press reported.

Except these jets are hardly products of Iranian innovation. Instead, they appear to be copies of American F-5 fighter planes that were developed about half a century ago.

During the rally, Rouhani called on Iran’s allies to unite against the United States and “drive back Zionism.”

White House pumps brakes on Israel-Palestine peace plan

Jared Kushner, the senior White House adviser who is responsible for crafting a “peace plan” for Israel and the Palestinians, announced this week that the plan won’t be publicly rolled out before June.

The Jerusalem Post reports:

“Jared Kushner, US President Donald Trump’s senior adviser, told foreign diplomats on Wednesday that the “deal of the century” will not be released before the end of Ramadan, in June, a source familiar with the remarks told The Jerusalem Post.

Kushner spoke in front of 100 foreign diplomats and ambassadors at Blair House and asked them to keep an open mind regarding the plan, adding it would require both sides to “compromise.”
